Men don't just happen. They are made.
Men in our modern culture are uninitiated, untrained, and underdeveloped. Maybe you feel like that. We know we have.
We are wondering what to do with our strength, our wounds, our longings and our gifts. Some men bottle their frustration and sadness, others overcompensate through achievement and accomplishment. Others take the time to process Gods vision for their life, and to deal with their longings and pain.
That's why we have created the Making of a Man Conference. A place to do just this. Our vision is to form mens hearts to reject the passivity of our moment, without becoming a caricature of our culture.

What is the Forming Men Conference?
We have designed an immersive, formative experience to help you make sense of your story, redeem your pain, identify your gifts, clarify your vision, and live out your calling.
And you will not do this alone. You will be surrounded by a like-minded community of brothers who will take you seriously, listen deeply and encourage fiercely.
We believe God entrusted each of us with a sphere of influence and a calling to use our strength on behalf of others. We believe this happens best when men are formed into the image of Jesus and bring his passion, kindness, anger, joy and hope to the world.
Some may roll their eyes at an event like this. Others may dismiss it as unnecessary. Yet we believe the world needs men like Jesus, and spaces like this to encounter him in breakthrough ways.
"The Forming Men conference was unlike any other conference I've been to. I left with tools and frameworks I didn't even know existed! Not to mention I'm not sure I've been at an event that was so encouraging, equipping, and 'family' feeling more than this one."
When in the Arkansas delta, we fry fish! Join us for our Forming Men after-party hangout, which will be like none other we’ve ever done. We will gather together to celebrate the weekend, get to know John and Jeff, and throw down on some of Arkansas’ best fried goodness.
