Men's Ministry

“Common Man: Uncommon Life” Class

“Common Man: Uncommon Life” is a two-week class that asks the hard questions and shows common men how to lead an uncommon life. This is a study designed for men by some of the toughest men on the planet, with the hope that men will have a deeper understanding of who they are in Christ and how God wants to use them.  
 
This video-series features a group of common men that have chosen to be set apart and live by a code. Their character is filled with honor, discipline, integrity, responsibility, and courage. They are the US Navy SEALs. We will engage with this extraordinary group of Navy SEALs as they tell us how they’ve chosen to be set apart in a different way—as followers of Jesus. Hosted by former SEAL Jeff Bramstedt, we’ll hear stories of peril, bravery, and adversity as we dig deeply into the Bible to discover timeless principles that will help all men step into the life God has for them.  
 
Join us on Thursday, February 21st and Thursday, February 28th in the Chapel. Sign up HERE. Questions, contact Jason@thenaz.org.

Men's Breakfast - March 2

The men’s ministry will be hosting its quarterly breakfast Saturday, March 2nd at 9am in main foyer at church. Come enjoy a breakfast prepared by chef Dave and his team. As we gather for fellowship and food, we will also be discussing the topic of Leading at Home. Because when men lead, the family follows. Sign up HERE. Any questions contact Jason@thenaz.org.

Men's ISI Conference - March 9

It’s easy to forget, but we are in the middle of a spiritual battleground. We fight sin in our own life, our home, our church, and the culture around us. To fight effectively we need to be constantly getting sharpened. A sword cannot sharpen itself and neither can we. Iron Sharpens Iron conferences are designed as a one-day, content rich opportunity to be better equipped and inspired to continue to fight this life or death battle.  
 
Christian Service Brigade, a part of CSB Ministries, has been working with churches to equip men with tools to disciple boys and young men for more than 80 years. We know that the “sharper” the men are in each congregation the better able they will be to equip the next generation that they are discipling. Christian Service Brigade is excited to host ISI conferences as one means of helping to equip not only the men involved in the CSB ministry, but any man able to attend.
 
We are excited to be part of this conference and want to take a group of guys to this one-day event in Grand Rapids on Saturday, March 9. Conference is from 8:30am-3:30pm (we will depart from the church at 6:15am and return at 6:00pm). Cost is $55 (*active military discounts available). Sign up HERE if you are interested. Any questions contact Jason@thenaz.org.

Men's ATV Trip - May 17-19 

Every man needs a little adventure and what’s more adventurous than muddy trails and ATVs. Join us on May 17th - 19th. We will be staying at Rustic Rafters up by Cadillac. There are 32 beds available in the cabin and six campsites on a first come first served basis. Cost is $75 per person for the cabin and $35 per person for a campsite. Register HERE by April 27. If you have questions, contact Brian Slater at psp85@sbcglobal.net.
