Battle Ready NC 2019

March 29, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - March 31, 2019 @ 4:00 pm


[column width=”1/1″ last=”true” title=”3 DAYS TO BECOME BATTLE READY” title_type=”single” animation=”none” implicit=”true”]

Men from all over the Carolinas will be gathering at Battle Ready NC with a goal of spending time with other men doing “crazy guy stuff”, but also to grow in our quest for authentic, Godly manhood. Life is a battlefield. We would never send a soldier into battle without getting trained and we always give our soldiers a break from the battlefield. Our passion is to train and equip men to fight the temptations of life and firmly ground them in the Word of God so that they stand strong as men.
