Dr. Joe Martin – Men’s Conference Topics/Programs
Keynote or Seminar Session: Going from Good Man to Godly Man
Focus: Joe’s Testimony (Men Restoration and Healing)
The only thing worse than failing as a man, is succeeding as a “good man” and never becoming a godly man. In this heartfelt, transparent, authentic, raw address, Dr. Joe Martin unashamedly shares his journey from abject poverty, abuse, and abandonment to achievement and success – which eventually led him to adultery and addiction that ended his 16-year marriage; but Joe also shares the strategy a “Paul” used to personally disciple him that helped him become a godly man after he almost destroyed his life.
Seminar Session: Being Your Brother’s Keeper
Focus: Men’s Discipleship/Mentoring
In Matt 28:10, Jesus says, “Go make disciples of all nations…” We know this as the “great commission,” but what do you do if you’re shy, “socially-challenged,” introverted, and you don’t know where to start or how to make a disciple? In this session, Dr. Joe Martin teaches men four (4) simple, but proven steps any Christian man can take to start the process of mentoring and discipling men. Every man will walk away saying, “Even I can do this.” Yes, even “that” guy.
Seminar Session: The Spiritual Leader Blueprint
Focus: Spiritual Leadership
Every born-again Christian man has a desire to be the priest, prophet, protector, and provider for his household, but unfortunately, most men were never shown how to be either. If only there was a blueprint or instructional manual a man could follow. Where now there is, because in this session, Dr. Joe Martin will teach men 21 practical ways to spiritually lead and love their family…God’s way. Joe covers as many of the tips as the time permits, but he gives a way a free copy of his book to every man who attends.
Seminar: The T-R-A-I-T-S of Real Men
Focus: Men’s Character
Think you’re a real man? You might want to think again after Dr. Joe Martin outlines the six (6) character traits of a “Real Man.” As he reveals each trait, he will challenge you on your thoughts, feelings, and actions about what a “real man” looks like, in God’s eyes. Get ready, because you will never look at manhood the same way again, and each man will walk away equipped to be better than he was when he arrived.
