We will be offering two options for registration this year, “all-inclusive” which includes your lodging, meals, sessions, GAME ON tournaments and more; and a registration “without lodging”, Heartland has a great campsite that you may choose to stay at during Gameday! IF YOU PICK THE “WITHOUT LODGING” OPTION, IT WILL BE YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO CONTACT HEARTLAND TO RESERVE YOUR TENT OR RV SITE PROR TO GAMEDAY. This option will still include meals, sessions, and tournaments.
What is Gameday?
Gameday is a men’s conference held each year creating an atmosphere for men to encounter Jesus. The goal of Gameday is to encourage, equip, and empower men to embrace all God has for them. The sessions will be packed with some challenging messages from our returning guest speaker, Adam McCain. You and the men in your church do not want to miss out on this event! This year’s theme is RISE!
We will have around 13 different tournaments to participate in; which will include everything from 3 on 3 basketball, corn hole, shooting, video games, paintball, and even our very own Gameday Mudder Run obstacle course, just to name a few! In addition, we will have activities for those who may not want to participate in the tournaments; including a motorcycle ride, zip line, ropes course, volleyball, and board games. We will also have side contests with prizes for those that may be eliminated from their tournament earlier than others. More detailed information is below. It is going to be our best yet!
