Pursuit: Men’s Ministry

Home » Groups » Men’s Ministry

Men are constantly in pursuit of something, and today’s world is filled with distractions, wrong turns, and dangerous roads.  Our goal is to help men maintain a focus on Jesus and a path in pursuit of Biblical Manhood.  

Our Men’s Ministry provides a focus on these four Pursuits: 

  • Men Devoted to Jesus
    Matthew 16:24- Then Jesus said to his disciples, “If anyone wants to come after me, he must deny himself, take up his cross and follow me”.
  • Men Leading Courageously 
    Joshua 1:9- “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not be terrified or dismayed, for the Lord your god is with you wherever you go.”
  • Men Seeking Camaraderie
    Hebrews 10:24-25- “Lets consider how to encourage one another in love and good deeds, not abandoning our own meeting together, as is the habit of some people, but encourage one another, and all the more as you see the day drawing near.”
  • Men Walking in Integrity
    Proverbs 4:25-27- “Let your eyes look directly ahead.  And let your gaze be fixed straight in form of you.  Watch the path of your feet, and all your ways will be established.  Do not turn to the right or to the left; turn your foot from evil.”


Men spending time together is an essential part of creating and strengthening a community of men, and it is one of our 4 pursuits- Camaraderie.  We create regular opportunities to bring men together for strengthening our walk with Jesus and to have fun!

  • Men’s Connection Groups (5:30 AM Mondays & 7 PM Thursdays)
  • Monthly Men’s Breakfast (3rd Saturday of the month – 8 AM)
  • Quarterly Men’s social events
  • Periodic service projects
  • Annual Men’s Retreat – September
