Cornerstone Church kicked off Father's Day weekend with an event for every man.

The church hosted a men's breakfast in the Impact Center, inviting men of all ages to come and engage in a faith and family forward morning. They hope that the men will leave the breakfast with a sense of empowerment to be a faithful influence not in not just the family but the community as well.

"Our children need mentors," says Pastor David Roberts. "Our children need fathers, and that's why we're really trying to make this something that really touches every man, where everyone can be able to feel comfortable, accepted, empowered."

To the guest speaker, former linebacker Akin Ayodele, this subject is one he is very familiar with. Having never met his own father, he was lucky enough to have other men putting a positive influence over him and says those relationships made him the man he is today.

"Whether you're a boy or a girl, I think it's important to have a male figure in your life because there's so many examples and attributes of life that you need to see somebody go through," says Ayodele. "I really never met my father but I've had people and men have come into my life that have been a huge impact on my character, the person I am right now."

The weekend event will continue on Sunday with a special Father's Day service, attended by Ayodele.
