Catholics, and Protestants come together to host conference on purity in Kansas City.
The 11th Men of Valor, Women of Virtue Conference, Living a Pure Life in an Impure World, will bring in national speakers to reach Christians of all backgrounds who are seeking lives of integrity for themselves and their children.
The conference will take place Saturday, April 1, at St. Thomas More Church, 11822 Holmes Rd, Kansas City, Mo., from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm, and will feature six breakout sessions with twelve national experts on the topic of Christian purity. Online registration is $29 per individual and $49 per couple (ministers and clergy are free) at www.kcvalor.com.
A powerful lineup of essential topics for both men’s and women’s breakout sessions will include discussion on protecting kids in today’s world, pro-active parenting, and connective intimacy between spouses. “The goal of this conference is to support Christians as they seek to live as faithful disciples of Jesus Christ. In our world that is so saturated with impure images and entertainment it is a challenging time to be faithful to the gospel message. We think part of the solution is for Christians to stand together to support one another” says Dino Durando, Director of the Family Life Office for the Diocese of Kansas City- St. Joseph and co-leader of the Valor and Virtue Conference.
Speakers include nationally acclaimed author, Jennie Bishop. Bishop decided to write the children’s book The Princess and the Kiss after her daughter came home from kindergarten with a surprising declaration: “Mom, all my girlfriends have boyfriends!” Bishop recognized the need to encourage children at a young age to preserve and protect their purity. Her books have sold over a half million copies, ( www.purityworks.org ).
Another popular speaker is Rev. Sean Kilcawley, a graduate of West Point and retired infantry officer. He currently serves as the Director of the Office of Family Life for the Diocese of Lincoln, Neb. as well as Program Director for Integrity Restored, a national ministry dedicated to education, training, and resources to break free from pornography and heal relationships (www.integrityrestored.com ).
