Check-Point Conference 23 is a unique gathering designed to empower and educate the next generation of young men through a Christian perspective. This exciting event focuses on fostering understanding and personal growth, and a deeper understanding of Christian values as young men.
Both men and boys who attend, will gain valuable Biblical insight to help build and guide towards a purposeful and faith-driven future.
