About Men's Life Groups

What does it mean to be a man? At what point does a boy become a man? Is it determined by achievements, possessions, or a particular age? No, true manhood is measured by character, stature and spiritual strength. The Men’s Life Groups seeks to equip men to be godly leaders in every arena of life. Men who are R.E.A.L., who Reject passivity, Expect a greater reward, God’s reward, Accept responsibility and Lead courageously to the glory of God, will experience God’s best in their lives. Men are the primary influencers in their homes, communities, workplaces and churches. Because this is true, we offer short-term studies, accountability groups, breakfast gatherings and special events throughout the year. Our primary men’s short-term life groups are Chosen to Lead and Men’s Fraternity, details below. However, we have other life groups that meet at various days and times. Click the link below to search the men's life groups.

Joining a life group has never been easier. Using our interactive tools you can search by location, day of the week, and more.
