Adult Men

The aim of our Men’s Life Groups is to engage the Word, the Spirit, and the body of Christ to become equipped for the work of the ministry to which God has called us. Through fellowship, accountability, Bible study, and prayer we are helping each other become the disciples of Jesus Christ we are called to be. We believe that, as God continues to change our character, we will have a greater impact in our families, the marketplace, and the world.
