It takes more than physical strength to win a spiritual battle. You will need inner strength, character, and endurance, which don’t come by accident. No, the road to victory begins with a decision to be great—as a man of God, as a leader, as a husband. Once you’ve made the decision, the next step is training—training from the best, from those who know how to win.

At the 2018 Men’s Advance, held March 8-10 in Woodland Park, Colorado, get the training you need for the destiny and purpose for which you were created. You will be equipped with tools to help you win in every area of your life.

The speaker lineup for this year’s event is powerful. Andrew Wommack will be joined again by sportscaster James Brown, former host of Fox NFL Sunday and current host of The NFL Today on CBS. You’ll also hear from retired NFL head coach Tony Dungy, a New York Times bestselling author and current analyst for NBC’s Football Night in America.

The event cost is $55 per person and includes four hearty meals. There’s no chance you’ll go hungry during this event—physically or spiritually!

Become the winner God created you to be. A win from within doesn’t come by accident. This is your opportunity to train for greatness.

"First Baptist of Ivy Gap"

"A poignant comedy about the secrets and dreams of six women of the Ivy Gap First Baptist Church during WWII and the Vietnam era."
During WWII, a group of women gather at church to roll bandages and plan the church's 75th anniversary. Twenty-five years later, the "First Baptist Six" reunite. With humor and pathos, these six very different women find comfort, forgiveness and redemption in one another.

What people say:

"A wonderful new play from the pen of Ron Osborne...a warm and respectable story about six strong and resourceful characters ... very, very funny, all the more because it relies on deep human emotions to bring forth the humor ...will be compared to Steel Magnolias, but forget steel; these mountain magnolias are pure gold ... humor, drama, warmth and six of the most wonderful characters you'll see — tasty comfort for the playgoer's soul." — Bristol Herald-Courier

"First Baptist of Ivy Gap has drama, tragedy, love, loss and redemption with plenty of comedy too." —

"A beautiful Southern comedy that will keep you in stitches beginning to end." — Elizabethton Star

Jo Koy has come a long way from his modest beginnings at a Las Vegas coffee house. As one of today's vastly growing stand-¬up comedians, Koy sells-¬out comedy clubs and theaters across the nation with his infectious, explosive energy onstage. The comedian pulls inspiration from his family, specifically his son, who inspires humor across all boundaries.
In 2005, Koy had the "opportunity of a lifetime," when he performed on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. He became one of a select few comics to receive a standing ovation on the show. Since then, Koy has had two highly-¬rated and successful comedy specials on Comedy Central, Don't Make Him Angry and Lights Out. In 2017, Koy released his 3rd comedy special, Jo Koy: Live from Seattle as a Netflix Original.
