Men to Again 'Stand in the Gap' in D.C.

Ten years after the history-making Promise Keepers event drew more than 1 million men to the nation's capitol, men are again being summoned to Washington, D.C., for Stand in the Gap 2007 this Saturday, Oct. 6.

Organizers are preparing for 250,000 men to convene on the lawn of the Washington Monument for the gathering, which is being hosted by the National Coalition of Men's Ministries, a network of more than 80 Christian men's organizations. Featured speakers include Joseph Garlington, David Jeremiah, Samuel Rodriguez Jr. and Erwin McManus.

“We are urging men to return, remember, renew and rebuild their commitment to God, their families, churches, neighborhoods, communities and the nation,” said Marty Granger, chairman and executive director of the event.

Stand in the Gap participants will be challenged to leave a legacy of spiritual strength to the next generation and like the original event, which draws its name from Ezekiel 22:30, it will call men to accountability.

“Men today tend to be isolated,” said National Coalition of Men's Ministries President Rick Kingham. “If you can get them together to stand for God, it's a grand success.”
