Men

Equipping men with biblical tools to love Jesus Christ and connect with each other

About Men’s Ministry

The heartbeat of our men’s ministry is to point you toward a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ and equip you to reach that goal. We encourage men from all walks of life to let us help you find a group, plug in, and dig deeply into Scripture without fear of being put on the spot. If you’ve ever wondered whether God’s Word has anything meaningful to say to you, let us join you on your journey toward the answer.
