Courage PK Events 2019
Friday: 7pm - 9:30pm; Saturday: 9am - 6pm
Victory Convention Centre, 98 Beaumont Street, Freemans Bay
COURAGE is living the life Jesus has for you.

You may feel more like Jonah than Joshua. You may want to put a fleece out rather than step out, but in your heart you know God is calling you.

Let’s step forward together. Enter into His presence. Live out your destiny.

"Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; Do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9

PK Events help men to focus on life purpose, destiny, character and integrity, based on Christian values.

At this Event be connect with God. Be inspired and equipped by dynamic speakers, impacting worship, prayer and interaction with other men in an atmosphere of faith and in the presence of the Holy Spirit.

Friday Night

David Dusek – "Authentic Christian Manhood" 

David’s mission is to encourage and equip men to live their lives for Christ. He utilises his life experiences – including his upbringing in a non-Christian home, coming to Christ as an adult, and extensive business background – to reach men in a way they can understand. David is the founder of Rough Cut Men Ministries, which is primarily a live, interactive men’s experience using a strategic combination of action movie sequences, real world current events, biblical truth and fireteam-sized discussion times with a single, laser-focused objective: To get men talking about what’s really going on in their lives.


Mick Duncan – "Boldness to Step Into The Hard Stuff"

Dr Michael (Mick) Duncan is a speaker and author who knows what it’s like to go through difficult times. This included a painful season where his daughter was tied up in a lifestyle of drugs. Mick will share the journey of his prodigal daughter and the way that God helped Mick and his wife, Ruby, through this. Mick is a “minor-kiwi-prophet” who has a PhD in John Wesley, a Masters in Dietrich Bonhoeffer and a 10 year slum-street-degree from Manila. Mick’s latest book is Alongsiders, on how to do time with people who are different and difficult. Mick currently pastors without being a Pastor, speaks throughout NZ & Australia and has a heart for vulnerable kids needing care and protection.

Richard Black – "Courage to Have an Honest Look at Ourselves"

Richard Black (BA, BD, MCouns, MNZAC) is the founder and Managing Director of Strength to Strength. He is sought after as a counsellor and communicator. Richard has worked in pastoral leadership for many years and understands the everyday struggles that people face and the demands on church leaders. Through his counselling, training, and public speaking he helps people strengthen their thinking, be proactive in relationships, and succeed with life.

David Dusek – "Courage to Stay The Course"

David Dusek is the founder of Rough Cut Men Ministries. David is a frequent keynote speaker at Iron Sharpens Iron Men’s Conferences and men’s conferences worldwide. He is the author of the Amazon #1 Best-Selling “Rough Cut Men: A Man’s Battle Guide To Building Relationships with Each Other, And With Jesus”.
He has developed “Who Has Your Six”, a video series designed for the US Army Chaplain Corps worldwide to combat soldier isolation, domestic violence, alcoholism and the ever-escalating suicide rate. He has worked with soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines presenting his “unit friendly” content at the United States Naval Academy, the United States Military Academy at West Point, Joe Gibbs Racing, iconic Army units like the 101st Airborne Division, 7th Special Forces Group and 1st Cavalry Division, and at numerous Army installations in the US, Germany and Korea.
