I’m in awe of all God did at our first C3 Warriors Men’s
Night. It was definitely an Ephesians
experience. About a year ago God gave me a vision to raise up 100
warriors…. Men who would stand up, step up, step out and speak up for the cause
of Christ. I praise God for the women who God is using in our churches today to
make a difference, where would we be without them? But it’s time for the men to
step up and show strong leadership! We have been gathering as a prayer group on
Thursday mornings for about year and last night was our first Men’s Night for
the community.  Wow.  God moved. Lives were changed.  When we gave the altar call with no
heads bowed, all eyes open and everyone looking around what an experience to
see about 50 men come forward to receive Christ.  Then when the call was given to become a warrior we ran out
of room up front as about 700 men were up front and packed in the aisles making
a commitment to be a warrior for Christ. 
My prayer is that we are experiencing a “movement” not a
“monument”.  That this wasn’t just
a one time event but a movement with an eternal impact on our church and

Worship2Nearly 700 men came forward to commit to being a Warrior for Christ.

I want to thank my friend and NFL all pro Kevin Mawae for
coming and sharing from his heart a powerful message.  Also congrats to the guys who won the cornhole tournament.
That was a blast!

 Hey, if you live in the area and you couldn’t make it, it’s
not too late to be a part.  Our
next C3 Warrior Prayer Gathering is Thursday, July 22, 6am at C3 Church. We are
going to have Starbucks and Krispy Kreme donuts.  That’s a powerful combo: Starbucks, Krispy Kreme and the
power of the Holy Spirit! 🙂 Spread the word and let’s see what all God will do
in the hearts of men.  Love you

Mike F Mike Figueras was honored for being a faithful Warrior.

    Pastor Matt,
    Thank you for opening up this opportunity to be a part of the movement to the surrounding community. We ended up with 20+ warriors coming from Whitley Church! Please pass along our sincere thanks to the hundreds of volunteers that made the day such a success. Also big thanks to you and Kevin for bringing the truth unfiltered and to especially to Kevin for the autographed jersey! I’ll be wearing it to church this weekend and then it will be framed along with some other memorabilia from the first ever C3 Warriors Men’s Night! We need to discuss what it looks like to start a chapter at Whitley!
    Thanks again and stay strong my brothers!
    Grace & Peace

    It was such a great day; the fellowship before, God’s presence during and the life change at the end. I feel truly blessed and honored for the recognition given to me. It’s the love of GOD that moves us to serve. Thank you Pastor for having this event. Let the movement begin!

    Our first Men’s Night was off-the-chain and I have been up in the air all week. My favorite part: “the best is yet to come” – I heard a great c3Warrior say that once or twice 🙂
