Man Alive is a Christian Men’s Conference for the men of Porterville and the surrounding central San Joaquin valley.

Man Alive was founded in 2009 and on March 14, 2020, we will be kicking off our 11th conference. It has always been our desire to keep the suggested cost of admission as low as possible.

All this plus a full breakfast and snacks!

Thank you and God bless.

Milt’s Vision

In February of 2009, after a weekend that included meditation and reflection on my relationship with my Lord and Savior, a vision was laid on me that I could not ignore, even though I tried. The vision was of the men of Porterville and surrounding communities to come together to praise Him in prayer, worship and fellowship. After praying with my pastor, I was led to a small group of Christian men that shared my vision. As a result of their dedication and hard work, Man Alive – a Christian Men’s Conference was formed. My hope and prayer is that every man in Porterville and the surrounding communities will come to the conference and, as one, will praise and accept the Lord as their personal savior.
