A Call to Arms conference for the men of Chautauqua County is scheduled for Sept. 8 at the East Town of Dunkirk Fire Hall, South Roberts Road, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Conference coordinator Rick Till explained the purpose of the gathering is to awaken the men of the local area.
"God has called men to a place of responsibility, to spiritually guide their wives and children, to be the spiritual leader of the family in its Godly order," Till said.
"Our churches have compromised the orderly word of God and our families and society have suffered," he continued. "God is a Loving God of order. There is absolute truth, a right and wrong, and there are destructive consequences due to God's order being rejected and ignored.
"Our churches are filled with women who are struggling to fill the role of Godly men who are missing in action. We hope that through this conference, men will be encouraged to take the position of a Christ-centered husband and father that God created them to be."
Speakers for this event are Till, Dave Gould, Chris Ray, Pastor John Duenas, Steve Glasier, and Pastor Mark Samworth, all of Fredonia. Speakers from Jamestown and Westfield are respectively Roy Miller and Pastor Vinnie Sanzo.
