For this service, Pastor Albert speaks on the powerful topic of the armor of God. The Lord has already given us what we need to live a Christ-centered life, but just because we have the blessings doesn't mean we're putting them on.

For the 3rd and final part of the Men's Conference, Pastor Ed delivers an important message on the mission of a man.

When we think about mission and purpose, we start with the fact that we have one. We may not be fully aware of it, but God has something extraordinary in mind for all of us.
For the second part of the Men's conference, Pastor Chuck gives an insightful preaching on the soul of a man.

For this service, Pastor Albert speaks on the richness of “usness” that comes from Christ.

When we do this, God begins to bring the community of Christ together so that true change can take shape.
For this service, Pastor Albert delivers an important message on the full reach of the grace of God.
