What is Mannafest?

The purpose of the 2018 Mannafest Conference is to provide the tools needed for men to become Godly leaders in the home, community and workplace. Mannafest explores God’s meaning of manhood and equips men with the resources to build enduring manhood.

The conference will be hosted at Crossover Bible Fellowship, a gospel-centered church located in northwest Houston, Texas.

Crossover Bible Fellowship

With space to hold 700 men, Crossover has been home to the previous Mannafest conferences as well as other life-changing conferences such as Conscious Christianity, Sex and The Gospel as well as Naked & Unashamed, a conference focused on marriage.

Be on the alert, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong.
(1 Corinthians 16:13)
