GRAPEVINE, Tex., October 6, 2016 | Christian News Service | -- Fatherlessness is a growing epidemic and is considered to be the leading indicator to many socio-economic problems and increased rates of hunger, poverty, drug addiction, and health challenges.* One solution to correcting these critical issues is found in teaching men and mentoring boys through character development and training. For thirty-nine years, Christian Men’s Network (CMN) has supported grassroots efforts to train men and fathers in over 100 nations through the Maximized Manhood curriculum authored by the late Dr. Edwin Louis Cole. “Fathers are crucial to the long term sustainable health of any community. Building and training fathers helps to heal communities.  We have seen crime, violence and health issues reduced and transformation occur in communities when they teach men and boys how to walk in integrity, truth and the meaning of true manhood,” states Dr. Paul Louis Cole, CMN cofounder and president.  CMN was launched by Maximized Manhood author Edwin Louis Cole in 1977. CMN books, curriculum and videos are the most widely used men’s discipleship resources in the world. CMN materials are being used in every state and currently active in 116 nations.  Pastors, churches, business leaders, government officials, school administrators, and prison chaplains find CMN materials remarkably effective in any culture or community. Middle school principals report better attendance and reduced disciplinary incidences. Churches with active men’s programs show an average increase of 20% in membership, giving and volunteers. As part of its global initiative this November, Christian men from around the world are converging/gathering at the Lions Roar 2016 Global Men’s Summit in Dallas Texas November 9-11. Lions Roar is designed to provide teaching and time to exchange strategic solutions. Leaders in men’s discipleship are coming from every state and from more than 50 nations to participate in workshops and breakout sessions.  “The reason for gathering these influential leaders is to express practical answers to the issues that face our world. Leaders are coming from the rugged streets of West Baltimore, the rough and tumble favelas of Rio, the tumultuous Philippines, and more,” Cole continues, “CMN is more than a ministry, we are a human justice mission strategically focused to defeat fatherlessness, stop child abuse, and improve communities through practical training that provides long term benefit and results you can see. We are fully committed to the imperative that every child deserves a loving dad.” Lions Roar 2016 will focus on helping…

Prayer participation in U.S. sets new records in 2016 with gatherings that unite Christians from multiple streams of faith. United Cry DC16 hosts pastors, priests, Christian leaders and believers to pray as one for America on April 9, 2016 at the Lincoln Memorial. ARLINGTON, Tex., March 31, 2016 | Christian News Service | --The majority of Americans (58%) say they pray at least once a day, and 82% believe in the healing power of prayer, according to the Pew Research Center Study and Barna Research Group. Movies featuring prayer such as “The War Room” and “Miracles from Heaven” are succeeding. But  prayer in America is changing locations from the private “prayer room” to group prayer. In 2016, there are a record number of national events including the National Day of Prayer, World Day of Prayer, United Cry DC16, Azusa Street Revival, Rez Week, The Response, and dozens more. “There are more large prayer gatherings in 2016 than I’ve seen in 26 years of ministry,” says David Butts, President of Harvest Prayer Ministries and Chairman of America’s National Prayer Committee. “I’ve seen waves of prayer before but in addition to filling stadiums, this year there is exceptional collaboration among diverse streams of faith.” On April 9 at the Lincoln Memorial, United Cry DC16 is gathering pastors and Christian leaders from diverse backgrounds to pray for America. “People know that America is in crisis and prayer should be our first response,” states Lewis Hogan, Cofounder United Cry DC16. “We are honored by the incredible support from thousands of pastors and national leaders who are coming to United Cry to pray for our nation.” Participation in prayer events is growing. “In 2016 we are anticipating the largest National Day of Prayer in US history with more than 49,000 prayer gatherings,” says John Bornschein, Vice Chairman of the National Day of Prayer Task Force. “Over the last five years we charted a 226% increase in engagement, which is the largest growth in 25 years.” Technology is helping build the movement. In January 2016, the Pope released the first monthly prayer video. Campus Renewal is connecting 80 college campuses via satellite for united prayer, worship, and outreach during their national “Rez Week.” United Cry DC16 on April 9 will be a seven-hour prayer event that will challenge pastors and leaders to be the spiritual prayer leaders in their communities. The prayer focus of the event includes critical areas…
AUSTIN, Tex., March 29, 2016 | Christian News Service | — Forty college campuses across the country will unite for prayer, worship and sharing their faith, during Rez Week, March 28th through April 1st.  The goal of Rez Week is to “make Jesus the most talked about person on college campuses”. Hundreds of college students gathered at The University of Texas at Austin for prayer and worship from over 50 different organizations and churches on March 28, 2016. “It’s one event, happening in many different locations at the same time, of students coming together to seek God for the Jesus Movement of this generation,”says Jeremy Story, President of Campus Renewal, the organization behind Rez Week. To kick off Rez Week on Monday evening March 28th,  a hundred people, both students and others, engaged in a live interactive prayer broadcast from David's Tent. Rez Week, short for Resurrection Week, began in 1995 at The University of Texas at Austin, as a way for the various campus ministries and churches to set aside differences and come together around their belief in Jesus Christ. “Rez Week would give us the opportunity to get our ministries together to see that we all love Jesus and want to see him glorified,”states Matt Vanderworp, senior music education major at The University of Houston. Beginning in 1995, Rez Week took place on approximately one hundred campuses across America for several years. On the University of Texas at Austin Rez Week continues event though the national event was discontinued.  In the past two years, after much prayer and interest from College pastors, Campus Renewal felt it was time to reignite Rez Week and expand it nationally. “Every campus that starts a Rez Week is another campus that is impacted by the gospel,”says Kelsie Rogers, junior marketing major at The University of Texas at Austin, which has continued doing Rez Week the past twenty-two years, “The amount of changed lives will multiply as a result of other campuses doing this event.” The campuses doing Rez Week include big ones and small, community colleges and four year universities, Christian and secular schools, from nearly every region of the United States.  Each campus’s event will vary, from single nights of united prayer, to week long festivals with various activities. “There are 33,000 people on our campus and only about 1% of them know Christ,”Kevin Chieng, a senior studying kinesiology at San Jose…

This event is precursor to the International Day of the Bible on November 23 WASHINGTON D.C., November 20, 2015 | Christian News Service | -- The National Bible Association (www.nationalbible.org) hosted a special scripture reading Tuesday on the east lawn of the U.S. Capitol. This special event honored America’s Biblical foundation as a number of Congressmen read from the historic Aitken Bible, printed in 1782. Also, there was a special reading of the Lord’s prayer from the Eliot Indian Bible, the first Bible printed in North America, by Naticksqw Chief Caring Hands. The Bibles for this event were coordinated by Museum of the Bible (www.museumoftheBible.org). U.S. Senate Chaplain Barry Black offered a prayer during the event, praying for the United States as well as the people of Paris. Elected officials then read from Matthew, chapter 5 and read through chapter 7, verse 10 in succession. Readers included Rep. Robert Aderholt, Sen. Tom Carper, Rep. Louie Gohmert, Rep. Steve King, Sen. Tim Scott, and Sen. John Thain. U.S. House of Representatives Chaplain Pat Conroy was also a part of the program. "This was an incredibly moving day for us as the words of the Bible resonated across the capitol grounds from the voices of some our governments leaders," said Richard Glickstein, president of the National Bible Society. "The opportunity to honor the scripture in public is part of the foundations of this great country and something all of us should be thankful for. This event set the stage for the upcoming International Day of the Bible which will be held on Monday, Nov. 23 at noon in local time zones around the world. People of all ages are being invited to participate by taking pause for a few minutes to read or even sing Scripture or otherwise creatively express their love of The Good Book. International Day of the Bible is sponsored by the National Bible Association. Organizations like The American Bible Society, YouVersion, Bible Gateway, Scripture Union, Museum of the Bible and Bibles for the World are encouraging participation within their own communities. A person could simply read a favorite passage with family, friends, co-workers and schoolmates, but participation can go beyond just Bible reading. Other ideas include breaking into a flash mob, singing and dancing Scripture, painting or drawing a picture with a few lines of a verse, or capturing God's creations in photos, selfies included, and sharing them along with a beloved Psalm.
