Lake Forest, CA &ndash Best-selling author and Men&rsquos expert, Kenny Luck, will be hosting a special event for the attendees of the National Coalition of Ministries to Men Reload &rsquo12 Conference on September 18.&nbsp Attendees will be bused to Saddleback Church for a tour and discussion about Luck&rsquos successful SLEEPING GIANT ministry model which moves men from affiliated to activated, creating leaders united to serve the senior pastor&rsquos mission and vision for their local church.

&nbsp

The National Coalition of Ministries to Men (NCMM) is a partnership of over 150 organizations and independent ministers with one objective: to advance the leadership of men into disciples of Christ and spread the good news of Jesus Christ to all men in America and ultimately around the world.&nbsp NCMM is unprecedented in its collaboration representing more than 200,000 churches worldwide.

&nbsp

The Reload &lsquo12 Conference attracts international church and denominational leaders.&nbsp Held in Ontario, CA from September 17-19, Reload &lsquo12 will inspire and recharge church leadership with challenging messages, strategies and the opportunity to engage with leaders committed to building disciple-making churches.

&nbsp

During the special event to be held at Saddleback Church, Luck will be discussing the SLEEPING GIANT total solution to men&rsquos ministry that was developed and tested over the past decade through churches of every size within the Purpose Driven Network, in the U.S. and around the world. He will also be hosting a tour of the Saddleback facilities and discussing Saddleback’s ministry which engages over 8,000 men in weekly small groups, in men&rsquos personal growth and leadership development processes to develop stronger faith, relationships, community involvement.&nbsp

&nbsp

Luck is excited about the role NCMM will be filling in the church in the days to come. &ldquoThe ministries connected to NCMM are helping churches wake the Sleeping Giant&mdashmen who name Christ as Lord and are called to serve Him in their families, communities, and local church.&nbsp The local church aspect is what we are going to discuss.&nbsp For years men have been meeting in groups outside the church in the workplace and community disconnected from the local church mission and leadership.&nbsp That trend is changing and the ministries connected to NCMM are going to play a critical role in helping local pastors resource their men.&rdquo

&nbsp

SLEEPING GIANT is THE blueprint for Men’s Ministry for churches of 200 to 20,000 a year-long strategy that is scalable for any size church, moving men from bystanders to the front lines. SLEEPING GIANT enables pastors to turn their crowd of affiliated men into a core of activated men and leaders who are aligned with their senior pastor&rsquos vision and mission.&nbsp The process has been documented and outlined in the seminal book on men&rsquos ministry, SLEEPING GIANT: No Movement of God without Men of God, published by Lifeway Church Resources and B&ampH Publishing. Kenny Luck and SLEEPING GIANT are also the cornerstone of men&rsquos ministry resources provided by Lifeway and the Southern Baptist Convention.

&nbsp

The Reload &rsquo12 Conference will be held at the Radisson Ontario Airport Hotel Sept 17-19 in Ontario, CA.&nbsp For more information or registration information, please see the official website: http://www.ncmm.org.
