Changed men change our church, community, and the world.

In the beginning, God gave Adam the responsibility to lead, protect, and provide. In Genesis 3, Adam failed in this responsibility by allowing Satan into the Garden, which brought the curse of sin and death. In cursing the world, God held Adam responsible. Adam’s failed leadership is why we see the chaos of sin and death that dominates the world as we know it.

At some point, every problem in our homes, churches, and communities lies at the feet of failed male leadership. Where the chaos of sin reigns, a man failed to take dominion.

What’s the answer? The gospel. The goodness that there is a man who did not fail to lead, protect, and provide for His bride, the church. Men must reclaim dominion by being redeemed by the Man, Jesus. We trust that he was the Man we could never be. He has taken the brunt of the curse for our sin by enduring God’s wrath on the cross. In Him, we’re free from Adam’s failure and possess the power to accomplish what Adam could not. In Christ, the Spirit empowers us to lead, protect, and provide sacrificially.

What does it mean to be a man following the Man? That’s the question we tackle in our men’s ministry.
We meet on the first Saturday of every month at 10:00 AM. Each meeting includes teaching as well as specific assignments for the next month. We’re challenged to engage in Bible reading and prayer. We’re tasked with specific leadership assignments in our families, work, and school. We seek accountability from other men to stay on course and be men following the Man!

The monthly gathering is for men from middle school through all ages of adulthood. However, know that the challenges will be for adult men.
