Our Current Theme Is “Follow Me”

Christianity is not just a philosophy or a list of propositions that a man believes. Nor is it just a get out of Hell free card. No, Jesus called men to follow Him. When we embrace this call, there is a radical rearrangement of our values and motivations. What does this look like in the 21st century? Come join us as we explore and apply Jesus' call to "Follow Me."

If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.

Mark 8:34

David invited me to a Focused Living Men’s Forum which was an eye-opening experience because of their transparency and authenticity with each other. They were real dudes who told their life stories using everyday language I could identify with. It helped me to open up and be one of the guys. Over several months of relating with these guys, I actually prayed to receive Christ with yet another new friend, Perry, who challenged me to submit my life. I’ve been involved in the Forums and GRIP discipleship ever since!

Paul Cochrane took me to a FLM Men’s Forum to be around men who would encourage me on my spiritual journey and answer my many questions. I remember that it was after one of the Thursday morning Men's Forums that I put my faith in Jesus Christ and received His forgiveness. Perry was the first call I made to tell him of this good news as he had been praying for me. He was so excited to hear it. Since then my new church home, the Men's Forum and GRIP discipleship have helped me grow in my faith and walk me through my transition into marriage and fatherhood.

Stephen

A few years ago I was invited to check out a Men’s Forum. As I applied the truths I learned each Wednesday morning and saw Christ in the other men I began “my own” relationship with God. My prayer life is stronger, my vision of God’s character has deepened my faith which got me through a very traumatic time in our lives. I learned that my understanding of God is way too small and I am not in control, but He is!
