Join Urban Impact, in partnership with Forest Hill Church, the YMCA of Greater Charlotte, and The Park Church for an encouraging day of worship, prayer, dynamic breakout sessions and powerful messages during the first ManUp Charlotte: Maximize Your Impact conference on June 2 at Forest Hill Church.
Recommended for ages 15 and up, it's inspired by a widely known report that ranked Charlotte dead last in upward economic mobility out of the 50 largest U.S. cities. The study showed that family structure is one of the highest predictors of economic mobility - and 35% of Charlotte households with children are single parent households.
The conference's organizers believe the best way to make a positive change in the upward mobility crisis is by engaging fatherlessness through showing men the great need for them to lead, love and serve their families.
Featured speakers are Carolina Panther Thomas Davis; Miles McPherson of The Rock Church; Panthers Broadcaster Eugene Robinson; Urban Impact's Ed Glover; and Bryce Johnson of UNPACKIN' It Ministries.
The conference is June 2 at Forest Hill Church, SouthPark campus, 7224 Park Road. Check-in and a complimentary breakfast is at 7:30 a.m.; the conference begins at 8:30 a.m. and ends at 3:30 pm. The cost is $49 (includes breakfast and lunch). To register, click here.
