When most men get together it’s to talk about sports or hobbies. But an event scheduled for the second weekend of March is designed to get them to talk and think about what it means to be a godly man in today’s society.
The 2020 Ignite Men’s Impact Weekend will be held March 13-14 in Lynchburg, VA to focus on biblical manhood. Headliners for the event include former NFL quarterback turned Minor League Baseball player Tim Tebow, retired Navy Seal Marcus Luttrell and Dr. Tim Clinton.
For the Ignite event, thousands of men—fathers, sons, brothers, seekers, and Christ-followers—will come together to worship God and learn more about the life of true adventure He intends for them. The two-day experience is packed with workshops, exhibits, and fun around what men love: hunting, fishing, football, motorcycles, racing, extreme sports, and other outdoor activities.
Additional speakers at Ignite include Family Research Council’s Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Jerry Boykin, Pastor Jentezen Franklin and “The Bear Man,” among others. Grammy Award-winning artist Jason Crabb will be in concert. Zach Clinton will serve as the conference host.
Dr. Clinton, the co-author of the new book Take It Back: Reclaiming Biblical Manhood for the Sake of Marriage, Family, and Culture, will speak to conference attendees Friday night about how they can return to the definition that God set forth for manhood—not the one that society has pushed upon men.
“It’s no secret there’s been a beatdown on men,” Clinton writes in the book, “on anything that’s masculine, on anything that smacks of testosterone—from the radical push to feminize men to changing the core nature of what it means to be masculine. But God made man for a purpose and a reason. Max Davis and I explore in Take It Back what men have lost, how significant the fight we are engaged in is, and how to step by step take back what we’ve lost and what we’ve given away.”
“Something is happening,” Clinton adds. “Something is stirring—something so significant we can’t even wrap our minds around it. It’s like a tsunami coming among men. There’s fire. There’s energy. God is waking the hearts of men to do one thing, to step into this moment, for such a time of this.
