Standing Strong

Each year men from across the upstate of South Carolina join us to sit under the preached word of God, fellowship with other men of all ages and walks of life, and worship the Lord together. This year's conference will feature Dr. Hershael York from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. You will have the opportunity to attend breakout sessions, eat good food, and be challenged and encouraged by the word of God. We hope that you will join us!
