We stream it. You host it. Men’s lives change.
The No Regrets Conference is a men’s conference intended to help jump-start ministry to men in your local church community. It’s a one-day event that transforms men’s lives by empowering them to walk in loving, trusting obedience of Jesus Christ. Men will be encouraged to be who God created them to be and to walk in step with the Holy Spirit on a moment-by-moment basis. Following the conference, we’ll prepare you with resources to generate more small groups to connect and disciple your men for the other 364 days of the year.
How Does It Work?
The format for the event day is scalable to your specific church size and current ministry program. Is this your first men’s event? Invite your guys to attend the day-long conference, streamed in high-definition to your facility. You get the full day’s program complete with 6 platform messages.
Technically all you need is a computer and projections screen(s) to view the conference. The live webcast will be provided via a browser based Flash video stream. Make sure you test the video stream at your site before you sign up for the conference.

Already have a men’s ministry?
Then customize your day by using your own live music worship band and offer some live seminars in addition to those provided. The No Regrets Conference is your event and gives you the flexibility to plan a day specific to your audience.
How Much Does It Cost?
You pay a $400 non-refundable sign-on fee upfront designed to cover the first 80 men and you pay a $5 attendee charge for each additional man. If you have less than 80 men attending, your total cost will not exceed the $400 fee. You set your own ticket prices and keep additional revenues to help fund your ministry.
We help you promote and plan your day.
Once you’re signed on, you’ll have full access to downloadable materials like bulletin inserts, web banners and posters (at no extra cost) to help you promote the conference. In addition, you can purchase large size banners, event t-shirts for your staff, and other resources to help engage your men.
Our other resources will help men continue to grow in their faith after this conference.
The No Regrets Conference is not just a one-day event; it is a major step toward a vital ministry to men that multiplies devoted disciples of Jesus Christ. We’ll equip you with resources to get small groups started to connect and disciple your men.

To give our host sites a greater opportunity to customize their event, we offer TWO channels of live streamed content. Our primary streaming channel will feature all sessions and speakers from our Auditorium location. The second streaming channel will be active during the breakout session portions of the day, featuring live content streamed from our Chapel location. During these breakout sessions, host sites have the option to stream either channel in their main event room or they can set up a second location to be able to stream both channels, giving the attendees a choice on which session they would like to attend.
All of the sessions from the Auditorium and the Chapel will be posted to this website immediately following the conference so that attendees can watch archived content at their convenience.
