Man Up! - Clarks Summit University

MAN UP! | May 14–15, 2021

Given the health concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, especially regarding large group gatherings, the Man Up! committee, under the guidance of the CSU Response Team, has decided to postpone the 2020 Man Up! event.

The good news is, the entire event is being rolled over into 2021. This means, men who have already registered for Man Up! 2020 are now already registered for Man Up! 2021, including housing reservations. Registrants do not need to do anything; the rollover is automatic.

Man Up! will now be held on May 14–15, 2021. The featured speaker will remain Pat Williams, senior vice president of Orlando Magic and former general manager of the Chicago Bulls, Atlanta Hawks and Philadelphia 76ers.

We will look forward to this spiritually recharging event next year!

An 18-hour event for men to get away, gear up and give back.

Hit the pause button on your daily grind and recharge spiritually with other men who are excited about serving Christ, May 14–15, 2021.

On the campus of Clarks Summit University, you’ll eat well, recharge, learn from God’s Word and even help with a service project during this jam-packed experience.

Come after work on Friday, and you’ll get home in time for dinner Saturday—refreshed and ready to MAN UP for Christ!

  • Featured speaker: Pat Williams, Senior vice president of Orlando Magic | Former General Manager of Chicago Bulls, Atlanta Hawks and Philadelphia 76ers
  • Prime rib dinner, man-sized brunch, sundae bar

Man Up! is a great experience for men’s groups to attend together. With only an 18-hour time commitment and low cost, it’s accessible for church groups, small groups and friends. With activities, excellent food and Bible messages from the world of sports, your group truly will want to experience this event together.
