Men's Ministry

A strong foundation is absolutely essential in the construction of any building if it is to stand, be enjoyed, and endure.  No one understands that better than the Master-Builder, Jesus Christ.  That's why He said, "Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock" (Matthew 7:24).

Truly wise men believe the importance of making faith in Jesus and obedience to His teaching the strong foundation on which to build their lives.  Our goal is to teach these essential life-building truths from God's Word to men who want to be godly leaders at home, church, work, and in the community.

Be involved!  Take advantage of the great opportunities for spiritual training and fellowship through our Men of 7:24 ministries.

Annual Weekend Retreat - The Skyview Ranch men's retreat is one gian weekend of many food, manly fun and manly preaching.  There's something for everyone, from trapshooting to paintball, and from horseback riding in beautiful country trails to golf or fishing for 24" bass.  But the greatest part of the weekend is when we engage in meaningful worship and preaching each morning and evening.  For more information, go to
