The Men's Ministry at Christ Church is dedicated to making fully devoted followers of Christ by building men of integrity, intimacy, identity, and influence. In order to accomplish this, we strive to provide opportunities for Worship, Service, Sharing our Faith, Fellowship, and Discipleship.

Those five purposes (worship, service, sharing our faith, fellowship, & discipleship) are the reason for our ministry. The Great Commandment (found in Matthew 22:37-38) and The Great Commission (found inMatthew 28:18-20) direct us to love God, love our neighbors, make disciples, participate in fellowship, and teach & be taught. 


These concepts are central to this ministry and drive all we do.

Men’s Breakfast
The year is 2019. God’s Word tells us, “Be on your guard; Stand firm in the faith; Be courageous; Be strong. Do everything in love” (1 Corinthians 16:13, 14)

This year our speakers at the Men’s Breakfast are going to be leading us in these things. We will also be given resources in being a godly husband and father. You are the head of your household and responsible for yourself and your family. Be deliberate. Learn about your own faith and lead your family in powerful living in Jesus Christ. Learn to be a man worth following. Bring your son, a brother a buddy or just come. Breakfast is from
8:00 - 10:00 am in the Barn at CCGF and is free. Bring your Bible. Donations are accepted.
