The deadline for ordering discounted tickets to a men's Christian ministry stadium event that is coming to Iowa is almost here.
Promise Keepers, the men's Christian group founded by former University of Colorado Football Coach Bill McCartney, is holding one of only six nationwide events July 19-20 in Cedar Falls at the UNI-Dome. Organizers estimate 15,000 men will attend from all over the Midwest.
Deadline for ordering tickets is June 20.
Tickets can be ordered locally for only $49 through local organizers Duane Meyer at 641-753-8271 or Al Brennecke at 641-750-0246. Because of the local group's buying volume, this is a savings of $20 per ticket from ordering individually through Promise Keepers online.
Promise Keepers held one of its events last year in Cedar Falls at the McLeod Center and due to the overwhelming commitment by the men attending last year to fill the UNI-Dome if Promise Keepers came back, officials decided to return this year. Cedar Falls is the only one of the six sites for Promise Keeper events in 2013 to be a repeat site from the prior year.
The two-day event will be highlighted by an appearance of McCartney who is scheduled as one of the event's speakers. In addition to McCartney, speakers include: Lincoln Brewster, Mike Silva, Mike Gungor, Raleigh Washington, Larry Acosta, Larry Jackson, Ed Barron, the One Body band and Nic Gonzales.
The event starts Friday evening, from 6:30 pm to 9 p.m. July 19. The event is from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and lunch is included with the ticket for the Saturday session.
