What’s Stronger all about?
We believe that the Lord has put us as men here for this time and place for His perfect purpose. Many men have gone about their godly pursuits as a Lone Ranger, but that is not what the Bible commands us to do. We have strength in brotherhood, we are called to mentor (disciple) the next generation, lift up our brothers in their challenges and much more.
Stronger is a men’s conference featuring gifted/inspired speakers from different walks of life. We have multiple churches of different denominations from the area involved. With the challenges facing our families, country, community and just fulfilling our mission (making disciples of Christ) ; it is critical that the men of God be connected and take up their spiritual armor and role.
Stronger is about making stronger men, marriages, fathers and disciples of Christ.
