CVM Northern Ireland Reaches to New Levels

A FORMER Premier League footballer helped launch CVM in Ballymena earlier this month as part of a growing Christian men's movement in Northern Ireland. The CVM NI Director, Spud Murphy, hosted the event with esteemed worship leader Ryan Griffith and former manager of Ballymena FC Roy Walker.

During the launch, an interview with former Newcastle United and Chelsea defender Gavin Peacock proved a pivotal moment of inspiration for the 130 men. The ex footballer, now leading a church in Canada, set a challenge for the CVM supporters on what it looks like to become a Biblical man.

CVMs Spud Murphy said: "Gavin delivered a belter of a challenge drawing on some really key scriptures for men today. It was truly inspiring and perfect for the event. Roy Walker went on to explore what it means to be a Premier League Christian. He explained how Jesus never gives up on us despite our shortcomings and our temptation to think we can never live up to God's Premier League standard. We had a cracking day and lives were changed."

The men of Ballymena will now embark upon a 10 month "Cracking the Code" tour, which starts on Monday 17 September at West Church, Ballymena. For more information visit click here
