Atlanta-based Third Day recently celebrated another career milestone as it registered its 23rd No. 1 radio hit "Mountain of God" from its RIAA certified Gold album Wherever You Are. Over the past decade the band has sold 6 million albums while garnering numerous Gold records, 24 Dove Awards, two GRAMMY Awards, two consecutive American Music Awards, and multiple other honors. Recently nominated for two more GRAMMYS, Third Day has maintained a touring record second-to-none rocking world-wide audiences reaching into the millions.

The High Desert Men’s Summit 2007, a non-profit faith-based regional men’s event, seeks to build better dads, husbands and leaders by focusing on issues and topics challenging men today. Featuring nationally acclaimed speakers such as evangelist Dave Roever, H. B. London from Focus on the Family, and former major league baseball star Dave Dravecky, the Summit also offers over 25 expert-led workshops on important topics ranging from “How to be a Better Dad” and “Marriage Communication Skills,” to “Managing Finances” and “Business Leadership,” to very serious issues such as “Pornography” and “Addiction.”
