Think of everything unique about men — their passions, activities, sports, man toys, and motivational explorer/speakers —and you’ll know what makes them tick. That is what the Get Real Men’s Expo is all about.
The 2021 Get Real Men’s Expo will be held 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM Aug. 21 at Mountaintop Christian Fellowship campus, 1519 W Gurley St, Prescott. This will be the event’s ninth year after it had to be canceled in 2020. It was previously held at Yavapai College.
New for this year will be ax throwing, bull riding, rock climbing, fly fishing, tee-off long-distance golf drives, drones, and more, all designed for boys to men of all ages.
“This year’s Expo focuses on good clean fun that is uniquely male while providing a Christian role model that renews faith,” says Dan Olsen, past Expo chairman. “We want men to have fun and get involved in their local church again.”
The free event is made possible by the support of over 27 local churches and many Christian business owners as the Every Man Arizona coalition. Through a partnership with Promise Keepers, they will fly in global explorer and renowned Bible archaeologist Dr. Bob Cornuke to speak at 11:00 AM. He speaks to thousands each year and shares what may be the most incredible archaeological discovery to date — Mount Sinai.
The numerous other activities will include a “Dunk the Pastor” booth, demonstrations about chainsaw carving, K-9 attacks and off-roading, a garden ministry for growing your own food, a classic car show, and much more, says John Murphy, who will be the event’s emcee.
Women are welcome to come enjoy the event, he said, but its focus has always been on building fellowship and mentorship among Christian men, particularly fathers and sons. About 800 people attended in 2019.
“If you’re a father and you have young children, this is a place where you’ll be surrounded by positive people, and it’s a great time for kids that they will probably remember for the rest of their lives,” he said.
