About the HERO Conference

Manhood is under attack from all sides. Political correctness and decades of blurred lines have caused men to lose their place in this world. It takes the strength of a HERO to stand up and be the man that God intended. The HERO Conference gives men the time to focus on what God wants for them. Through a perfect blend of challenging teaching, refreshing activities, and the chance to shut the world out and listen to God, the HERO Conference will spur you on and help you begin or continue your journey to true Biblical manhood. A HERO is a man who is Hopeful, Engaged, Ready, and Obedient. Do you have the courage to step up and be the HERO that your family, your community and this world so desperately needs?
