What makes a man? A strong heart and a lot of love.
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.
To support these goals and encourage spiritual development, Men’s Ministry provides several quality resources and programs, broadly grouped into four categories. Take a look and decide which best fits you, then dive right in. Wherever you are in life, whatever you’re bringing to the table – good, bad, and ugly – we’re ready for you.
We regularly have gatherings, retreats, backpack trips, and other interest-based events, all designed to draw us back to the adventure of life. Let’s live it!
We focus on equipping men in their biblical calling to be godly husbands, fathers, brothers, co-workers, and leaders in the church. We all have something to learn.
- Band of Brothers
We connect with each other through men’s small groups and one-on-one accountability relationships. Friendship and the freedom to be honest – that makes a healthy pack.
We look for opportunities to give ourselves away for the sake of the Gospel. We take Christ’s great commission seriously and participate in outreach and missions.
