NCMM Reload ’13

On September 16-18 several hundred men who invest their lives in discipling other men will gather in Washington, DC for the  National Coalition of Ministries to Men Annual Conference. I attended my first NCMM event in the fall of 2004. Noble Warriors was not even a thought for me – I just knew I needed to be there. I found clarity for my ministry call among the men of NCMM. About 6 months later, Noble Warriors was launched.

I continue to delight in the encouragement, challenges, and fellowship at these gatherings. Check out the lineup of Keynote Speakers for this year’s event:

  • Barry Black – Chaplain for US Senate

  • Pastor Rod Hairston – Chaplain Baltimore Ravens
