The 2020 SOLA Men's Conference is set for March 13-14 at FBC Houma. Once again, we will enjoy a wonderful time of guest speakers, men's fellowship, faith, music, and of course, great food. The theme for this year's conference is Come To The Table.
Veterans of our SOLA Men's Conferences know that our tables are filled with piles of shrimp and "bow-tie-alaya!" Just as you're always invited to sit down and have a good ole' South Louisiana shrimp boil down here in Houma, Jesus invites us to sit with him at his table. We'll learn more about what that means at this year's conference.

The Genesis Flood: Biblical Realism and Scientific Models
Friday, March 13
The Flood during Noah's day is vital to understand the history of our planet. This talk explains why in detail, and answers many common questions. For example: Does the Bible teach a global or local Flood? How does science fit in? What models are right, and what should be rejected? What are the main evidences in the rocks and fossils that the globe was totally covered? Why did lifespans drop sharply after the Flood?
Bioethics: Issues of Life, Death, and Mortality
Saturday, March 14 (1st session)
The right view of Genesis Creation enables us to think clearly about ‘life’ issues such as abortion, euthanasia, cloning, animal rights, stem cells, etc. Conversely, consistent evolutionary thinking undermines the biblical sanctity of innocent human life, as in Nazi Germany.
Is Genesis a Literal History? Refuting Compromise from the Scripture
Saturday, March 14 (2nd session)
A six day, young earth understanding of Genesis is the only one that comes from the text itself, which is why the rest of Scripture interprets it that way. Long-age views are a modern aberration that comes from imposing outside ideas of uniformitarian “science” upon the text. See how compromising views render the Bible meaningless to a dying world. You’ll be encouraged and energized to hear there is no need for compromise and that there are answers. The evidence for Creation and the Bible’s account of history is all around us if only we know how to look for it, and Jonathan will show you how to do just that!

Sitting at the Table with Jesus Without Saying a Word
Friday, March 13
It’s a fact that what we do in private with God will determine what we do in public for God. What we do in privacy with God will affect every area of our life. It is in our private time with God that we learn to fall in love with God instead of falling prey to the enemy. It’s in our private life with God that we can meet Him at the table without saying a word. This breakout is designed to help you understand how to make time for God during your day, how to have a quiet time, and where to begin in the Bible.
Hold On. God Has Called Me to Do What as a Dad?
Saturday, March 14 (both sessions)
This breakout is for any dads who have any children at the house under the age of 19. God has placed a major calling on all dads, but what if we aren’t answering that call or are misunderstanding the call? Do you know what call I am talking about? It’s the call to lead your family by creating the atmosphere at home that makes time for discipleship and allows you to teach your children how to become more like Christ. This breakout will not only affect you, but it will affect your entire household.
