We are all in the same boat. Whether it's in the past or present, we are familiar with the struggle of being sexually pure. If you are a man and have never struggled in this area or don't know anyone else who has struggled in this area, this conference isn't for you. This will be a NO JUDGMENT ZONE, brutally honest and blunt, with no beating around the bush! So if you think you can handle it...join us for Every Man's Battle!

Come see what it’s like when you are called and created to do something special.
