MoMentum Men’s Annual “Real Manhood” Breakfast & Conference
Saturday, February 24, 2018
7:00AM – 4:00PM
Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. (Romans 12:2a.)
Sometime men become so well-adjusted to the pattern of this world that they fit into it without even thinking.
Godly men are to display the reality of God in a new way of living.
How are you transformed by the renewing of your mind?
How do you change your thinking?
Unlike the world around us, always dragging us down in areas of our lives to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of us, develops well-formed maturity in us … INSIDE OUT!

SESSION ONE 9:45 - 10:45
3 Steps to Getting Your Walk with Jesus Back on Track: Deuteronomy 6:5
Getting your groove back has everything to do with living and loving upward. Every relationship begins, and is ultimately sustained, by saying “yes.” Even though you may be off track right now, in order to see transformation happen in your own life, you need to respond to God’s love by returning that love.
Why You Aren’t Living the Life You Want: Galatians 5:22-23
God wants us to be people of love and joy and peace. He wants to build endurance into our lives and instill in us compassion for those who need our help. He is ready to bestow the qualities of champions—generosity, integrity, humility, and self-discipline. Our need is a rekindling of nine traits that go to the core of character and are called the “fruit of the Spirit” in Galatians 5:22-23.
What Does Repentance Look Like? 1 John 1:9
When it comes to repentance of our own sins before God, we may not be as hasty to act. We may even view it as a “checklist” of sorts—a mindless confession at the end of the day.
However, true repentance comes when we desire to live lives worthy of the grace and mercy of our Savior.
5 Things Every Married Couple Should Do: Ephesians 5:25-28
If you’re married, it’s likely you’ve heard the phrase “You’ve got to make time to invest in your marriage.” While it sounds like a noble idea, the concept of “investing in your marriage” can seem so far away for many couples, particularly during the first decade of marriage. It’s hard to figure out how to find the time or energy to “invest” in one more thing during these busy seasons of life. So, in a practical sense, what does it actually mean to invest in your marriage when life is crazy and beyond?
The Responsibility of Single Dads: Romans 8:37
Single parenting is by far one of the most addressed issues when it comes to family structure in our country these days. Having a single dad who is engaged in a personal one on one relationship with the Lord is extremely vital for the spiritual and overall growth of his children.
How to Curb the Conflicts of Co-Parenting: Titus 3:2
There has never been a more difficult job than co-parenting. It requires dealing with the “worms in the can” and letting painful emotions take a back seat to the needs of the children.
If God is in Control, Why Should We Pray? 1 John 5:14
It’s a question we’ve all asked from time to time. If God controls each and every event, from the tiniest to the greatest, and has already decided what will happen, then why pray? After all, if it’s going to happen anyway, what possible difference can your prayers or mine make?
SESSION TWO 10:55 - 11:55
Dealing with dirt and Hurt – When to Call in the Cavalry: John 16:33
Tough times happen. This world isn’t a cozy comforter. It’s more of a wet blanket that wants to wrap around you when you feel lost, defeated, rejected and discouraged. The world provides liquid “spirits,” drugs, fantasy women and images to soothe, but these only drag us down a path of destruction.
If God Forgives, Why Don’t I Feel Forgiven? 1 John 1: 8-9
The truth is that we can confess our sins and ask God to forgive us, yet still feel condemned and filled with shame because of our past sins and current struggles. Satan wants us to believe that we are beyond God’s forgiveness. He tells us lies that make us feel as if other people can be free, but we never can be.
Choosing to Believe When There’s Every Reason Not To: Isaiah 36
How can we keep our faith when every indication is that our faith is misplaced?
How can we trust God to deliver us when others have fallen?
How do we respond when the world tears us down, and we have no tangible evidence that the world is wrong?
Wounds and Warriors: John 4
Like soldiers returning from battle, all of us bring injuries, memories and enemies back to our relationships that can sabotage our lives. We are walking wounded with battle scars, broken hearts, and snake-bitten minds. Unfortunately, these wounds are not badges of honor either. When the right buttons are pushed, a cascade of emotions, conflicts and behaviors are ejected onto our relationships, homes and our work. So what do we men do?
The Five Keys Men Must Use as Intentional Leaders: Philippians 3:12
Family leadership was God’s perfect plan from the moment he created man and made him a husband and father. In homes today, the leader of the family shoulders the responsibility to provide vision, direction, and comfort for present and future generations. Men are called by God into great leadership responsibility within their marriages and homes. They are called to make kingdom impact.
What’s the Difference Between Doubt and Unbelief? 1 Corinthians 13:12
We know in part, and that is why we walk by faith and not by sight. Faith lives with unanswered questions. You cannot live in this world without asking, “Why?
How to Help Your Son Succeed in Life: Ephesians 6:4
The current lack of healthy role models in our culture can be discouraging when you consider the influences your son has growing up. But with God’s help, you can help your son successfully grow from a boy into the man God wants him to become.
SESSION THREE 12:45 - 1:45
3 Ways to Fight Dating Temptations: 1 Cor. 10:13
We grow up learning about Eve being tempted in the Garden (Gen. 3:1-7) and Jesus’ temptation in the wilderness (Matt. 4:1-11). Maybe we’ve often repeated the Lord’s prayer that states, “Lead us not into temptation” (Matt. 6:13). Temptation presents itself in various forms, and different things tempt us differently.
Why You Don’t Want God to Answer Every Prayer:Jonah 4:3
Dear Lord, even if I pray in faith and dot all the i’s and cross all the t’s, but am praying something which I will regret forever and which is not what You have planned, please ignore me. Thank you for hearing this prayer!
Who – or What – is Controlling Your Choices? Proverbs 3:5-6
We must first discipline ourselves before desire comes. We must first empty ourselves in order to be filled. We must first obey before receiving the blessing. We must first break before there is restoration. We must first pray before there is transformation.
Does Your Inside Match Your Outside? Matthew 15:7-8
Outwardly they honored God. But they had no love for God. Their hearts – their inner persons – were impure – they acted religious to be noticed by men, not to please God.
Why Would God Want to Use Me? Romans 9:23
As believers, we love the Lord Jesus Christ, and we want to do something for our Savior who gave Himself for us. It’s normal for us to want to serve Him. So we ask God questions like, “What do You want me to do for You?” “Lord, what should I do to serve You?” and “How can You use me?”
Can You Miss God’s Will for Your Life? Romans 12:2
The fear of missing God’s will is enough to paralyze any Christian. But here’s the question: can a Christian miss the will of God for their life? Could you somehow go your entire life being outside of God’s good plan for you? Yes… and no.
If God Doesn’t Need Anything, Then Why Does He Command Us to Serve Him? Acts 17:24-25
The God who made the world and everything in it, being Lord of heaven and earth, does not live in temples made by man, nor is he served by human hands, as though he needed anything, since he himself gives to all mankind life and breath and everything. (Acts 17:24-25)
