What is men’s ministry? A men’s breakfast or wild game dinner? Oftentimes these events reach men because meat is on the menu!

It also includes opportunities for studying God’s Word, for mentoring and being mentored with accountability, for sharing their faith, and for serving.

Men need other men to speak into their lives, to cheer them on, to impart the courage to persevere, and to summon them to keep stepping up in life. Men need other men beside them in the struggle of life.
