Promise Keepers returns to its roots to reach a new generation for Jesus

Many Americans want to learn how to stop college students from joining the ongoing anti-Israel protests. The new leader of Promise Keepers believes that by returning the ministry to its roots, they can once again reach young men in large numbers.

Recently, thousands of students have demonstrated in pro-Palestinian protests across the country, many of which have become vehicles for hate and anti-Semitism.

“What we are seeing is a generation of people being shaped and shaped by the world based on the things they see on social media,” said Shane Winnings, CEO of Promise Keepers.

“And so you see these secular examples of people rising up and demonstrating secular masculinity that is perverted in many ways and is more about domination and less about, you know, godly qualities,” he said.

Evangelist Winnings, a former police officer, now leads the ministry founded by former University of Colorado coach Bill McCartney. Now in its thirty-fourth year, Promise Keepers seeks to transform people through faith in Jesus Christ.

So how can young men become men of courage and integrity, especially if they were not taught respect and integrity at home?

Winnings said it takes commitment. “We must be the voice of this movement, the movement of integrity and purity and divine truths, and also be an example.”

He believes today's young men need role models, which he found in Jesus and through his service in Afghanistan with the U.S. Army Special Forces.

“Being around great people makes you want to be great. And you know, at this level, mistakes can cost lives,” Winnings explained. “The sobering reality that life is short. It's a breath of steam, the Bible says tomorrow is not promised. And what really drives me in leading this organization is the fact that we can't count on tomorrow. We must make a difference men of our nation and our world today.”

One way Winnings Promise Keepers is moving forward is by returning to a winning formula from the past.

“Promise Keepers is well known and recognized for its major men’s conferences as well as stadiums and arenas across the country. And in this sense we are returning to our roots,” he emphasized.

A conference with Charlie Kirk of Turning Point USA is planned for this summer in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Does this mean Promise Keepers is getting a little more political?

“Absolutely not,” Winnings said. “We have provided platforms for athletes and people from so many different spheres of influence. …I believe that Charlie has been extremely effective in reaching this generation with the truth. He is a Bible-believing Christian and is reaching this generation in a way that many people don't.

Winnings believes Promise Keepers can continue this legacy by reaching this new generation for Jesus Christ.
