BobbyBowden-FB-webLifeWay’s Conference for Men known as “The Main Event” will be held Aug. 1-2 at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. At the gathering, 10,000 men from around the nation are expected attend to hear from top speakers, including the authors of The Race, NASCAR legend Darrell Waltrip, Billy Mauldin and Kyle Froman; and the author of The Two Minute Drill to Manhood and Raising a Princess, John Croyle. Former President George W. Bush also will make an appearance at the event, according to the LifeWay website.

Bobby Bowden, who is launching his new book sharing the story of his faith called The Wisdom of Faith, and his son Tommy Bowden, author of Winning Character, are also scheduled to speak. Other speakers include Matt Carter, Derwin Gray and Major Jeff Streucker (best known from the 1993 conflict in Somalia, commonly referred to as Black Hawk Down).

LifeWay President Thom Rainer will feature a special guest that will speak about his faith, leadership and Wounded Warriors, and worship will be led by Michael W. Smith.

There also will be an event exclusive for pastors Friday afternoon. Over 300 pastors will be in attendance and will receive copies of Manhood Restored by Eric Mason, Resolution for Men and the Men’s Fraternity Bible from B&H Publishing Group. 

On Saturday, attendees will have the opportunity to meet the speakers. Each B&H author will be signing their respective book.
