In addition to serving in all the regular ministries of Calvary Baptist Church, there are also some ministries geared especially for men. These include...
Men of God Conference: This is an all day conference that 20-30 men from our church attend every year in Bellefontaine, Ohio. The conference features a main speaker who shares from Gods Word on a given topic in 3 or 4 different main sessions. There is a special music group that is invited to both perform and lead worship for the day, and there are also many different "breakout sessions" to choose from. Lunch is provided and we also stop somewhere on the way home and have dinner together. Its always a great day!
Mens Events: Special events include things like an occasional Golf outing, a mens breakfast, a Father-Son campout, or whatever gives us an opportunity to encourage one another to make following Christ our first priority as men.
Church Work Days: Several times a year our men take a Saturday and work on miscellaneous projects around our church building. Painting, Landscaping, odd jobs, etc. give our men an opportunity to serve the church family in a practical way and also to connect with one another by working together. We finish the day with a pizza, a coke, and some time of fellowship!
Accountability Groups: These are small groups of guys that meet Saturday mornings for the purpose of sharing prayer requests, and keeping one another accountable for our personal Bible reading and prayer habits. We also read solid Christian books together, and encourage one-another in our Christian walk. Groups meet for about 1 hour each week. Check out some sample accountability questions... www.calvarybyesville.org/questions.htm
TEAM6: TEAM6 is the discipleship ministry of the Youth & Young Adult department. This group meets every Sunday afternoon to work through a discipleship workbook, and read books about theology, the church, and manhood as we encourage one another to both follow Jesus and to help other young men follow Jesus. TEAM6 proclaims the truth that "real men don't make excuses, they keep comittments". The TEAM6 comittments are...
