Purpose 150: Promise Keepers is Back with Ken Harrison
What does it mean to be a man in today’s world? Today’s guest has a lot to say on the topic, and he’s written a new book, Rise of the Servant Kings: What the Bible Says About Being a Man. The book is a guide to discipleship for men, but even women are raving about the chapter dedicated to marriage. Ken Harrison is Chairman of the Board of Promise Keepers, a Christ-centered organization dedicated to instilling in men a passion for hearing, obeying, and daily meditating on the Word of God. Over 7 million men have had their lives impacted by Promise Keepers since 1990. Ken also serves as CEO at WaterStone, an organization that helps clients give away millions of dollars annually in support of Christian worldwide humanitarian efforts. Being a former LAPD officer in a high-crime area taught Ken to live life in the moment because it’s uncertain and unpredictable. When he retired from the police force, he prayed for God to give him business wisdom for his path ahead—and He did. Ken credits the goodness of God in directing his steps, instilling passion and purpose in his life, and giving him the courage to stand up as a man of God. Ken’s parting advice is, “God is looking for people of courage, and the world is full of wimps. Don’t be a chocolate soldier who melts when the heat is on.”
