Kitsap County Mens Conference

We would like to invite all men (16 and up) to the Kitsap County Men's Conference featuring David Dusek from ROUGHCUT Mens Ministry. This event is an all day event to bring men together from all walks of life, fathers & father in law, brother & brother in laws, military & veterans.

 The purpose of THE ROUGH CUT MEN MOVIE EXPERIENCE is really simple…to get men to begin engaging with one another in an authentic and transparent way.  We just get guys talking to each other!

 Rough Cut Men has been presented at the US military service academies, US Army installations worldwide, NASCAR Sprint Cup teams, IndyCar race events, Teen Challenge Men’s Centers and just about any Christian denomination you can name.

 Through the use of major motion picture clips from “Saving Private Ryan”, “The Gridiron Gang”, “Armageddon” and even “Shrek” and “Over the Hedge” to name a few, men come away realizing that they are not the only ones going through challenges.  Using a strategic balance of Hollywood action movies, relevant current events, Biblical Truth and personal testimony, men become engaged with each other.

 Please come join us... reserve your spot TODAY!!

 Event Admission Fee (if any): 35.00 lunch included
