Courage PK Events 2019
Friday: 7pm - 9:30pm; Saturday: 9am - 6pm
Riccarton Baptist Church, 80 Rattray Street, Riccarton
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

Peter Meafou – "Authentic Christian Manhood"

Pete loves motivating and inspiring others to succeed. He has been involved in ministry in the community for over 20 years including establishing a charitable trust to work with children and young people delivering community programs for families and running events attracting up to 10,000 people. He is part of the leadership team at his local church and is passionate about young people enjoying God and life. As a young teen, Pete’s life was going in quite a different direction. At the age of 14 he was in rehab for a drug addiction. Then at 16 he was kidnapped and thought he was going to die. It’s an incredible story which he will share at PK.


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 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.
