Prayer Ministry

It is our hope and expectation that as God's Word is preached at Courageous, the Holy Spirit will be at work in the hearts of the many men who will be attending. Therefore a ministry team will be available throughout the day for any guys who need to talk and pray about any of the issues that have challenged them. All members of the prayer ministry team will be well-known and trusted local pastors and leaders.

Man Stuff

There's going to be a whole load of man stuff available at this year's Courageous conference - darts, kebabs and beermats to name just a few! There will also be a fantastic range of Bibles, books, DVDs, study guides and other resources for blokes available throughout the day courtesy of our friends at The Good Book Company
