Men’s Ministry

SBC's Men's Ministry is about creating opportunities for men to build Christ-centered relationships. It's about people. It's about helping men build loving, encouraging relationships with other people and with God. Men have an important role in the church and are called by God to strive for lives defined by integrity, intimacy, and intentionality.

Men’s Summer Golf League

Every other Thursday night beginning May 12

Weissinger Hills in Shelbyville

Cost: $20 per night for 9 holes.

Hi, Men...... Just wanted everyone to know that I have set up our Thursday night Men's Golf League at Weissinger Hills again this year. We will meet every other Thursday night beginning May 12 through September.

The dates reserved are:  5/12, 5/26, 6/9, 6/23, 7/7, 7/21, 8/4, 8/18, 9/1 and 9/18.  That would be ten evenings.

The cost is the same $20 per night to play 9 holes.  (Weissinger is undergoing some needed improvements, so the 9 holes are scattered throughout the course at this time.  That will change over the course of the summer and possibly get to us back to playing either the front or back 9 before September ends.)

The GOOD NEWS is that we will be able to meet together before we play like we did before COVID hit in 2020.  Tee times will start at 5:20pm, so plan to warm up before then and we’ll gather for prayer at the practice tee before we start going out in foursomes (or less if needed). I expect all groups to be teeing off before 6pm.  (That will be important to get 9 holes in before dark in May.)

I hope you can join us for the fellowship, but I need to hear from everyone who plans to play this year!  Please send me a message using my cell number or email address listed below. Please include your name, phone number and email address in case I don't have you in my contacts already. I need your contact info to let you know of any changes (e.g.  rainouts).

Our Simpsonville Baptist Church Thursday night men’s golf league is open to everyone, so feel free to invite your friends and neighbors.  You WILL NOT have to email or call the golf course to get a tee time this year, but I would like to know if you are coming, so email or text me the week of our Thursday night outings, so I’ll know how many to expect and schedule.

Men's Small Groups

Our men's ministry is heavily invested in making disciples. It is what we are commanded to do. One avenue of making disciples is providing an atmosphere for Kingdom building through small groups.

New Class Beginning

On Wednesday, April 20 our Men's Ministry will join our Women's Ministry for a coed class.

30 Days to Understanding the Bible

Books can be purchased through Amazon.

This 5-week study will be facilitated by Bob & Angie Melton and will meet in Room 102.

Men's Ministry Plan

  • Relational Community (Matthew 18:20) - Provide organized settings that allow men to naturally connect, form friendships, and offer a safe environment where men can face and process real life issues.
  • Personal Spiritual Practices (1 Corinthians 11:1) - Provide accountability opportunities so men increasingly take responsibility for their personal spiritual life and get rid of the blinders that keep them from becoming the most useful possible man for God.
  • Influencing Another Person’s Life (Matthews 28:19-20) - Provide outreach efforts so men develop an appetite to see lives transformed and are consumed with making disciples.

SBC Men’s Ministry Action Steps

1A. Intentionally discover men’s spiritual gifts and connect them into serving opportunities.

1B. Minister to men through community men’s events (golf, Wed class, 1st Saturday breakfast, mission trips & opportunities), projects, resources, devotionals, etc.

2A. Create a “Try It” atmostphere by adopting different SIMPly Love projects through the year as a way to sample different serving opportunities in our community.

2B. Introduce a 5/5 Covenant (Addendum “A”) to create intentionality and opportunity to experience faith outside the church.

2C. Offer specific classes (for example, 3 Circles training) to build faith and boldness.

3A. Intentional apprenticing by mentoring new Christians.

3B. Have 4-6 gospel conversations a year by partnering with ministries like (for example) a drug rehabilitation home where people are uncritical spirits, have hungry hearts and listening ears for the promise of salvation and redemption.

3C. Quarterly share stories of radically changing lives (pulpit, newsletter, etc).
