Men's Ministry

I myself am convinced, my brothers and sisters, that you yourselves are full of goodness, filled with knowledge and competent to instruct one another.
Romans 15:14

ministry goals

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 2021

March 19-20

Retreat begins Friday night 7pm
Reconvene on Saturday morning and be finished by noon
The 2021 retreat will emanate from Winston-Salem, leveraging video conference magic with some in-person opportunities available.  No road trip up the mountains, you get to sleep in your own bed, a bargain at $15, but still chockful of teaching, worship, fellowship, and fun.

If you are part of a small group that would like to experience the retreat together (even virtually), round up your buddies and everyone indicate that on their registration. Register today!
