The Men's Ministry exists to build up the men of Grace Baptist Church in order that they may magnify the glory of God.

Our vision is to see every man grow in the character and skills necessary to sacrificially lead in the home, community, workplace and church.

Weekly Opportunities

Men's Prayer Forum
Tuesday's, 6am-7:30am in room C115
Leader: Peter Beers
This group is open to all men who need prayer or want to develop accountability and discipline in their own prayer life as we gather to pray for the needs of our church fellowship.  Stop by briefly on the way to work or stay for the hour.  I desire then that in every place the men should pray 1 Tim. 2:8a

Men's Grace Group
Tuesday's, 7:45pm-9:30pm in room D222
Leader: Rick Harding
The Tuesday night men’s Bible study is a fellowship of men who wish to grow in their walk with God and in their knowledge of the Scriptures. We typically study entire books of the bible with an emphasis on application. We start at 8 pm in order to allow those who attend time to have dinner with their families.

Men's Grace Group
Wednesday's, 6am-7am in room D121
Leader: John Lentz
In this group we study God’s Word and try to understand its meaning and how we can apply it to our lives. We choose a book and break it into chapters and assign leaders. The unique part about the group is that it is led by all of us not only 1 or 2 people.  The group consists of young and old and all are welcome.

Men's Grace Group 
Wednesday's, 6:30pm-8pm in room C116
Leader: Gustavo Durruty
In our group we collectively choose a book out of the Bible and study its full meaning as the Holy Spirit leads us, while seeking to incorporate the message of God into our daily lives.  Our goal is to become more like Jesus our Savior.  We pray to be leaders within our families, in the work place and in our community.

Men's Grace Group
Thursday's, 8:30am at the Leaders home
Leader: Rich Petrella
We are studying Desiring God by John Piper. We take time sharing how God is working in our lives and the changes we want to make in ourselves.

Men's Grace Group
Every other Saturday, 7am in room D222
Leader: Richard Lee
We meet bi-weekly on Saturday mornings to go over selected books and scriptures to study how we can be the best man for God in our marriage, our homes and our church. The goal of our time is to raise up godly men that can be leaders in the body of Christ here at Grace.

Action Groups

Shared interest -> Shared Life -> Shared Faith

Most men would rather do something than just sit around and talk. When men get together to do something they enjoy it gives an opportunity to build relationships. In the context of those relationships, men have the opportunity to strengthen one another in their Christian faith and lead one another to a deeper walk with Christ. So then, the ultimate purpose for Action Groups is that men would build one another up in Christ. The shared activity is just a means to that end.
