Lynchburg conference draws thousands despite corona concerns

https://www.newsadvance.com/news/local/lynchburg-conference-draws-thousands-despite-corona-concerns/article_60f93675-b627-5619-b561-429381ed68c9.html

Thousands gathered for the annual Ignite Men’s Impact Weekend on Saturday morning, and the parking lot was teeming with people cooking meat, manning booths and playing a few spirited games of cornhole.

The sold-out conference, hosting speakers like Tim Tebow and Marcus Luttrell, was created to “help man take back their Biblical manhood.” With workshops centered around topics like self-defense, hunting, motorcycles and faith, the event sold more than 5,000 tickets.

To appease some concerns, Ignite offered a livestream of plenary sessions to ticket holders, and issued a statement on its website the organization is implementing recommendations from the Virginia Department of Health and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Robert Payton, of Stafford, said he was looking forward to “the words, some nuggets from God.”

“I had already registered,” Payton said. “And I’m not going to let the enemy keep me in the house in fear.”
