Men's Ministry

Breakfast & Bible Study

The more time we spend with good men, the better man we become. A men's group provides community, connection and accountability and is one of the most powerful investments you can make in yourself. We meet and bond over eggs, pancakes and Bible study, but it does not stop there - from work to relationships, this will affect every part of your life.
