Main Sessions with Bruce Hooley

To help guide our thinking and inspire our behaving, we have invited Bruce Hooley to be our keynote speaker in our three Main Sessions. His messages will address: Who Am I; Why Am I Here and How Can I Be Sure That My Life Will Have An Impact.

Bruce resides in Plain City with his wife, Sheri, and their daughters, Katie (18), Rachel (16) and Lexee (12).

Breakout Seminars

Each MOG Conference is supported by breakout seminars that reflect the main theme and enhance the day. We hope you'll find these helpful in your walk of faith.

Evangelize Like a Man

Tyler Kramer

To be a man of God, an element of evangelizing has to be included. How do you share your faith like a man? It is not harsh or soft, weak or easy, but it is bold, loving, firm, and passionate. Come and be challenged on what your next step in evangelism as a man looks like.

Growing | Mentoring | Learning

Dan Bragg

How has God designed us to grow?  How can we get on the path of the Good Life/The Abundant Life?  What are we going to do about the conundrum of the Donald Rumsfeld "Unknown, unknowns"? It is time we men live out our God-created mandate and bring along others in the process, and even more so, bring along our own families!! Let's come together and allow scripture to take away some of the mystery as to what God is wanting to do with us.

Truth…Destroyer of Impurity

Wayne Downing

Do you struggle with unclean thoughts? Do you think that the battle for pure thoughts is hopeless? Pastor Wayne will share helpful, effective exercises which can equip the man of God to have an abundant, victorious thought life.

Intentional Influencers

Reno Stapleton & Lee Roberts

Each generation seems to be stepping further away from belief in God. We know that intentional relationships are crucial to pointing people to Christ. "How are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard?" Romans 10:14b. We want to create opportunities, space, and environments that allow for conversations to be had around the gospel.
