Every enduring culture is built on the character of its heroes and the courage of its warriors. In a world that seems more concerned with the calorie content of children’s lunches than the character content of children’s hearts, we as Christian men and fathers must focus on the development of character. For it is the demise of character that results in the destruction of great cultures.
Today I'm privileged to invite you to attend CMN's Global Summit, Lions Roar 2018 to hear one of the great cultural heroes of our day, Bishop TD Jakes. Men who heard Bishop Jakes minister at Lions Roar 1999 still today can recite much of his message. It was a moment. It left a mark.
Lions Roar 2018 is a Summit not one of us will ever forget. You'll want your sons and grandsons there. Your friends, your pastor. Tell everyone and get registered! They will thank you for years.
Strong men, strong families, strong churches transform culture.Let’s be the men who transform culture for God!
It's my honor to present to you Bishop TD Jakes:
