This Event costs approximately $4,000 to run. You can make a donation while registering for your ticket, or find general donation information [here]
A common request Promise Keepers receives is “who can we get to speak at our men’s event?” For small or remote groups especially, the costs can be prohibitive.
To help churches, PK has organised some fantastic speakers for this coming year who can be accessed from anywhere via Livestream.
Your church can now have a top quality speaker at your men’s breakfast! You can ask questions at the live Q&A at the end of the message. And it’s all free!
"As a pastor these events are so easy to organise and we know they are going to have great content. Really appreciate the work PK puts in to make these happen." - Anon
