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 guest speaker, Neil Kennedy. You and the men in your church do not want to miss out on this event! 

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!

    Who is Jesus?

    More than two thousand years ago God sent Jesus Christ into this world. He became one of us, but he did nothing wrong. He showed us what God is like – merciful and kind. He healed the sick people, the blind were made to see, the deaf to hear, the lame to walk. Some people followed him, and to them he gave a new way of life – God’s way. But others hated Him because He was so good, and he exposed their evil ways.

    He gave his own life as a sacrifice, a payment for our sins. He died on the cross to save us. Three days after he died, Jesus Christ came back from the dead. Now He lives in the power of an endless life to meet your need, to be your Saviour, to forgive your sins. Jesus Christ is the only one who can do this for you.

    Why We Exist
