“Be on your guard, stand firm in the faith, be a man of courage, be strong; do everything in love. ” – 1 Corinthians 16:13-14
Our Men’s Ministry exists to encourage, challenge, and develop men into becoming life-long seekers of the Kingdom of God. We believe that God has called men to be:
- Courageous leaders in their homes
- Courageous leaders in their workplace
- Courageous leaders in their church
The Men’s Small Group is currently combined with the Women’s Study and meets each Friday night to share a meal, spend time studying the Scriptures, encouraging one another, learning, and praying for each other.
Time: Dinner 6:00 / Study 7:00pm
Where: Room 208
During the summer, the men meet each Thursday in a more informal setting, usually at a nearby restaurant, for a more directed talk on sharing life issues and individual topics of concern. Also, time is spent praying for one another and exchanging prayer requests.
Time: 7:00pm to 8:15pm
Once a year, usually in early summer, all the men from the young adult ministry and up journey together for a two-day retreat at Ironwood Christian Camp in Newberry Springs, CA. The retreat gives an opportunity for the OVBC men to spend time worshiping, sharing in fellowship, hearing some great messages from guest speakers, and just having some good old-fashioned fun. Camp activities include swimming, archery, shooting, hiking, climbing, and even some human foosball. And of course, some amazing food (who doesn’t like an all you can eat tri-tip dinner?).
Date: See Calendar
Time: Friday to Saturday
Where: Ironwood Christian Camp in Newberry Springs, CA.
