In the Arena Event

Post image

There are many arenas of life and in each one men will face uncertainties or difficulties that can test our integrity, resilience and character. But God has called us to live our lives with perseverance, to run the race set before us and to run to win.

In the Arena is a men’s event where we will share with you helpful strategies to strengthen and empower you. Discover the importance of preparation and training that enables you to survive the tough times that can affect your most important relationships, work and inner or spiritual life.

Join Philip Jinadu and Gerrit Bantjes as they explore practical drills that will help you through everyday life.
