Walking the Journey with Authenticity
You’ve probably seen those nailed it or fail videos where people try to copy a pro sportsperson by doing a trick shot that the sportsperson has mastered. But when a novice tries to copy them, it ends in disaster.
Have you ever struggled with pretending to be someone you aren’t and wondered what people would think if you were really you? God made you unique and your uniqueness is significant. You matter and no one else can be you. And if you try and copy someone else you aren’t being true to yourself.
In this livestream breakfast Dave Firth will discuss how we walk the journey of life with authenticity. Including encouraging you to take the brave step to be genuine and move beyond the fake you vs the real you.
Discover the vibrancy of authentic Christian living and the meaningful friendships that result when we share our stories with one another and walk the journey with authenticity.
About Authentic Magazine Editor Dave Firth ...
Originally from the UK, Dave and his wife Marsha and their three children are based in Cambridge, New Zealand where Dave is CEO of Authentic Christian Trust and editor of Authentic Men’s Magazine. Previously he spent 11 years at Capernwray New Zealand where he held the position of Communications Manager and directed the 10 week BML (Business, Ministry, Leadership) course.
Dave also worked with Torchbearers International as Communications & Development Manager for 8 years. He has visited 20 Torchbearers Centres all around the world and has taught at many. He says, “God gave me a passion for preaching and teaching against my wishes! I was the 'behind the scenes' guy, but when He planted the seed of desire to study, He nurtured it into a passion to teach.”
Dave has a deep conviction to teach Biblical truth in a bright and refreshing way. “The Bible is an incredible book, but more importantly, it’s all about Jesus from Genesis to Revelation. What else can we do with our time that is as valuable as learning from Him and His word? Not much!”

This Event costs approximately $4,000 to run. You can make a donation while registering for your ticket, or find general donation information [here]
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 for this coming year who can be accessed from anywhere via Livestream.
Your church can now have a top quality 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!
"As a pastor these events are so easy to organise and we know they are going to have great content. Really appreciate the work PK puts in to make these happen." - Anon
