How do I access the online experience?

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.
