ARLINGTON — Promise Keepers (PK), a Christ-centered ministry dedicated to uniting men through vital relationships to become godly influences in their homes, churches, workplaces and communities, today announced its speaker lineup for Promise Keepers 2020.
The event will bring together 80,000 men at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, July 31-August 1, 2020. World-class speakers, Bible teachers and musicians will guide attendees to the Word of God and biblical manhood with messages focusing on the PK Seven Promises of Honor, Brotherhood, Virtue, Commitment, Changemaking, Unity and Obedience, which have been foundational to the movement since its founding in 1990.

“We’re honored that these men will join us in leading the new intergenerational audience of Promise Keepers into a deeper understanding of what it means to be a man of God,” stated PK CEO and Board Chair Ken Harrison. “The seven principles upon which our speakers will base their messages are the same that sparked a transformational movement in the hearts of millions of men more than two decades ago, resulting in countless changed lives. It’s our earnest desire to instill those same values into the Promise Keepers of today, to ensure authenticity, relevance and maturation while meeting the urgent and overwhelming felt needs of men today.”
Promise Keepers 2020 will encourage, equip and empower men from all walks of life to stand strong as better husbands, fathers and workers in their God-given roles as leaders.
Additionally, the brand identity of the new PK in the Digital Age goes beyond the stadium event for which it has always been known. The movement will leave a lasting legacy in each host city and leverage a robust, interactive app designed to form four-man “fire teams” in every church in the nation and provide discipleship resources for men to go deeper into community and their spiritual journeys together.
“Manhood is a difficult journey, and it was never meant to be walked alone,” said PK President Vance Day. “Our goal is to establish a Christ-centered band of brothers in every church who can encourage and equip one another to function as ambassadors of reconciliation and service as a result of an authentic encounter with Jesus.”
