September 15 & 16


Born on the south side of Chicago, LaMorris Crawford was only ten months old when his mother was shot to death at the young age of seventeen; to this day he still has no idea who his father is. Growing up without parents, in poverty and a city of violence, LaMorris found his own way of survival through gangs, drugs, popularity, and basketball.

Although he was a popular athlete, this attention could not fill the void in his life. When LaMorris was nineteen years old he had an encounter with Jesus Christ that changed him forever. Christ completely changed the course of his life. The first in his family to attend college, LaMorris earned both an undergraduate and graduate degree.

Today, LaMorris and his wife Megan have four beautiful children, and they serve as the team chaplains to the Cincinnati Bengals. He has a passion for preaching, communicating clearly and effectively the Word of God by sharing with others how God can also do an incredible work in their lives.

The Joshua Man of the Year award is presented annually by Realife Church at Men’s Conference. The award honors a man who’s faith & commitment to Christ has empowered him to lead others spiritually, overcome unique obstacles, and take ground for the Kingdom of God.

This man is nominated by friends & family, and selected by the leadership team of Realife Church. He is a man who exemplifies Joshua 1:6-9.

“Be strong and courageous, for you are the one who will lead these people to possess all the land I swore to their ancestors I would give them.  Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the instructions Moses gave you. Do not deviate from them, turning either to the right or to the left. Then you will be successful in everything you do. Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do. This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”

Nominate Your Man


Childcare will not be provided during the conference. Our hope is that the Men’s Conference will be a time for you to “get away” and be free from distraction so you can receive all God has for you.

You can come just as you are, but we encourage you to bring a Bible, a notebook, and a pen.

The attire is casual and there may be some physical activity.  Please come dressed appropriately.

There are no additional fees, and all meals and snacks are included in your registration fee.

Because of purchasing food, t-shirts, etc. we highly recommend you register as soon as possible! However, you can register at the door, but it will cost an extra $10. Go ahead & sign up now!

No way! You do not have to attend Realife to come to the conference. In fact, we welcome every guy who desires to grow spiritually & have a great time.

Men of all ages are welcome! There will be men from every age range that attend, so everyone should feel comfortable. Topics that will be discussed are most appropriate for high school ages and above. Please note that there are Student Ministries retreats and conferences designed for junior high students that will be more age-appropriate and topic-specific for them.

Thank you for understanding that all registrations are transferrable but non-refundable. Transfers are the responsibility of the two parties involved, and Realife does not arrange payment for transferred registrations or the exchange of wristbands/tickets.
