How good and pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity. (Psalm 133:1) It is the goal of the Men’s Ministry to provide opportunities for fellowship and service for men of all ages. Our meetings are informal, informational and there is something available for all men, regardless of the amount of church experience (great or small). Men are given the opportunity to serve Christ, to serve one another, to serve the Church and grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ.

PROVERBS 27:17 “As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.

Men’s Ministry events provide opportunities for men to establish friendships, fellowship with other believers, minister to one another, and have fun. Various events are planned and organized throughout the year. Each of these events requires preparation and opportunities for each man for service and participation. Take the first step and participate; the Lord will do the rest!

2024 All Church Conference
Becoming A Discipler

Discipleship begins by paying attention to God’s work within our own lives as we respond in enthusiastic obedience to all the Lord longs to accomplish. As God works within, we in turn build spiritually into other believers, that they too may grow in Christlikeness.

Discipling involves effectively passing on what we have learned in our own faith-walk. It is developing others in Christ according to all God has established within us personally.
