Audio Download for Radio GRAPEVINE, Tex., October 6, 2016 | TruthPR | -- 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 Christian leaders advance and expand their mission with strategies that include mentoring, youth camps, social media, building strong families and powerful social communities. Dedicated men from all streams of Christianity are invited to Lions Roar on November 9-11, at Gateway Church/Grand Prairie, in Dallas, Texas. Registration for Lions Roar 2016 is still open. Join thousands of men from across the world who are gathering for this extraordinary event. “Mission” is the theme for the Lions Roar Global Men’s Summit. Meetings will be held at Gateway Church, Grand Prairie, TX on Wednesday-Friday, November 9-11. Information can be obtained at 817-437-4888 orwww.lionsroar2016.com/join .  Group discounts available.  Register today. Watch the Lions Roar video and listen to leaders.

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. See content of the day unfold by following the hashtag #BibleCelebration on social media. B-roll and pictures of the event at the capitol are available for use by the media.
