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 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.

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.
