This year SMN has an exciting announcement. We are launching "Stronger Boys," a guided journey for dads with sons raising boys (ages 6-14) to be men. Product is limited to the first 100 dads who sign up. Dads will be invited to help us beta-test our product, helping us sharpen and refine it in preparation to help thousands of dads in the future.

KTD branded axe and cover


  • The conference is open to all men.

  • The weekend is designed to have a cumulative effect. If you can only make Friday or Saturday, you can still register. But we highly, highly encourage you to plan for the whole weekend.

  • While we will try to provide a variety of options, we cannot guarantee to meet every need. If you have specific dietary restrictions, we suggest you make arrangements to bring your own food.

  • YES! We highly encourage fathers to bring their sons! We recommend ages 8 and up to fully enjoy the weekend (the multiple sessions could feel long for younger ages), but each dad can make his own decision based on the frame of his son.

  • No. And we'd really encourage you to plan to be there the whole time!

  • Let us know right away at

A 2-day event packed full of fun events, challenging competitions, loud singing, good food, and pull-no-punches teaching. 

Stronger Man Nation is a fraternity of like-minded men living out manhood
with clear eyes in a confused culture. We'd love for you to join us.

An Invitation from Pastor Josh

In a land full of dragons, we need more dragon slayers.


SMN is a growing tribe of like-minded men. Our annual conference is where we gather the coals and stoke the fire to a movement of Stronger Men with a singular passion to play the man and live out our Stronger Man code.


That code is simple, compelling, and guides us into the high country of noble manhood.


PROTECT others from danger & harm. 

PROVIDE for others through hard work and sweat. 

LEAD others by our example and influence.  

LOVE deeply all those within our reach.


All in the service of others. All no matter the cost to ourselves. 


This is the meaningful life. 

This is the way of nobility. 

This is Stronger Man Nation.


I'll be there with my two sons, my brother, his two sons, and our dad...the OG stronger man in my life. All of us McPherson men would be honored for you to join us. We'll see you there.


Pastor Josh

Our theme will focus on the first half of our ethos, "Kill the Dragon, Win the Girl." Pastor Josh will address this in main sessions, answering questions such as:

  • What will it take for you to become a threat to the enemy? 

  • How are you growing as a dangerous man under control and in the service of the King? 

  • Where are you weak and in need of strength?

  • Where are you cowardly and in need of courage?

  • Where are you fearful and in need of fortitude?

  • Where are you lazy and in need of initiative and action?

  • Where are you reckless and in need of self-control?

  • What defines the dragon slayer and how can you become one?

  • What are the dragons you're facing right now in your life, marriage, family?

  • What are common dragons that every man must face?

  • What are the specific dragons rearing their head in our culture?
