Making disciples starts with the pursuit of relationships, not just participation in programs. Relationships are cultivated through various groups and flourish while pursuing authentic community and growing in the knowledge and application of God’s Word.

Men's Groups

Our weekly groups give men an opportunity to build biblical friendships with other men as well as grapple with biblical answers to life’s challenges. Be a part of this growing group of men as we devote ourselves to Jesus and each other, enjoy God’s presence in our lives, endeavor to love each other well, and learn what it means to lead out in grace and truth in Jesus’ name.

Woodsmen Ministry

The Woodsmen Ministry is an outdoor-based small group ministry across the southeast. These are places for men to connect through a shared interest such as fishing, golf, basketball, disc golf, and more. For many men, the outdoors is a safe place to spend time with others and find rest. Through Woodsmen, we’ll create spaces for men to find friendships, have fun doing something they’re passionate about, and encounter God’s love.
