Churches, colleges and high schools often celebrate ‘Homecoming’ in the Fall.
We’re planning a Homecoming of our own! Noble Warrior has never hosted conferences in Tidewater. For a number of years, a partner ministry, The Gathering of Men, has hosted Iron Sharpens Iron conferences in the region. Last fall, The Gathering of Men invited Noble Warriors to begin serving churches in Tidewater.
I’m excited for this ‘Homecoming’ of sorts. I was born and raised in Suffolk… part of the Tidewater region. My dad worked in the ship yards, I attended William and Mary.
With many connections and much history in the region, hosting a Noble Man Conference in Tidewater will be a Homecoming event!
I’m looking forward to re-connecting with some friends and churches in the area!
Norfolk Naval Air Station is the world’s largest naval installment. Capt. (Ret.) Tom Joyce will be one of our keynote speakers for the October 13th event.
While I don’t think Capt. Joyce was ever stationed in Norfolk, he’s a former Navy pilot who will feel right at home with the Tidewater crowd!
(Tom was at the Top Gun school while the movie was being filmed and even flew some of the scenes in the film!) Tom finished his Naval career at The Pentagon and now serves as the Pastor of Discipleship, Family and Next Generation at Immanuel Bible Church in Springfield VA.
Tom served our country with honor but more importantly, he and his wife serve King Jesus as a priority. I love the fact that he and Deshua invested in and ministered to other Navy personnel and their families during his career.
Hundreds of men will be blessed, challenged and encouraged by Tom’s message next month in Yorktown.
- Pray with us that many men will have a ‘Homecoming’ experience with Christ on October 13th!
- Pray also that every man will go home that night having been impacted by their time with Jesus and other godly men. Those are the best homecomings!
