[What if ...the Journey to Manhood came with a Map?]On behalf of the Northern Illinois Conference UMM, I invite you to join us at Williams Bay Wisconsin, September 13-15th for our 54th Spiritual Congress. All clergy and men of the UMC are invited for a relaxing weekend in one of the most beautiful spots in America.

The guest speaker is David Murrow, a dynamic speaker, author, and teacher. He is not a pastor, professor, or theologian. He is just a guy in the pews who noticed a disturbing trend; churches are losing their men and boys and as a result wrote the book, “Why Men Hate Going to Church”, which became an instant Christian bestseller. David Murrow will focus on a map to becoming a disciple, drawing men into relationships to facilitate becoming a disciple and grow as a disciple of Christ.
