Building on the Past to Redefine the Future.
Founded in 1990 by Coach Bill McCartney, Promise Keepers is one of the biggest movements of God in the history of the Church.
Focused on helping men live with integrity, Promise Keepers touched the lives of seven million men every year through its national conferences. Our sermons, worship music, and books encouraged men to make and keep the 7 Promises – a foundational set of principles for how men of God can apply Scripture to their daily lives.
That movement culminated on October 4, 1997, when over a million of these men gathered in the National Mall of Washington, D.C. to take a stand for Christ.
BACK TO OUR ROOTS
The new Promise Keepers is committed to connecting men across all denominational, generational, racial, and cultural lines. Our yearly conferences and local PK gatherings – combined with new virtual events and the PK App – give men across the world access to an unprecedented hub of Christian resources. This library of resources includes Bible studies, sermons, and practical courses developed by our incredible partner organizations and ministries, as well as the best Promise Keepers content from the last 30 years. Topics include fatherhood, marriage, faith, and mental health, with additional topics and resources added on a regular basis.
What’s more, our quarterly virtual events and everything in the PK App are free to both individuals and churches. Men’s groups host local gatherings throughout the year using resources geared specifically towards men and the issues they care about. We also help connect churches with larger organizations like Prison Fellowship for even greater opportunities for outreach and ministry.

A MOVEMENT REIGNITED TO
Reach the Next Generation
The PK App connects men across the world 365 days a year, so that local gatherings can expand exponentially to reach even more men with the 7 Promises. Our desire is for men to build brotherhood and community like never before—with our Community App as a connector for planning and hosting in-person events. The app provides resources that equip, connect, and activate men in practical ways. Find your band of brothers and receive daily devotionals and ongoing studies in the PK App.
If you want to bring our turn-key, biblically based men’s programs to your local church or community, email us at email@example.com. We look forward to hearing from you!

When Coach McCartney blessed Ken Harrison with the mantle to lead Promise Keepers, Ken’s first question was, “Why me, Lord?” In the first month of giving after he took leadership, Ken noticed envelopes full of change or stuffed with a single dollar bill coming in. In fact, the average gift was $3.40. Promise Keepers staff began calling long-time givers to ask their stories. We spoke to many people who were sacrificially giving out of the little they had. Each had a story about how the Lord had used Promise Keeper’s to change their lives.
One woman, who had given $5 per month for over 20 years, said that after her husband came back from a PK event, he was so utterly transformed as a man that she committed to giving every penny she could to Promise Keepers for the rest of her life. “I hope you aren’t calling to ask for more money,” she said, “I’m giving everything I have.”
It was at that moment that Ken Harrison committed to take no pay from Promise Keepers. “Every dollar that comes into this ministry is someone’s sacrificial giving,” he said. “They could have given it to feed the poor, or fight disease. They chose to give it to Promise Keepers and will honor that choice by being extremely careful with the money they entrusted to us. We will be accountable for every cent we spend as people who must give a report to our Father for what he has given us.”
