Men – Christ Church at Grove Farm


CCGF Ministry to Men exists to BUILD High-Impact Men (HIM) who stand together, submit to the authority of Scripture, and strive to fulfill their God-ordained roles of service and leadership in their families, the Church, and their communities. 


God’s Word stands firm throughout the centuries.


1 Corinthians 16:13 – 14 says, Be on your guard; Stand Firm in the faith; Be courageous; Be strong. Do everything in love.


This is the Bible’s definition of being a man and what he does. Be deliberate. Be intentional about growing in your faith. Be a leader, the leader you’ve dreamed that you can be. Take responsibility for your own spiritual growth and that of others.

Iron sharpens iron as it hits together in the hands of the blacksmith. Brothers, we need to be molded and shaped together by our Master Craftsman, Father God. Be stronger godly husbands and fathers. Get in a group to hold you to growth in our Lord.  Proverbs 27:17 says, “As iron sharpens iron,
so, one person sharpens another.”  Sharpen a brother. Ask a brother to sharpen you!
