The No Regrets Men's Conference is an annual event, started in 1994, designed to create an environment for men to be challenged in their relationship with the Lord at home, in the workplace, and in their ministry.

We're in the process of establishing our speakers and topics for 2019. Based on feedback received on last year's form, we're likely to repeat several topics and bring back some popular topics from prior years.  

Date: Saturday, February 2

Time: 7:00 AM - 4:05 PM

Location: CTR (Map)

Tickets: $30/adult ($35 at door) and $15/youth. Request scholarship or group order (email names, emails, and we'll send payment instructions).

We have a mix of national speakers being simulcast from Elmbrook Church in Brookfield, and a solid line-up of local speakers talking about issues of importance to local men. Several of the general session speakers have already been named, including:



Stuart has ministered on every continent, written more than 40 books, pastored Elmbrook Church for 30 years, and founded a media ministry called Telling the Truth which now broadcasts daily worldwide. He has been married to Jill for more than 59 years and has three children and 13 grandchildren.



For 14 years, Rod served as a life coach and chaplain to the NFL’s Baltimore Ravens, helping them to build a winning culture among front office executives, coaches, and players.

He’s an author, speaker and motivator of men from all walks of life – from corporate boardrooms, to professional athletics, to local churches.



Bryan serves the Abundant Life Christian Fellowship of Silicon Valley, California, as the Lead Pastor. An award-winning author of five books, Bryan co-founded Fellowship Memphis in 2003, and later founded The Kainos Movement – an organization committed to seeing the multi-ethnic church become the new normal in our world. Bryan is the privileged husband of Korie, and the graced father of three sons – Quentin, Myles and Jaden.

In 1995, Dan founded Winning At Home, Inc., an organization that produces media resources and hosts special events to develop marriages and families. Currently Dan is serving as the division leader for the Marriage & Family Division of the AACC. Prior to founding Winning At Home, Dan served at a large church in Michigan as Pastor of Student Ministries and then as Pastor of Family Life. He and his wife Jane have four children and live in West Michigan.



Steve is the President and Founder of No Regrets Men’s Ministries. He also serves as Executive Pastor of Ministries at Elmbrook Church. His passion is to see every local church have its own ministry to men. Besides working with the men of Elmbrook for the past 25 years, he regularly speaks at men’s conferences and consults and leads seminars nationally and internationally, assisting churches in developing local men’s ministries. In his free time, he serves as chaplain for the Milwaukee Brewers baseball team. Steve and Colleen have been married for 33 years and have four grown children and three grandchildren.
