Satan is out to get us, yet we have victory in Jesus Christ. On September 15-16, pastors and church leaders gathered for Empowered Conference. Dr. Chuck Lawless spoke on spiritual warfare in a time of crisis, and the event included a panel discussion with SBCV pastors. This topic is applicable to ministry in the midst of our current reality of COVID, political unrest, racial tensions, and more.
