Men’s Conference; ‘ONE’ To Be Held At Grace Community UMC

The theme for CMU 2017 is “ONE” which is based on Ephesians 4:1-6.  With this conference, the focus is on racial unity and reconciliation within God’s collective church.  The attempt is to bring as many Tampa Bay area pastors and the men of their congregations together under one roof to be the example of racial reconciliation to the world. White, black, and Hispanic brothers just want to worship and fellowship with others that look like them. This isn’t right and God cannot be pleased with what He sees. John 17:20-23 says that all believers are supposed to be the epitome of unity and love so that the world will know that Jesus was sent by God.  

The schedule is as follows: Friday, May 5 from 7-10 p.m. – Praise & Worship with speaker Pastor HB Charles, Shiloh Church, from Jacksonville; Saturday May 6 from 8 a.m.-3 p.m. – Praise & Worship with Speakers Jon Couch, This Day Ministries, and Pastor Keith Babb, The Way Church of Tampa Bay followed by lunch and an open forum on race in the church.

The conference will be held at Grace Community United Methodist Church, located at 5708 Lithia Pinecrest Rd. in Lithia. Ticket Prices are $35 for adults, $25 for youth, college students, pastors and military).
For more information or to register, visit or call 220-5296.
