What makes a man? A strong heart and a lot of love.

You can go at life alone, but you won’t get that far. Men’s Ministries at Grace Bible Church are built to cultivate commitment to Christ and authentic community. We seize the day together.

The Men's Ministry at Grace Bible Church is founded on the idea that a sound church requires strong leadership from faithful men devoted to Jesus. We aspire to impact both our church and local community by first creating a culture that encourages biblical manhood. As a ministry, here are our core values and mission:

  • We will be strong on the inside, totally submitted and committed to Jesus, our Savior.
  • We will fully fulfill our personal roles as godly husbands, fathers, brothers, and servants.
  • We will be accountable to each other, walking sincerely in faith, shoulder to shoulder.
  • We aspire for Christ to reproduce himself through us, leaving a lasting spiritual legacy.
