If you research our English word “dynamite” you will find that it stems from the Greek word dunamis. Dunamis was the term used to refer to strength, power, or ability and is where we get other English words dynamo and dynamic. Pastor Morgan along with the men, women, and youth leadership teams have condensed three separate weeks of teaching and worship into three powerful nights. This year’s Family Conference, June 12 – 14, is called “Power Week 2018.” And make no mistake about it, the week will be dunamis!
June 12 (Men)
The men kick the week off with two powerful sessions. The titles, “He Motions: Effective Management for Stress & Anger” and “What is She Thinking: A Look into the Mystery of the Female Psyche” indicate June 12 will be the time to “man-up.”
The “He Motions” session will empower (gk. dunamis) men with effective ways to manage stress and anger. Pastor Andre Thomas, Certified Behavioral Counselor from Pinnacle Counseling Center, LLC, will facilitate this session. The “What is She Thinking” session is intended to help men improve their relationships with women by understanding how women think. This session will consist of a panel of five women who will answer questions submitted by men.
The guest psalmist for the evening will be artist/musician Lowell Pye. In 1990, he joined the ministry of John P. Kee, and that lead to his membership in Men of Standard with Isaac Carree.
