For several years, Steve served as one of the breakout speakers for Pastor Johnny’s men’s conference where First Baptist Woodstock hosts the largest gathering of men in North America, approximately eleven thousand. Men Who Win conferences pack four hours of in-depth teaching into a Friday evening and Saturday morning, providing an environment where issues are addressed pertaining primarily to guys. Unlike a typical Sunday worship service, this venue allows the men to be exposed to a transparent environment in which Steve talks about those “weights and sins” that so often prevent men from running the Christian race with the kind of endurance that enables them to finish faithfully. There are few problems in the church or in our culture that could not be quickly solved if men would step up to assume their God-ordained calling as spiritual leaders. The statistics below, though brief and limited, only reinforce the overwhelming need for such conferences.
Consider the Following:
Kids without a Dad are:
- 10 times more likely to abuse chemical substances.
- 9 times more likely to drop out of school.
- 8 times more likely to go to prison.
- 5 times more like to commit suicide.
- 72% of all teenage murderers
- 90% of all teenage runaways
- 71% of all teenage dropouts
- 75% of children living in poverty
- 75% of all teens in substance abuse centers…..
All Of The Above Have A Dad Who Checked Out Of Their Lives!
And On & On It Goes…
- The average man gives less than 3% to the cause of Christ.
- In a study of professional executives, 88% had at least one affair.
- On any given Sunday morning, 50% of the men sitting in the congregation are addicted pornography.
And this is only a partial picture, but it largely accounts for the moral decline being experienced by America. The question is not “Why should we schedule a men’s conference,” but more importantly, “Why should we NOT schedule such a conference?” Some of the guys attending will give their lives to Christ. Others return home as better fathers and husbands. Others will take their walk to a deeper level. Bottom line… the church will be the beneficiary.
These Men Have this to Say About Men Who Win
“If you have an opportunity to have Steve Hale conduct a Men Who Win conference, do not delay. Steve handled every aspect of his time in our church with great integrity. We saw our men challenged, inspired, and convicted by the sessions Steve led. Steve has a grasp on what is happening in today’s culture, what is going on in the lives of men and what they need to understand, skillfully teaching and applying the Word of God to the most crucial areas of a man’s life. I told our church the following Sunday that I felt as if I were being fed at a spiritual buffet, but instead of choosing items, I needed all that was offered. Several days after this conference, we are still talking about the impact of Steve’s time with us. My staff said, ‘We must bring him back.’ One of my laymen wrote to me, ‘Dr. Hale is a man for our time to speak to the hearts of men.’ Another layman wrote, ‘Pastor, I just wanted to pass along my heart-felt thanks for having Steve Hale here this weekend. It was inspiring to say the least. He carried the touch of God in every speaking opportunity.’ Without reservation or hesitation, I recommend his ministry to you.”

“We recently had Steve Hale come and lead on of his Men Who Win conferences as well as preach on Sunday. To say the least, it was one of the best weekends that I have ever experienced in ministry. Steve has the unique and rare ability to speak to men with the edge of a prophet combined with the heart of a pastor. He boldly challenged our men in their walk with Christ and also lovingly encouraged and exhorted them in the things of God—I assure you that your men will respond to Steve positively! Additionally, Steve stayed over to preach on Sunday and did a masterful job of drawing the net without manipulation and a number of people gave their hearts to Christ. On Sunday night he preached a message on the condition of our country that should be a required listen for every Christian in our country. Steve has a keen insight and discernment as to where we are as a nation and how we as the church should respond. I urge you to not delay in booking Steve to minister in your church—you will not regret it!”

“We had an outstanding time with Dr. Hale leading this very timely conference for our men. We had several who received Christ as their Savior and many more who truly turned to God in repentance, rededicating themselves to be the men God wants them to be. We are looking to a date in the not too distant future where we can have another Men Who Win conference.”

Dr. Steve Hale is a great evangelist, preacher, revivalist, and author. He is a great asset to the Men’s Ministry here at First Baptist Woodstock, Georgia where he serves as our Staff Evangelist. Having effectively ministered to thousands of men, Dr. Hale has been a key speaker in leading breakout sessions for the past several years at the Johnny Hunt Men’s Conference. Without reservation, I enthusiastically recommend Dr. Hale to your church and ministry. You will be exposed to the same in-depth teaching and passionate spirit to which we have grown accustomed.

“Boca Glades Baptist Church of Boca Raton, Florida recently hosted a Men’s Conference and Sunday Service/Revival with Dr. Steve Hale. God wonderfully blessed the Conference and our church family was deeply impacted. His content was deep and biblically sound. His delivery was powerful and professional. He followed any specific directives we gave him regarding his deportment and was a true servant and gracious guest. We would highly recommend him for your ministry.”
Rev. Sandy Huntsman
Boca Glades Baptist Church // Boca Glades, Florida
“Two years ago we invited Dr. Steve Hale to conduct one of his Men Who Win conferences and we are still seeing the fruit. A few of our men were radically changed and it is a joy to observe the continued transformation of our men as a result of the power of God’s Word through the Men Who Win conference. As I retire from a 26-year pastorate later this year, among my fond memories as Green Ridge’s pastor will be our times with Steve Hale. I’ve made a friend for life and commend him to you with full confidence that you’ll not be disappointed.”
Dr. Michael Palmer
Green Ridge Baptist Church // Roanoke, Virginia
“Dr. Steve Hale’s message to our men was powerful to say the least. In fact, I had just returned from attending two one-day conferences, but I received more relevant and inspirational content from one session with Dr. Hale’s time with our men than in those two full days of conferences. Only by God’s anointing can a session be so valuable. If you have never used this man of God, you are depriving your church family of a blessing.”
