Promise Keepers will stage PKAdventures LIVE
Media Advisory-- Promise Keepers, the international ministry to men, presents its second cinema and community service event, PKAdventure, in 15 cities on Saturday morning, April 12, 2008. In this second edition of PKAdventure, thousands of men will be mobilized to gather locally for a video event, then impact their communities through community service. The program will be distributed live in four time zones through a national digital theater network and church satellite network.
The event begins at 8:00 a.m. local time with a 90- minute digital cinema production featuring Dr. Del Tackett from Focus on the Family's Truth Project, the dramatic story of six men trying to sustain a men's Bible study, actor Alan Autry (TV's "In the Heat of the Night," "The Legend of Jake Kincaid"), and big screen worship with PK7. The emcee is Pastor Matt Uldrich of Tucson, Ariz.
Following the digital video, teams of men will disperse to a wide variety of community service projects. Efforts around the nation include building a youth camp, a barn-raising, park clean up, community barbecues and block parties, house painting and building renovation, food drives, blood drives, clothing drives, and more.
"Promise Keepers helps men connect with God and each other, whether we're in theaters, arenas, at work, at home, at play or at church." said Dr. Tom Fortson, president and CEO of Promise Keepers. "We've got a creative presentation on the foundational truths of Christianity that men can relate to, without being trite, and without easy answers. Further, men always grow in faith when they help others in the community."

Promise Keepers: conference and content
Later this year, Promise Keepers is hosting two-day men's conferences in eight cities nationwide. Titled "Manhood 2008: Let the Truth Be Told," the conferences will tackle absolute truth, sexual freedom, priorities, community influence and more. Promise Keepers has directly reached millions of men since its founding in late 1990. Through arena conferences, audience-specific events, its website, and multi-media resources, Promise Keepers encourages and equips men to fulfill their calling and demonstrate their integrity. The organization's mission is to ignite and unite men to make them passionate followers of Jesus Christ. Promise Keepers' vision is "Men Transformed Worldwide."
