men's conference

The Mind of Christ

Men’s Conference is a time where like-minded men rally together under one roof to be inspired and equipped! It is an opportunity for them to grow and become the men God wants them to be.

Every year Ps André, the visionary behind the Men’s Conference, invites outstanding communicators from across the world, to bring us a word from God that will impact and inspire. In 2020, we have confirmed speakers Ps Brian Houston, global Senior Pastor of Hillsong and Dr Mensa Otabil all the way from Ghana. Along with our own Ps. André, they will no doubt add something valuable and dynamic to our lives.

Parking for Men's Conference

We’re excited to be rolling out the red carpet for every man this year, and part of that is ensuring that the flow of traffic around campus is as smooth as possible. This means that some men will park on campus, and others around the corner at Sandown High, escorted in shuttles in a quick trip onto campus and back.

If your registration number is from 0 – 1800 you will be parking on site at Rivers Sandton, and registrations from 1801 upwards will park at Sandown High.

 You will receive an SMS confirming where you will be parking. Have your SMS ready on arrival to gain access to the correct parking venue. Make sure you come a little early, and take into account the travel time in the shuttle to ensure you don’t miss anything!

 GPS coordinates of Sandown High School: -26.0965259, 28.0570393.
 Entrance on Rivonia Rd, opposite Jaguar.

 Shuttles will leave every 10 minutes or when full.
