Founded in 1990 by former University of Colorado football coach Bill McCartney, Promise Keepers (PK) is calling men back to courageous and bold servant leadership by sparking a movement that will mobilize millions of men to follow Christ into today’s broken world as changemakers for their families, churches and communities.
In keeping with its steadfast commitment to racial reconciliation, Promise Keepers is calling the Christian men of our nation to be a part of Promise 6 Sunday Oct. 25, 2020. The goal of this event is to energize men across the country to reach out in their communities to tear down the walls of racism, division, ignorance, and prejudice and be at the forefront of meaningful dialogue and lasting change.
From its inception, Promise Keepers has taken an unequivocal and unapologetic stand against racism and for racial reconciliation. All Promise Keepers strive to keep seven strategic promises that create the foundation of our values and how we apply the Word of God in our daily actions. Promise #6 is a solemn commitment to reach beyond any racial and denominational barriers to demonstrate the power of biblical unity.
As Christian men, it is our responsibility to respect and protect our brothers of all races.
Toward that end, Promise Keepers has created a webpagewith helpful voices from within the Promise Keepers community speaking and writing on the topic of racial reconciliation.
