"As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another." Proverbs 27:17
The purpose of our men's ministry is to help each other become more and more fully alive in Christ and be faithful and fruitful in what God has called us to. Life has its challenges and we are better together!
"Research shows most men over 30 have no close friends." At GPC, we want to challenge that statistic! Proverbs 18:24 says, "A man of many companions (casual buddies) may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother." We desire to provide opportunities for men to develop much needed friendships for support, encouragement, & accountability.
The following are opportunities to get involved...
Men's small groups: Along with our couples and mixed groups, our men's groups provide opportunities for guys to develop friendships and help each other grow. Currently, we offer three men's groups that meet at various times to check out. One meets on Wednesday mornings at 6:30am, one meets on Wednesday nights at 6:30pm and one meets on Saturday mornings at 6:30am.
Along with these three men's groups, Pastor Bob is leading a bunch of men through a study called, "Authentic Manhood" on Saturday mornings from 7:00am to 8:15am. To find out more about this study, email Bob at
Monthly Men's Breakfast: Each month, our men's ministry sponsors an 'all guys' get together on Saturday morning. This month large group time helps us meet other guys outside of our normal groups and activities. We typically invite a special speaker to come share their story with us and have one or two of our own guys share their testimony as well.
Men's 1-2-1 discipleship: If you're interested in meeting with another guy to go over the basics of the Christian life, we encourage you to take advantage of this discipleship opportunity. You will typically meet about six times with your mentor as he gets to know you and shares with you the essentials regarding the Bible and how to grow stronger in your walk with God.
Men's & Couples Retreats: Along with our small groups and quarterly events, each fall we either host an annual men's retreat to get away for some rest and renewal with other men or a Marriage Weekend Retreat. For our Men's Retreats, we usually go to one of the local retreat spots about 1-2 hours away from our church campus for the weekend.
Celebrate Recovery Support: There are times when we need some extra help and encouragement to overcome the hurts, hang ups and/or harmful habits that develop in our lives. If you need support in living out your 12 step Christ-centered recovery program contact Rick Hust at
Raising Up The Next Generation: As men, we want to play an active role in the development of our sons and daughters as they develop into young men and women. We offer a study for men to help equip them to play an active role in leading their children into adulthood. This includes providing the tools to create lasting memories with our kids through important celebrations along the way.
Sports and Recreation Opportunities: All guys need to find something that is just plain fun. We desire the men of GPC to have opportunities to connect with other men with similar recreational interests. If it is fun for you, there are other guys that would like it too!
If you are interested in one or more of the above, let us know! Let's help each other build stronger relationships with God and other men.
"Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds." Hebrews 10:23-24
Upcoming Events for Guys:
DEFINING AUTHENTIC MANHOOD
Select Saturdays from 9:00am - 10:30am (5 weeks). "Defining Manhood" is part of the "Authentic Manhood" study. This study will start back up when this season of social distancing wraps up. We've all heard "Be a man." From God's perspective what does that mean? Join us as we define & discuss what God had in mind for masculinity. From the Scriptures, what we unpack might surprise you. Dads, your sons in High School are welcome to join us. Email Pastor Bob at for group info.
