WE ASKED WHAT’S MOST CHALLENGING ABOUT BEING A CHRISTIAN?


In last week’s survey to the database, we asked the question ‘What are the most challenging things, to you, about being a Christian?
The second most ‘popular‘ answer was “Sharing Jesus with friends”.
Top of the list was “Keeping a regular personal time with God”.

CVM have resources to help guys maintain a close relationship with Jesus.

Sharing Jesus with Friends
CVM have a great day lined up to equip men to share their faith with their mates and other guys they’re in contact with.

With 15min klaxon controlled talks, Quickfire ’15The Message and the Man’ will feature some excellent speakers, each fitting their best thinking into quarter of an hour.
Talks will cover themes such as: Identity in Christ, telling your story, science, reaching men who don’t do church plus many more.

Quickfire ’15 will be informative, fun and, we believe, life changing.
The content is created to inspire, encourage and equip you share your story of faith in Jesus, with more confidence and in a natural way.
