Bishop Speaks on “Faith in the Home: Beacon of the Light” at Fall Men’s Summit

If you haven’t heard his message yet, please take a few minutes and listen to the two talks Bishop Lawrence gave at the 2020 Men’s Summit. You can find them on The Anglican Diocese of South Carolina’s website ( under our Men’s Ministry tab.

As you will hear, the Bishop’s two teachings were grounded on Psalm 51. He was open about his reluctance to talk on Faith in the Home, but he is transparent stories he tells about his journey, reminding us that faith in the home can be a messy journey. A few takeaways: restored relationships always need to be a top family priority; lifestyle evangelism as a Christian family can have transformational outcomes on both family and non-family members; a desired faith outcome in one’s family can take years before any fruit is evident. You will be blessed by his Faith in the Home messages.

The Men’s Summit was also a very important technological breakthrough. Our leadership team successfully broadcasted our first live streaming men’s event—successfully. This was a significant communication breakthrough for us to now feel confident about providing similar events in the future.

How were we able to successfully provide this virtual event?

  • A magnificent team effort beginning with our technology guru and our producer, Alex Perri, and including Scott Myers, Bill Read, Les Sease and Tom Hample.
  • Next, thanks to Arthur Jenkins who invited us to use the St. James broadcast facility which is totally state of the art, we had the ideal platform from which to broadcast.
  • Many churches, due to the coronavirus’ curtailing in church services, have invested in technology to broadcast their services. Thus, they were in an ideal situation to receive our broadcast and host the men in their church for the Men’s Summit.
  • God’s provisions for overcoming the insurmountable.
