Purpose:

To provide a ministry focused on Christian-based outreach, including mentoring, teaching, community service, counseling, and evangelism

Mission Statement:

We are a group of Christian Men dedicated to sharing our faith in Jesus Christ and battling to be the men God created us to be. To be men of men…to lead others to Christ…to reach out to those searching and to those unaware. We will strive to be righteous men; loyal to each other and to the Lord. We will be there for each other in good times and in rough times. We will pray for each other regularly and we will trust the Lord to lead us down the path of His choosing.
