A common request Promise Keepers receives is “who can we get to speak at our men’s event?” For small or remote groups especially, the costs can be prohibitive.
To help churches, PK has organised some fantastic speakers in 2017 who can be accessed from anywhere via Livestream.
Your church can now have an international speaker at your men’s breakfast! You can ask questions at the live Q&A at the end of the message. And it’s all free!
David Dusek’s mission is to encourage and equip men to live their lives for Christ. He utilises his life experiences – including his non-Christian upbringing, coming to Christ as an adult, and extensive business background – to reach men in a way they can understand. David's vision is to engage all men where they are the "other six days of the week" - not just in church.
David is the founder of Rough Cut Men Ministries, which is primarily a live, interactive men’s experience using a strategic combination of action movie sequences, real world current events, biblical truth and fireteam-sized discussion times with a single, laser-focused objective: To get men talking about what’s really going on in their lives.
He has presented Rough Cut Men at numerous Army installations in the US, Germany and Korea, as well as at over 1000 men's gatherings. David also works closely with dozens of Teen Challenge Men's Centers across the United States and Australia. He is the author of the Amazon #1 best-selling Rough Cut Men: A Man’s Battle Guide to Building Relationships with Each Other and with Jesus.
A native of Florida, David resides in Sarasota with his wife, and has five children. In his free time, he loves dates with his wife, writing, and is a voracious reader. He is also a diehard fan of Florida Gator football.

Livestream Men's Breakfast with David Dusek - 27 May
Most men have many acquaintances, but no real friends. Because they don’t particularly trust anyone, they are isolated. John 10:10 says our enemy “comes only to steal and kill and destroy”. His strategy is to isolate God’s soldiers and pick off the leaders.
In real-life, an army of tens of thousands is divided up from Divisions, Brigades and so on, ultimately into a core Fireteam of four soldiers. Each man on the Fireteam looks out for one another.
The battle is won at the Fireteam level. It’s all about the brotherhood that’s formed when a team gears up and heads outside the wire: it’s just four men together against the enemy.
Most guys are in the middle of battles that no one knows about. We only trust other men when we spend time together, when we know they have our back and we have theirs. That’s why we need to build “Fireteams” with a few other Christian men.
The war is always raging at our doorstep, and every man needs a battle brother for the fight.
We have known David Dusek for several years and watched his ministry Rough Cut Men explode in size, especially his reach into the US Military. David uses a lot of examples of manhood and character from movies (“rough cut” is a film editing term).
This topic of building a team of men around you who you can rely on (in military terms, trust your life with) zeroes in on men’s real need – genuine friends who have your back spiritually. It will be an excellent opportunity to lead into Men’s Groups at the conclusion of the breakfast.
