Ex-footballer’s new goal is to boost the faith of men

With the Premier League season underway, former Portsmouth player Linvoy Primus is calling on all men to come to Stoke City’s Britannia Stadium for a very different kind of gathering.

The former defender, who also played for Charlton Athletic, Barnet and Reading, will be one of the main speakers at ‘We Are Men United’ at the home of Stoke City FC, on 27th May 2017.

During the event, Primus will share his story of how he discovered Jesus Christ as his Lord and Saviour, while playing for Portsmouth FC.

The star said: “The aim of the event is to gather, equip and inspire a nation of men to live for God’s glory with fearless faith.”

The day will also feature inspirational talks from world champion boxer Nigel Benn and evangelist Andrew Palau, worship from Noel Robinson and Martin Smith and faith-building preaching from Pastor Agu Irukwu, Paul Scanlon, Paul Lloyd and Anthony Bostock.

Primus, who is the joint founder of Christian charity Faith and Football, expressed enthusiasm at being part of an event of such importance.

“As much as we see the excitement at a match when your team scores I think this is going to be far more significant,” he said. “You can see football and the way people celebrate is a shadow of what we’re going to experience when we’re there in May.”

Primus is also excited at the impact ‘We Are Men United’ will have on those who wouldn’t typically go to church.

“People who would normally view church in one particular way are going to see something totally different at ‘We Are Men United’, he added. “Being with thousands of men who are passionate for Christ will be life-changing. Church isn’t about a building, it’s about the person of Jesus, who has done everything for us.

“Get yourself along to something that will be unique. I think it’s going to be the launch of many around the country, even around the world and to be part of something in its early days is something special.”
