PK Local Events
PK wants to meet you where you are by providing multiple local events. We are scheduling “PK Local Events” between Whangarei and Invercargill, featuring local NZ keynote speakers.
Our vision is to equip you as an individual to successfully meet as men in community and ultimately to minister to your family, your church, your mates and your local community. You can expand the Kingdom of God when you join together with us to break isolation in your local area. So check out the local PK events and invite your friends.
