Battle Ready - Johnny Hunt Simulcast

J-Hunt Banner 2

A war is waging, a daily battle for our hearts, our minds and our souls. You are stuck behind enemy lines. Before you swore allegiance to Jesus, the enemy had nothing against you. Now a servant of the King, you are the primary target of an enemy bent on the destruction of you and your family.

Fortunately, God has given us the tools to be Battle Ready! But we have to take hold of them. He's given us armor, but we have to put it on… before the attacks begin. We can't afford to lose any more ground.

Join us and thousands of men as we suit up with the "whole armor of God" and prepare to face head on the spiritual warfare that rages within us and around us.

LifeWay is excited to partner with First Baptist Church of Woodstock, GA, for the third year in a row to bring you The Johnny Hunt Simulcast! The Johnny Hunt Men's Conference is an ongoing ministry of the First Baptist Church of Woodstock. Over the past 32 years, Pastor Hunt has seen thousands of men ministered to during this unique event each year. This year's theme is "Staying Dressed for Battle." He will teach three keynote sessions, and there will be two breakout sessions.

Live event will be February 3-4 at Rochester First Baptist. Too far or not a good day for you? Choose a closer event, or one on a different Saturday. The other Saturday locations will be shown from a recording in its entirety.
