Featured Speaker: Kevin Teasley

Topic: Everything I needed to know about being a MAN, I learned as a BOY

The ultimate question of life is first asked in elementary school: “Do you like me?  Check YES or NO.”  We were created with a deep need to matter, to belong and to be known. Another was one we learned in Kindergarten "Hide and Seek"— the problem is we never stopped playing the game! In spite of this longing to be known, we've become experts at hiding and not being known. 
How do you play hide? At work? Hobbies? Leisure? Tech? FaceTime, Skype, but it's monumental to show up, listen, talk, laugh and be known. How are you seeking? Your wife wants to be known! Your kids want to be found! God designed you to be "IT" permanently for them... do you know that? 

Maybe you’re like me, and it has dawned on you that you are lonely. You can’t escape your design, and we were built to live fully…fully alive to God and others.  We were made to be truthful, dependent, and present.  In other words, to “show up” in relationships.
