Man Up 2016 (Oct. 7-9)


Man Up is for every man, in every walk of life. Last year hundreds of men spent the weekend competing in the Man-Up-A-Thon, worshiping, eating great food, and much more. If you've never joined us for this life-changing weekend make sure to sign up! If you've been a part of Man Up in years past, grab a friend who needs to be there.

This year's theme is “Brave.” What do you think about when you hear that word? Courage, fearlessness, Chuck Norris, fire fighters….? All of us have different thoughts and ideas when it comes to the word brave, however the world's version and the Bible's description of brave are different. This year at Man Up we will be looking at several characters in the Bible to help us discover what really makes a man BRAVE. Here's a hint…its totally different then what you think.

Jamie Winship


After five years in law enforcement, Jamie was contacted by the CIA to work in the Muslim world, because he had been effective in using his faith to solve criminal cases and to bridge the gap with marginalized communities. Responding to God's call on his life to work within the Muslim world, Jamie spent the next 25 years in some of the most difficult places including Indonesia, Iraq, Jordan and Israel/Palestine.

While serving in Iraq shortly after the U.S. forces controlled Baghdad, Jamie and his team faced incredible pressure and loss, but God used his experience there to draw thousands of Muslims into the Kingdom. Today, Jamie is using his experiences of hearing from God and sharing his faith with people from American boardrooms to some of the world's most restricted countries.
