Southern Colorado men will have the opportunity to meet and talk about how to be better husbands, fathers, and community leaders, at the Restoration Men's Conference on October 1 and 2.

The christian-based Pueblo Men's Coalition is hosting the non-denominational conference, which is open to men 16 and older. Areas that will get specific focus will be Fathering, Finances, Family Leadership, Addictions, Identity, Sexuality, and Mentoring.

The conference is bringing in three main speakers to talk to the men: Former World Champion Bull Rider Cody Custer, Best Selling Author Fred Stoeker, and from Mercy Seat Ministries Midwest Jayme Montera.

"I think we need to look up to our fathers and our fathers need to leave a legacy to our kids. Not one that says, I'm an addict don't you be one, or I'm sorry I divorced your mom, but I found someone else. I mean what kind of message is that? And I know we've all made mistakes, trust me, I'm not exempt from this. I've made my mistakes. The difference is, I'm trying to do the best I can with what I've been dealt with. And the best thing for me to do is to find resources that are available for me, so that I can be a better husband, better father, better leader in my community," says Phil Chapin, a supporter of the conference.

Tickets are $25 and available online at or by calling (866) 307-0390. You can buy them in person at The Greatest Gift located at 505 N. Grand Avenue or Jordan Residential located at 2928 Withers Avenue in Pueblo.

The $25 dollar ticket covers both days, and includes lunch. Friday's session starts at 4:30 p.m. and Saturday's session begins at 8:00 a.m.
