God has designed every man to be a leader, regardless of personality, upbringing, and circumstance. Actually, God would choose to USE every nuance and experience in our life to help develop us into the leaders He has designed us to be. Proverbs 27:17 tells us that “iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.” If we believe the Bible is the very breath and Word of God (and we certainly do), then we better get really good at living “life on life” with each other. In short, we need to learn how to live in community with one another as men, forming bands of brothers.
One way we do this is to simply get together. Once a month, we gather on the first Saturday at 7 am for Men’s Breakfast. We have a dedicated team of guys who show up early to grill the food and brew the coffee. By 7 am, we’re ready to dig in! We eat, chat about man stuff, watch a short primer video, then turn into our tables for an open conversation about what was introduced, always ending with prayer.
There is a community driven Bible study that takes place each week at the Safeway Starbucks 6am that is open to jump into. We are also developing Life Groups; small group settings based on either geographic location or affinity. If you are interested in being involved or helping to facilitate, contact Pastor Paul.
Our hope is that every man would find his place in the community and kingdom, never feeling isolated, but highly valued and empowered.
