Christian Vision for Men

News Details

Posted date: 31 Oct 2018


We continue our movement forward in the UK to introduce men to Jesus and, once again, want to give a plug for our friends at Care for the Family who, sharing our sense of importance of ministering to men, have added more dates and venues to their men’s event tour.

The ‘In The Arena’ events will take place at assorted venues around England & Wales and might be ideal for you and/or your men’s group to attend.


Every man encounters challenges in life’s arena. We often face uncertainties or difficulties that can test our integrity, resilience and character. But God has called us to live our lives with passion and perseverance, to run the race set before us and to run to win. 

“I run with purpose in every step.” 
1 Corinthians 9:26


To meet our challenges successfully we need to be prepared. We need to be trained, ready to deal with the problems or tough times that can affect our most important relationships, our work and our inner or spiritual life.


In the Arena’ is a men’s event that will share helpful strategies to strengthen and empower you for whatever challenges you face now or in the future.

Speakers Rob Parsons and Gerrit Bantjes will present biblical principles and insights they have seen work through their experience of both triumph and adversity. They will talk about critical areas of everyday life such as friendships, finance, character and career. Their encouragement will leave you better prepared to run life’s race.

Check-out the dates below and if one works, come and join a bunch of other guys, including some CVM team at one of the In The Arena venues.
