Armor of God Spiritual Briefing – Arming Men on the Power of Virtue

6:45pm – 8:30pm

Armor of God was created by laity with the direct purpose to arm men to be the spiritual leaders that God designed them to be in their homes, workplace and Churches.


As God calls us to be spiritual leaders, understanding how to live a life of virtue and what graces the virtues bring us is essential. In addition, for every vice that we encounter a virtue can be linked to offset that. Please come and hear from Bishop Kevin Rhoades as he arms men on the power of virtue.
