Online Experience

What does the online experience include?
  • Access to every session
  • Exclusive live hosting
  • Two shareable links/guest passes
  • Access to conference content for 30 days
  • The conference gift package.
How do I access the online experience?

Once you have completed your registration, you will be emailed an online pass, which is your ticket to view the conference online. An online pass is a personalized, exclusive link for you to view the conference online from your home!

What if I don’t have internet access or need help with the technology involved?

Conference at home is designed to be experienced online and would require internet access and a compatible device. If you do not have access to the internet, we would recommend that you share the conference with a friend who has internet access! For Technical Assistance during the conference, you can ask for help in the helpdesk on the conference viewing platform or call 417-582-8222 during conference weekend.

Can I gather a group of men at my house to watch the conference with me?

That is a great idea! We highly encourage men to gather in homes or churches to view the conference together! We do ask that each guy who is watching either have a registration or use one of your online guest passes.

Before the Conference

Can my son come with me?

We highly recommend that you bring your son with you to the conference! Our recommended age for sons sharing the conference experience with their families is 12 years and older. Registration is required for both you and your son. Please note, for safety reasons, minors must be accompanied by an adult at all times during the conference.

Are there any nearby airports to fly into?

There are two airports in the Springfield, MO area that you can use to fly into. The Springfield-Branson Airport (SGF), which is the closest to the conference, and the Branson Airport (BKG). There are also several nearby hotel options to choose from.
