From the above pics, I think this event completed its mission of connecting fathers and daughters in a memorable way! Thank you for attending and praying for this event! Remember, this doesn't happen without partner churches and businesses as good as these—to name a few:

Theme: Boiling Point
Keynote Speaker 2019: Kent Evans

There are so many pressures bringing men to their boiling point but God has provided resources to guide and direct this volatile emotion to a place that honors Him. Uncover the expectations (some valid, some not, some downright unfair) that lead to frustration and anger. Kent will dig into James 4 and teach guys how to tame this charged emotion.
