Church hosts MMA event, pastor says Jesus would support

If you like punches, kicks and body slams along with your sermons, then the New Season Church in Hiram, Georgia, is the place for you.

Last Friday night, hundreds of people turned out for “Fight Club Night” to watch a card of mixed martial arts bouts. Pastor Steve Flockhart says the fights are a metaphor for “fighting for your marriage, fighting for your children and fighting for things that really matter in life.”

The event is served up with barbeque and a healthy dose of the gospel. It is a unique way to bring in the faithful. When asked what would Jesus say about MMA in the church?

Reverend Flockhardt said, “I think Jesus would say this is an amazing event and it’s gonna be awesome!”
