Men praying at the No Regrets Conference.

The No Regrets Conference is a Wisconsin-statewide Christian men's conference started in 1994.[1]

History[edit]

The yearly conference is generally held on the first Saturday of February. Upwards of 5,000 men come from around the state to pray, hear keynote sessions, attend seminars, meet with other men or get information about volunteer opportunities (both locally and globally). There is a special teen track of seminars. There is also a men's ministry track of seminars that develops church staff into better leaders.

The main conference location is Elmbrook Church in Brookfield, Wisconsin. In 2009, the conference was concurrently held at Westbrook Church in Delafield, WI and New Testament church in Milwaukee, WI. The conference is almost entirely run by over 200 volunteers. The tickets cost $30 in 2013, including lunch.

Seminars[edit]

Seminar topics range throughout a variety of topics including:

  • Engaging With Your Community
  • Finances - A Heavenly Perspective
  • Living in Your Step-Family and Leading with Love (Blended Families)
  • Meeting Jesus For the First Time
  • Prayer: After God's Own Heart
  • Understanding the Technology in Your Kid's Life[2]
