Men's Ministry

The Main Event Simulcast

The 2014 line-up is an amazing mix of leaders, soldiers, coaches, athletes, performers . . . men who have reached extraordinary levels of achievement, who all understand that the glory and recognition ultimately goes to the One who truly deserves it — Jesus Christ. We will honor and celebrate Him, as well as the soldiers who have suffered for this country, and everyday men who are fighting battles of their own.  Come to be inspired, to be challenged, to be changed.
