The Men’s Ministries of First Church, as all ministries should be, are based on the Great Commandment and the Great Commission. The ministries’ purpose is to help provide the tools to bring each man to a passion for God and be a man after God's own heart.

In all of our venues—Bible study, prayer breakfast, prayer wall, speaker meetings, work days, fellowship, conferences—we emphasize the vertical connection between us and God and the horizontal connection between each other and between us and the church community (as a whole and in small groups). Thus, the completion of the cross.

As men become comfortable in their relationship with Christ and more mature in their faith, our hope is that they will take on church leadership positions using the spiritual gifts God has given them, and that they would lead courageously. The Church—and our world—want and need more “Lion of Judah” men.

Saturday, October 21

8:30 AM-4:30 PM in Keith Jones Hall

Guest Speaker: Rev. Tom Walsh

When facing trying times we might be tempted to exert more control. Straining at this effort can discourage and exhaust us, and in time cause our souls to wither. Why not trust God to do the heavy lifting? Jesus promises that his “yoke is easy and his burden is light,” and yours can be, too. This one-day retreat for men will provide encouragement, strength and hope for our souls for the struggles of everyday life.

There is a registration fee of $35, which can be made online or collected at the time of the event.
