Mens Group

SouthBrook Mens Group is a place to get Oriented  

An Oriented man grounds his life and actions on three things:

His Identity, his environment and his mission.  He knows…

1.    Who he is.  In Christ we are beloved Sons of the Father

2.    Where he is.  An oriented man has “eyes to see and ears to hear” what is going on around him

3.    The good that God is up to.  He looks for the good that God is doing in his life and through his life.

 

SBMG Mission – We hope to see the hearts of men so foundationally settled, so well trained, so well equipped and so well engaged that when evil dare raise its head, beloved sons will know what to do and do it well!

Our community values - Belief that the heart is good, a persons glory is perused not their sin.   It’s a lifestyle where lives intersect.  We pray, play, worship, eat, and share. It cannot be contained in a day, time or place.  It’s a safe and trusting place.  It will be messy, change and disruption are necessary and it must be missional!

Join us on Wednesdays at 6 AM or 7 PM.
