Showtime at the GEC

PK Nashville Posted by Picasa

The day has finally arrived! I head downtown to be part of an army of 800 plus volunteers to serve the nearly 14,000 participants of this year's Sold Out Nashville Promise Keepers men's conference. Volunteers from Florida to Michigan, Arkansas to Georgia are giving of their time to set the stage for what always proves to be a life impacting event for men and their families.

Promise Keepers has always impacted the communities it visits with Serve The City initiatives. In February of 1998 in Nashville, 60 local volunteers refurbished Murphy Alternative School with landscaping, repairs and painting all the classrooms. This year, a canned food drive will take place at all 20 "Awakening" men's conferences in 2005.

Volunteers in Fort Wayne process some of the 6,000 pounds of donated food that was collected for the Community Harvest Food Bank.
