STANLEY––In these dark and troubled times, being godly is more important than ever.

And with that in mind, it’s time once again for the “Greater Purpose of a Godly Man” conference at the South Gastonia Church of God, according to church spokesman Bill Ward of Stanley. A noted photographer, computer instructor and gospel music singer, Ward on Wednesday told The Herald all about this year’s installment of the annual free event.

He said the conference is scheduled for 1-4 p.m., this Saturday, April 23. Appropriately enough, that’s St. George’s Day, and the speakers will tell you how to slay the dragons of selfishness, pride, envy and other vices. You’ll learn how to “put on the full armour of God,” as St. Paul tells us in his Epistle to the Ephesians, and how to be a better man, husband and father. Light refreshments will be provided. Everything happens in the church’s adjacent Victory Christian Academy Gymnasium at 310 Carolina Ave. in Gastonia.

“‘The Greater  Purpose of a Godly Man’ is a conference for men, focused on connecting them with their purpose and direction with God, family and community,” Ward informed.

He added that speakers include Judge Craig Collins, State Sen. Ted Alexander, Chad Hawkins (a veteran of chief positions in the Cherryville and Belmont police departments; now a Republican candidate for Gaston County sheriff), Rev. Claude Williams (chief operating officer of the Wingate Institute for Biblical Studies), Stanley Police Department Officer T.J. Sanders, Stanley Mayor Steven Denton, Deacon Robert Rucker and musical guest Adam Beard. WBTV Chief Meteorologist Al Conklin will deliver the welcoming address.

The speakers, said Ward, will impart their inspirational “messages to attendees by addressing the aspects of their spiritual lives as they relate to their professional, family, community and church lives.”
