The mission of Messiah’s Men’s Ministry is to engage men of all generations to develop Christ-centered disciples, leaders and mentors by encouraging them to grow in their personal relationship with Christ and with one another. As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another. Proverbs 27:17

When men gather together spending time in God’s Word, brotherly connection, and spiritual growth, they are strengthened in a common spirit to build a personal relationship with Christ Jesus and each other.

Meet and Eat

Our men’s breakfasts and barbecues are a great chance for you to enjoy a great meal, take time to catch up with friends, and meet new ones.

Every Man A Warrior

Few men feel equipped to face the challenges of life they fight on a daily basis. Every Man a Warrior helps men succeed in life as they learn to listen to God and put His Word into practice. This course deals with real life struggles and how God has solutions. While other men walk alongside, you will be equipped with the essential skills to fight and win the battles of life.

Discipleship

Bible Studies, campouts, and retreats (like Wild at Heart) are some of the great ways for men to gather and grow spiritually.
