As the Premier League kicks off this weekend, former Portsmouth player Linvoy Primus is calling all men to come to Stoke City Stadium for a very different kind of gathering.
Linvoy will be one of the main speakers at ‘We Are Men United’ at the home of Stoke City FC, May 27, 2017, when he’ll share his story of how he discovered Jesus Christ as his Lord and Saviour while playing for Portsmouth FC.
The aim of the event is to gather, equip and inspire a nation of men to live for God’s glory with fearless faith. The day will also feature inspirational talks from world champion boxer Nigel Benn, and evangelist Andrew Palau, worship from Noel Robinson and Martin Smith and faith-building preaching from Pastor Agu Irukwu, Paul Scanlon, Paul Lloyd and Anthony Bostock.
Linvoy, who is the joint founder of Christian charity Faith and Football, says he’s extremely excited to be part of an event of such importance: The event will gather, inspire and equip a nation of men to live for God’s glory.
We Are Men United will feature inspirational talks from world champion boxer Nigel Benn and evangelist Andrew Palau, worship from Martin Smith and Noel Robinson and faith-building preaching from Paul Scanlon, Paul Lloyd and Anthony Bostock. They’re bringing men from all walks of life together in the stadium to lift the name of Jesus high.
We Are Men United is a dream in our hearts and a moment that will birth a movement. We invite you to come and be part of it. “As much as we see the excitement at a match when your team scores I think this is going to be far more significant. You can see football and the way people celebrate is a shadow of what we’re going to experience when we’re there in May.”
Linvoy is also excited at the impact ‘We Are Men United’ will have on those who wouldn’t typically go to church:
“People who would normally view church in one particular way are going to see something totally different at ‘We Are Men United.’ Being with thousands of men who are passionate for Christ will be life-changing. Church isn’t about a building, it’s about the person of Jesus, who has done everything for us.”
“Get yourself along to something that will be unique. I think it’s going to be the launch of many around the country, even around the world and to be part of something in its early days is something special.”
