ABOUT MEN’S MINISTRY

Our Men’s Ministry exists to live everyday captivated and changed by Jesus by loving and serving effectively.

Our desire is to encourage men through godly fellowship and discipleship opportunities to become servant leaders who make disciples for the Kingdom of God. We care greatly about the biblical leadership role of men in the home and in the Body of Christ. In order to lead effectively, we must first lay our hearts and minds at the feet of Jesus, and follow Him. Second, we must carry out the Great Commission, first in our homes, and then in the world around us. We do this by loving people and serving them with absolute clarity of heart, mind and soul.
