DBC's Men's Ministry exists to help men in every stage of life seek God, grow in His likeness and live according to His will.

Work and home are the super bowls of manhood. Real men know how to win in both!

More than just a rally or a Bible study, Men’s Fraternity provides men with an encouraging process that teaches them how to live lives of authentic manhood as modeled by Jesus Christ and directed by the Word of God. Men’s Fraternity was designed to help men come together and strengthen each other through weekly sessions that combine biblical teaching and small group interaction.

Offered on either Sunday nights or Wednesday mornings, you can jump into this 3-year curriculum at any time. We will be covering The Great Adventure material in 2018/19.

Final Thoughts

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the ages of the men? Men between 18–60+ attend on a weekly basis.

Do I need to be married or a father to attend? No. Single, married, divorced and widowed men all attend the sessions.

What is the typical format of the 1.5 hour meeting? We start at 7:00 pm SHARP. From 7:00–7:15, we meet and have general announcements and evening directions. From 7:15–8:00, the large group watches an informative video series based on Robert Lewis’ highly successful Men’s Fraternity program. From 8:00–8:30, we break up into small groups for discussion. We promise to Finish at 8:30 SHARP. Discussions can continue—but that is optional.

Tell me about the small groups: There are normally 6-10 men in a small group, and they remain together for the entire year. The group is facilitated by a leader and an alternate.

Do I need to be familiar with the Bible and be a church member to attend? Absolutely not. Several men are not from DBC that attend. Although we reference Biblical verses—you do not need to be familiar or even own one to join our sessions.

Will I be called on to answer questions or made to feel uncomfortable? Absolutely not. One of our tenets in the program is that we do not call on anyone to answer questions.

Will I be called upon to pray? Absolutely not. We do not call on anyone to pray. The leaders will ask for prayer requests from the group and facilitate the prayer time.

What if I miss a class due to a business trip? How do I catch up? The church provides login information and access to Right Now Media where you can view all the materials you have missed.

Does the group plan on having any social gathering during the year? Yes, we are planning on having 1 or 2 social gatherings during the year.

What does it cost to join? There is a minimal fee of $10 for the workbooks.

Who do I contact if I have other questions?  For the Sunday night group, contact David Newman. For the Wednesday morning group, contact Chris Gant.
