I myself am convinced, my brothers, that you yourselves are full of goodness, complete in knowledge, and competent to instruct one another.

Romans 15.14

Ministry Goals

Devotion & Service to God

  • Grow men in their relationship with Christ
  • Encourage men to embrace their unique call in service to God
  • Build community (and communities) among men
  • Invite and include men not actively walking with Christ and not members of First Presbyterian – win men for Christ
  • Provide entry points for men that help reach other goals
  • Provide opportunities to model man-of-Christ living

There are opportunities for men of all ages to engage through a variety of settings in order to know, experience, and act on the love and power of Christ.  Our events are open to any man and are often comprised of men from other churches and denominations, drawn together by Christ, and the desire to know Him better.

Men’s Retreat | March 22-23, 2019

SPEAKER | Andy Hamer, pastor of Shepherd of the Hills Presbyterian Church and former staff member of First Pres.

After growing up in Iowa, I jumped at the chance to go to college in the Mountain West.  Four years at the University of Montana sealed my appreciation for skiing, hiking, and climbing – and I also squeezed in enough studying to earn a BA in English with a minor Spanish.  My faith in Jesus Christ also developed in college which gave me a passion to minister to my fellow students.  After graduation, my longtime friend Theresa and I were married and we headed to Boulder, CO for a college ministry position.

Following two years of working with CU students we headed to Winston-Salem, NC where I worked with students at Wake Forest University.  During our nine years there we enjoyed connecting with students, learned a lot about community, both earned master’s degrees, and had our two children (Kathleen and Caroline).

After graduating from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary I sought ordination in the PCUSA, and began searching for churches closer to family and the Mountain West.  We felt a connection with the Shepherd congregation and in early 2014 we accepted a call to ministry in their neighborhood.  We’ve loved living back in Colorado!  In our free time we enjoy hosting friends at our house, skiing, hiking, running, and road biking.
