2020: Destroying Strongholds



  • Over 50 Hours of counseling content
  • Share with family and friends
  • Focuses on equipping Christians to minister God’s Word to handle spiritual warfare

“Every day, a battle is being fought.
A battle that is very real, yet unseen.”
The Scriptures teach that there is an abundance of spiritual enemies seeking to influence our thoughts, affections, and priorities, and Scripture calls us not to ignorance, but to offense. Paul explained that, “the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ . . .”
