Makhaira Card Stone

August 4-5, 2023 

Thanks for visiting the Makhaira Men's Conference page!

So, what exactly does "Makhaira" mean?
 "Makhaira" is the Greek word for "sword". We find this in Ephesians 6:17, where Paul calls the Word of God a sword. It is paramount that Christian men have a strong grasp on the Bible and a close relationship with Christ. Our marriages, homes, lives and relationships hinge on it. Join us for an incredible two days of fellowship, singing, encouragement, worship and Bible preaching! There is a cap on registration so register today!
The first three conferences have been incredible. We hope that men will be encouraged, edified and equipped to return home stronger in their relationship with Jesus Christ and His Word! We believe that Christ is going to do a great work in this year's conference.
