New series starting THURSDAY, September 5, 2019:
The Commissioning of the Disciples
R E G I S T E R N O W B E L O W ↓
The eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had ordered them. When they saw him, they worshiped, but they doubted. Then Jesus approached and said to them
“All power in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.”Matthew 28:16-20
In light of our own baptism, this year we want to emphasize in the importance of the commission given to us by our Lord Jesus Christ of to GO and make DISCIPLES. This is not a suggestion or a question made by Jesus but a command: GO. Jesus sends us just as he was sent by his Father to proclaim that God is love. Yes, we are call to proclaim the Gospel. “Journey Together” wants to give you the necessary tools for you to accomplish this mission at home, church, work and everywhere! Take the next step and become a disciple and help others to become disciples.

On August 6, 2016 the Men of STM hosted Fathers Matter. The focus of Fathers Matter was to raise awareness of the importance of fathers taking an active and intentional role in the spiritual formation of our children and grandchildren. Men’s spiritual leadership in the family not only matters, it is paramount as we guide our children and grandchildren through all the noise and moral distractions of our culture. The speakers at the event were Lamar Hunt Jr, Dan Spencer and Joe Gawron. Some comments from the men who attended include
“What a top-notch event. I’m going to step up my game as a grandfather.”
“WOW!!! All three presenters were powerful and I learned some great lessons that I had been missing as a father. Thanks!”
“I’m glad I was able to come and I’m glad you recorded the speakers so I can watch them again. Too much great material to catch it all just once.”
Videos of the event
We express our great appreciation to Lamar, Dan and Joe and to Mike McGlinn Jr. to made these recordings possible.
Most people don’t have 90 minutes to watch these. So, we suggest that you make an appointment to watch one a day for several days. We would love to hear your feedback so click here to send us your comments.
