You were not designed to live discouraged, defeated, or depressed. Life is full of trials, troubles, and tests; but “in Christ” we can thrive! Paul went through countless difficulties, yet he tells us we are MORE THAN CONQUERORS (Rom. 8:37). Triumph in itself would be great, but this verse says we are more than conquerors.

Grace offers limitless possibilities to the saints. We must stop trying to do what’s already been done, and stop trying to be what God says we already are. Instead of asking and begging for what God has already given, we must appropriate our advantages and blessings by faith. Throughout this Advance we will learn the way of victory from Scriptural overcomers.

God is now grooming His army on earth to rule and reign throughout eternity. You must be willing to reject your limiting beliefs in order to embrace God’s provision for an overcoming life IN His Son. Instead of feeling overwhelmed by circumstances, you can learn to overcome. Come with an open heart and align yourself with the amazing truth that you are more than a conqueror.

Harold Vaughan

WOW! What an incredible day yesterday! My newest son-in-law and one of the men from our Church – all of us were powerfully convicted, challenged, and moved yesterday!

Thanks be to God for His indescribable gifts given to us through Jesus Christ our Lord! Gifts clearly displayed at the Advance for the Glory of God our Father, the praise of His Son, the testifying of the Holy Spirit and the building up of the body of Christ!

Best Advance ever for me!!! God taught me so much!!

2 saved this morning!!!

What an awesome Prayer Advance, I’m so glad nothing hindered me from being able to go this year. Your speakers were the best and I took quite a bit away from the meetings. I was truly blessed.

It was an awesome Prayer Advance! David Gibbs rings the bell every time. We were encouraged, blessed, rebuked, reproved and challenged. Thanks for being available to God!

Along with my Pastor I just attended my first Advance....Soul Shaking!!! for sure. 750 strong Christian men praising and glorifying our God whose presence abounded throughout. If a man didn't  leave lifted, renewed, informed and carrying a desire to be more Brother, you need to be checked for a pulse.

The Advance has been such a help to our men. God has clearly spoken to all our hearts, and helped both of the men that came with me. The spiritual growth in the past 40 hours has been visible.

Looking forward to what the Lord has in store for us at the 2020 Advance as we again meet to praise and glorify him.
