Men at the Cross
Today millions of Christians around the world observe Good Friday, a day to commemorate Jesus Christ's death on the cross. But for many men in Southeast Missouri, the cross was at the center of a discussion well before today.
Last Friday about 1,000 individuals came together at a Men at the Cross conference held in Cape Girardeau where the attendees were encouraged to be men of God.
Men at the Cross has its headquarters in Cape Girardeau, but Friday's conference was the first to take place in the city. Established in 2008, the organization has held conferences in more than 50 U.S. cities.
Joe White, founder and president of Men at the Cross, Dr. Rick Rigsby and Ted Cunningham all spoke on discipleship at the conference.
"What we're looking for is seven days a week of men being godly men," said Men at the Cross vice president Jimmy Wilferth. Wilferth said at the core of the ministry is a desire to help men consistently serve as Biblical leaders in society.
It's thrilling to see men seek to grow spiritually and subsequently become better husbands, fathers and leaders. The Men at the Cross organization is to be commended for its impact, and may many more men be reached through the ministry.
