Faithful Men Prayer Advance

Our 2019 Men’s Prayer Advance is 14th – 16th of November. The gates will open at noon. Our main speaker this year is Evangelist Tim Schmidt. Bro  Schmidt is a native of Sacramento, California.  Tim was saved at a young age, and trained for ministry at Ambassador Baptist College.  Tim met his wife, Megan, at Ambassador.  After completing his ministry training, Tim served on the pastoral staff of Fundamental Baptist Church in Escondido, CA.  In 2007, God opened the door for Tim and Megan to begin a ministry of evangelism under the direction of  Pastor Mike Rodgers of Faith Baptist Tabernacle in North Highlands, CA.  

Each year Bro Schmidt hosts a Men’s Meeting in Northern California. Men come from across the region and beyond to be challenged and strengthened by the music and preaching of God’s Word.


Evangelist Tim Schmidt and his wife, Megan.


This year’s meeting begins on Thursday at noon, giving us two days of fellowship and preaching from God’s Word.  While having a focus on prayer, there will be plenty of time for fun and fellowship for father’s-sons and brothers in Christ.  There is no age limit on boys, but fathers / guardians will be responsible for their sons during services.   Over 12 hours will be dedicated to time for fun and fellowship.  The time will be spread over both days giving those driving long distances the opportunity to enjoy great fellowship on Friday as well.  Things to do include, fishing, kayaking, hiking, golf, table games and more.
