Hear Joe White (www.kanakuk.com) discuss the vision of this developing nation-wide movement called Men at the Cross (www.menathecross.org). The very first gathering of MATC was in the Scott Trade Center in St. Louis, MO, July 11 & 12. Similar gatherings will occur in upwards of 30 cities throughout the USA in the next two years. While having some similarities to the great meetings of Luis Palau, Billy Graham, and Promise Keepers, an added focus of MATC will be specific action toward one-on-one Biblical discipleship. Before leaving, each man present will be given (1) a challenge to meet for several weeks with another man and will be given (2) materials segmented for weekly use in assisting another man to be a growing follower of Jesus.
This is II Timothy 2:2 in action:
And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable men who will also be qualified to teach others. (Paul…Timothy…reliable men…others) (II Timothy 2:2)
