I am personally inviting you to join hundreds of global influencers, thought leaders, creators, and provocateurs in Dallas, Texas this November 8-10. Against the tide of unholy arrogance, abuse, fatherlessness, and the persecution of righteousness, strong men are converging from the US, Brazil, Bulgaria, Ulaanbataar and beyond. It’s a historic gathering. One pastor from Los Angeles wrote me after attending last year’s summit: “I’ve never been as challenged, as affirmed, or as motivated as I was at Lions Roar.

God's man, the prophet Elijah, got depressed, discouraged, down. He cried, “Oh God, nothing's right! Nobody cares, and I'm the only guy who's following you.” But God told Elijah, in essence, to stop stressing. He said, “There are 7,000 other men just like you.” Whether you’re up or down right now, you need to know that men who have the same passion you have are gathering for Lions Roar 2018 in Dallas this November 8-10, and we want you there. Our theme this year is “Brotherhood” because it's about coming together as brothers to accomplish something we can't do by ourselves. Our message is:...
