Kingdom Men Rising Movie

Kingdom Men Rising Movie

Word Men will be going to the Malco Hollywood Cinema to watch Kingdom Men Rising on April 30 at 7pm.



 
 

About the Movie:

Kingdom Men Rising is a documentary film exploring what it means to be a real man in the midst of cultural trends in which there is confusion about masculinity. The film wrestles honestly with the unique questions and circumstances men face today. Kingdom Men Rising takes a journey that challenges men to rise above what we have become to lives of no more sitting on the sidelines, no more passivity, and no more excuses.

This film draws from the experiences of author, pastor and speaker Dr. Tony Evans to provide clarity on this topic. Matters of significance, priorities, race and passivity are addressed from a biblical perspective. Featuring Grammy-award winning entertainer Kirk Franklin, Heisman trophy winner Tim Brown, former Dallas Cowboy quarterback Jon Kitna, Super Bowl winning coach Tony Dungy, NFL vice president Troy Vincent, author Priscilla Shirer, and others, Kingdom Men Rising provides an honest portrayal of today’s man that is countered by God’s original design.

Japan

Quick Facts

Takasaki, Japan: 450,000 people including surrounding areas. Takasaki is famous for its giant Buddhist statue of Kannon (Buddhist goddess of mercy) and is also famous as the hometown of Daruma dolls, which are Buddhist ‘good luck’ charms. Takasaki is about 75 miles from Tokyo but has a much slower pace of life and is actually regarded as rural by Japanese standards.

% of Evangelical Believers: 0.58%

Primary Religious Views: Most Japanese individuals are either Buddhist or Shinto, while many mix the practices of the two together. Christians represent a very small slice of the population, and available statistics on the number often include cults and non-evangelic groups.

Japan does not require a visa but you will need a passport

Work while there: Working with local missionaries on college campuses and around the city; English outreaches – sharing testimonies; assisting local churches, opportunities for sports ministry.

International Student Prayer/Interest Meeting
Feb
24
1:00 PM13:00

International Student Prayer/Interest Meeting

Arkansas State University has over 650 International Students enrolled from over 50 different countries. Many of these countries have limited or no access to the gospel.  
These students often find it difficult to build meaningful relationships with American students and families.
The goal of our International Student Ministry is to connect with these students so that we can help connect them to the church, by sharing the gospel and building relationships with them.
We can build relationships with these students through several different events; weekly English conversation practice groups, international student move-in and cook-out, sporting events, or having students over for dinner.

If you’re interested in being a part of the International Student Ministry, or learning more, please join us for our International Student Prayer/Interest Meeting on February 24th at 1pm. The meeting will last 30 minutes and will give you all the info you’ll need to get involved.
