Jakes’ annual ManPower Conference (www.manpowerconference.org).

This year’s ManPower Conference theme, “Where Men Talk,” will feature eminent speakers, such as Bishop T.D. Jakes and other renowned guests as Pastor Marvin Sapp, Reverend Samuel Rodriguez, Bishop Michael Pitts and Pastor Donnie McClurkin to name a few, who will share a plethora of inspirational messages to equip and encourage men to be their best selves. On Saturday, August 11, 2012 from 8:30 – 10am, Mr. Braswell will moderate the conference’s culminating panel, REALTALK: REBUILDING Men Rebuilding Their Lives and Overcoming Adversity – Real conversations from men who have struggled, succumbed and faced adversity head on; but through their faith and love of God, have weathered the storms and challenges to become better men, fathers and husbands. Panelists will include: Multi-Grammy winning, multi-platinum Gospel and Contemporary music Performer, Director and Author, Kirk Franklin; Author, Educator and Public Speaker, Kwame Kilpatrick; and Award-winning Gospel vocal powerhouse and world-renowned Playwright, Wess Morgan.

“We understand that men are not without the critical need to heal,” states Mr. Braswell. “ManPower extends a powerful opportunity to restore healthy families and affords us the ability to bridge the gap in providing responsible fatherhood services to men of faith. If we are to build healthy families, working with men must also be a priority.”

In addition to the panel, Mr. Braswell and Bishop Jakes will officiate the Ties Never Broken(TM) Blue Bowtie pinning ceremony, a rite of passage signifying the bond between fathers never loosing ties with their children.
