Event description

Gil Bates, Peter Magnuson, and others plan to join us February 7–9, 2019, in Oak Brook, Illinois, for a men’s conference. The messages shared will inspire and encourage men in their walk with the Lord, in being leaders at home, and in serving Christ. The close proximity to both major Chicago airports makes this destination very convenient for travel to the Midwest. With this weekend conference occurring toward the beginning of the year, hopefully men will begin 2019 with a great start in being all they can be for the Lord and in advancing His Kingdom.

*The first 30 people to register will have lodging included in the registration fee.



Gary Fraley

  • Gary Fraley’s message, “Keeping It All Together,” will encourage you in the spiritual leadership of your home through illustrations from the ten years he and his father hunted on horseback.

Peter Magnuson

  • Peter is the son of speaker/attorney Roger Magnuson, a favorite of past Family Conferences. Like his father, Peter is a practicing attorney, the pastor of Straitgate Church in inner-city Minneapolis, and an engaging speaker.

Gil and Kelly Bates

  • Gil and Kelly have seen God take care of their family of 19 children. They delight in sharing testimonies of God’s work in their lives.
