Cornerstone Festival, the church’s most diverse celebration of Christians in art and culture, has a new look and a new pricing structure. To the seasoned attendees, the festival might take on a vintage feel.
For the past 29 years, faith-filled attendees of all ages, styles and denominations have made the pilgrimage to the hills of Western Illinois for this week-long celebration. They come to be inspired through seminary level classes and discussions, entertained with the best in music and film, spurred to further creativity with visual art, invigorated through sport and competition and to experience spiritual renewal among this diverse gathering of believers that makes the Cornerstone Festival community.

Kenny is a friend as well as the founder of the Every Man Movement, and Men’s Pastor at Saddleback Church. Guys – subscribe to In Your Corner via the link at the top right of the Every Man Ministries web site. Enjoy this reminder and encouragement today. 🙂

Kenny Luck’s Every Man Ministries has encouraged, inspired and activated over a million men in the last decade. Kenny and Every Man’s driving force is to engage and equip men with powerful tools which help them deliver God’s justice and love to a waiting world. This vision, and the response of thousands of men who have taken the challenge, has inspired Every Man Ministries to create a YouTube channel focused on identifying and answering the core issues men face, often in secret and isolation. The channel, hosted by men’s expert and Every Man founder Kenny Luck, begins with the most frequently asked Top 100 Secret Questions from men. The video channel can be accessed from www.everymanministries.com, or directly at www.youtube.com/everymanministries.

In the face of Newsweek’s recent cover story “Man Up” (http://tinyurl.com/newsweek-men), and the controversial piece “The End of Men” in The Atlantic earlier this summer (http://tinyurl.com/the-end-of-men), many discussions are taking place on just how men are losing their hold on society.
