I have the honor to speak again at this year’s Men’s Rewired Conference. This year’s conference is divided up into “Truth Tracks.” My Truth Track is: Becoming Men of Truth and Integrity in God’s Divine Intent for Sexuality. This truth track will encourage men to embrace God’s divine intent for their sexuality. The goal will be to embrace the Father’s truth and to be equipped with practical Biblical steps for freedom where one walks with consistent relational and sexual integrity. This will be a call of opening up one’s secret world of thinking before God, and then eventually before men who are safe to confess. We will discuss many verses of the Bible and in the discussion bringing practical application of the word of God so it becomes alive and active in the soul; not merely hearing the law being proclaimed. It is imperative that the word of God is received relationally in the power of the Holy Spirit to overcome all forms of sexual sin. When Romans 6:12-14 & Romans 12:1-2 is lived out in the power of God’s transformative–grace by the Holy Spirit, God’s Word and His perfect Ways bring about change and joy in men’s lives!
“Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts. And do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace.” Romans 6:12-14
“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” Romans 12:1-2
Key Verse: God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness…, So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them (Imago Dei). Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it…” (Gen. 1:26a, 1:27a).
Identify: Knowing the amazing plan and gift of God in ‘Imago Dei’ (the image of God in male and female) and His Divine Intent for Human Sexuality. The goal of God is for men to be conquerors in the divine romance.
Immerse: Exploring the Biblical Truths to impart the power (grace) of God in a world that has made sexual sin normal.
I will be one of several speakers this year’s Men Rewired Conference. I look forward to sharing these four truth tracks: Identify, Immerse, Share and Endure. These tracks will empower us in overcoming common struggles and enduring as men of integrity in our sexuality.
The conference takes place in southern Oklahoma in the beautiful Arbuckle Mountains at the Falls Creek Baptist Conference Centers. (Here is my complete Handout for ALL four Tracks).
MAN TALK from Men’s Rewired 2015
I am attending, participating and serving at this years’ conference! I am very excited to be apart of a wonderful team of speakers, ministers, and professionals. I am equally exciting to see God moving in all of our hearts as we hunger for MORE of Jesus Christ and the power of His Spirit to give us grace and freedom to overcome our struggles and our griefs.
“Father, help us who minister to be ONE in Your Spirit and cultivate a desire to fulfill Jesus’ prayer in John 17 in the entire Church! Father make us ONE in holiness, truth, grace and mercy for Jesus’ sake! Amen!”
“Exodus International comforts the hurting, strengthens the weak, and encourages those who are struggling. Without judgmental-ness or self-righteousness, they love sinners to the Cross and just give them Jesus.” ~ Anne Graham Lotz

I have been to over a dozen of these conferences over the last 18 years. I thoroughly enjoy being with hundreds of people from a common background – relational and sexual brokenness; many desiring understanding and freedom from homosexuality. The power felt in the auditorium of hundreds of people of weakness worshiping God and reaching out to Him for help is an amazing experience I wished everyone I know could experience. The worship experience alone is worth coming to an Exodus conference; as you will experience God in the power of the Holy Spirit during those times. The teachings are also a wonderful time of equipping. You will also experience encouragement in the fellowship of people from around the world. This is a top notch conference, and is life changing for those who desire freedom.
I have personally been on my own journey of freedom from homosexuality now for over 26 years; and this conference is one of the most amazing experiences of hope and encouragement a person can have in overcoming homosexuality. I want to personally invite you to attend this conference if at all possible. You will not regret it. I am also plan on teaching at this conference this year.
A word about this location: Wheaton College Campus is an amazing place to have a conference. There are several beautiful things to see right there on their campus; The Billy Graham Center, The C.S. Lewis Library and you are only 30 minutes from Chicago. I also want you to know that the cafeteria at this campus is one of the best in the country. Please make your plans now! Sincerely in HIS love and service, Stephen Black, Executive Director, First Stone Ministries.
