Going Against The Grain mens events launched

CVM are launching a new series of regional men’s days called Going Against The Grain, seeking to tackle what it means to live as a Christian man today.

Based on a (soon to be released) book of the same name, the events will examine how men can radically discover the call on their lives to be Christian men today, using examples of characters from the Bible who went against the grain and not only lived incredible lives but turned the world upside down.
The Going Against the Grain book, written by Nathan Blackaby, will be launched on 24 February 2018 at the first of the men’s days in Portsmouth and Battersea, SW London. It will be available to attendees of all the venues listed at a heavily discounted price.
