Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that most of the news today is not good. That’s an understatement! So, what would you say are the greatest problems in the world today? Terrorism? Promiscuity? Sex trafficking? Drug or alcohol addiction? Corrupt governments? These are all serious. But have you ever thought that maybe they are the byproduct of a bigger issue? Which is... men not being who God crafted them to be--leaders of their families, the church or society in general.
You see, when men abdicate their role as leaders, husbands and fathers, the world around them crumbles and the fabric of society with them!
Now, here’s the good news!There’s a way to begin reversing this situation. It’s called the Legacy Minded Men Conference. It’s a one-day conference happening at local churches throughout the United States on April 28, 2018. Featuring powerful speakers like Tony Evans, author of "Kingdom Man", Kenny Luck of "Every Man Ministries" and many other gifted communicators encouraging and challenging men through the word and breakout sessions.
Each host church will be provided with a conference-in-a-box kit that contains everything they need to hold the conference. It’s really very simple.
All the speakers will present via video, so there are no expensive equipment costs or fees. And the kit is FREE!
Your church provides the venue, the worship team, the food and an MC. That’s it! The best part is that once the conference is over, tools will be provided to help you disciple your men and connect them to groups that will “keep the discussion going”.
Great speakers, awesome breakout sessions and after conference plugins! The only thing missing is your church!
Don’t miss out on this opportunity to engage, encourage & equip your men to build a Christ-centered legacy. And maybe we can begin chipping away at those problems in the world. And hear some good news for a change!

It's free, and you'll be connecting your men to a powerful initiative that will make them, their families, communities and their church better. In addition, we've made it easy and we will be here for you at every step. We have established a low ticket price of $25. It is important to understand that this will go 100% to covering the cost of putting on the conference.How long is the conference?
The conference is 4.5 hours long, features 7 speakers with breakout sessions plus worship. We recommend you start the conference at 8:30am on April 28th so that it ends at 1:00pm and provides men with the opportunity to go out and grab lunch with another man.

Final comments and What’s next
Local pastor provides opportunity to pray
Closing comments – Master of CeremoniesDo I have to follow the schedule exactly?
Yes. The schedule is put together the way it is for a reason.Can we sell vendor tables or secure a sponsor?
As mentioned above the entire ticket price will go to covering the costs involved in putting together this conference. However there are at least 3 ways that your church can take care of any expenses you may have and most likely not only provide your church with a great event but also leave you in the black! Therefore you can do a free will offering at the break, sell vendor tables and/or find a sponsor to cover all the costs. These are all easy and effective ways to cover costs if need be.
What about food/refreshments?
We recommend you provide coffee and bagels but feel free to do whatever you feel led. Men do love coffee and something and for break time it just makes sense. Since the event is scheduled to last 4.5 hours it might be a great idea to have a BBQ right after to keep the fellowship going. Again this is entirely up to you.
