Men spend time in prayer

God’s love was all that was needed at The People’s Cathedral yesterday.

Removed from all the partying, music and drinking found at Republic Bank Grand Kadooment, hundreds of men gathered at the Bishop’s Court Hill, St Michael church for their annualmen’s conference.

As was the case in previous years, dozens of men from all walks of life and ages gathered in the church’s Upper Room for prayer, testimony and worship.

Organiser Michael Goddard told THE NATION this was the 17th year the Kadooment alternative for men had been held.

And from small beginnings with just 35 men, Goddard said the conference had grown to an annual event, attracting hundreds of men looking to worship on and share stories of how Jesus affected their lives.

“This conference has impacted a whole lot of lives. People come here and we share what is happening in the lives of men,” he said.

“We, as Christian men, we don’t talk a lot, but you would find if you stay here, you would hear some stories they would not share anywhere else,” he added.

Goddard, a veteran journalist, said his current ministry was bringing men to Christ.

In a brief testimony, Goddard said he had been in the horse racing industry for over 35 years, and so could understand the temptations men could face as they sought to maintain their Christian walk.

Some of the men shared their testimony on how God had led them through diseases such as pancreatic cancer and other illnesses. (AD)
