2019 Men's Summit

  • Mo-Ranch Conference Center 2229 FM 1340 Hunt, TX, 78024 (map)

You were designed for a purpose

FEB 22–24, 2019 | Mo-Ranch, Hunt Tx

The Men’s Summit is for YOU!  It is a weekend built for guys to unplug from their daily responsibilities in order to connect with God and other men.  When you take the time to do this you will find that God really does show up!

Join us for the weekend at Mo-Ranch Christian Conference Center.




This is not one more thing to “do”. This is a time to “be”. To be with other men. To be encouraged and refreshed. To be blessed. I hope you will join me and the other men and come to our 2019 Men’s Summit. I promise you an opportunity to find “more”!


Featured Speaker: Dan Lance


Dan’s an entrepreneur, a restaurant owner, and a pastor. He currently owns two restaurants in Longmont, Colorado (outside Boulder), that helps to fund their non-profit called The Rooster Party – an organization that helps couples with the high cost of funding adoptions. 

Dan will help us learn about the specific purpose that God has designed each of us for at this stage of our lives. Not only will we be challenged, but we’ll get to wrestle with this topic with the men at our table groups after each session! 

Dan was born and raised in Riverside, CA. He has been married to his wife Alyssa for 20 years and they have 3 kids: Ezekiel – 15, Sofia – 12, and Moses – 10. He’s been a church planter, lead pastor, worship leader, and executive pastor for fourteen years at two different churches in California. He’s also a close friend of our Outreach Pastor, Aaron Foor.

After opening their non-profit, in 2013 Dan and Alyssa moved to Colorado where they opened two restaurants. Dan is currently an elder at Cornerstone Church in Boulder, CO, where he also serves as a worship leader and leads their men’s ministry. He believes in saying YES to Jesus and living a life of risk.

Special Guest: Tom Landis

On Saturday afternoon, Tom Landis will share an amazing story. Tom is the founder of Howdy Homemade, the first for-profit restaurant that employs people with special needs. While opening 13 restaurants over past two decades, Tom leads by prioritizing God, family, the other employees, customers and self. 

He’s received many honors, including the Ryan Albers’ Lifetime Achievement Award, The Governor of Texas’ Lex Friedan Award for Best Small Business, The Social Entrepreneur of the Year Award, and his first franchise won Best Ice Cream in the State of Utah for 2018.  

He currently has more than 50 people that want to franchise, and has an exclusive partnership with Dr Pepper to make and produce Dr Pepper flavored ice cream. Tom believes the best way to know business is to know people … the best way to know people is the Bible … and the best way to know the Bible is DTS. Which is sort of weird because he only went there for a semester and was drunk before, during and after most classes. 

Landis was led to Jesus by Dr. Haney, and Jesus helped Landis with alcoholism and so many other issues. Landis lives in Dallas with his wife and two kids, but wishes he lived in Austin.

Worship Leader: Casey McPherson


One of Austin’s most accomplished singer songwriters, he and his band Alpha Rev have toured extensively through the US and internationally. A recovering alcoholic and drug addict, Casey has a remarkable story of Christ’s intervention in his life through the music ministry of Riverbend Church. Casey is the worship leader at Riverbend for the Resonate service, lives in Austin, and is the proud father of two young girls.

Casey believes that God shows up when we get together to worship Him. So the band encourages the men to come with some expectation! He and his band will lead them in times of worship throughout the weekend, helping set the table for the men to encounter the living God, providing a platform to hear what He might say to them.
