Opportunities to Grow Spiritually

Fall Spiritual Growth & Development Conference

Each fall, we host a two-day (Friday pm and Saturday am) conference for the purpose of being challenged to give ourselves more completely to God. This event focuses on application-based Bible teaching that both encourages and equips us to be the men God has called us to be.
This year's conference dates are Friday & Saturday, October 25 & 26, 2019. Adam & Jessie North representing "Every Man A Warrior" and "Cultivating Holy Beauty" will be with us presenting God's word, leading us to be the men and women God has called us to become!

Every Man A Warrior

EMAW is a three-book, 28-lesson study that teaches men how to have an on-going, life-changing relationship with God. Men learn how to have a quiet time, memorize verses

Opportunities to Serve

Car Care Clinic

In the fall and spring, the FBC men host our semi-annual Car Car Clinic. The purpose of this event is to provide basic car maintenance to the vehicles of single moms, widows, and other "in need" women. Men, come out and be involved in an effort you will not forget.
This ministry is a joint effort of the FBC Men's and Women's Ministries and has been greatly used by God to encourage those who come for help and to bless those who provide the help!

Prison Outreach

We are in the process of finding ways to positively engage with the men in the Ward County Jail. It is our goal to obey the call given in Matthew 25 to visit those in prison. Hope, encouragement, and Biblical instruction are all part of what we believe God has called us to provide.
If you are interested in prison ministry,
please contact Pastor Barry @ 480-433-1300

Other Opportunities

There are many other ways that we encourage and equip men to live out their commitment to Jesus. Your spiritual giftedness is a solid starting place for determining where you have been called to serve. What is your passion, what do others affirm that you do well, what is it that brings fulfillment to your life? These are questions that will help you find your place to serve.
Men, let us help you live a life of
fulfilling and God-honoring service.

Opportunities to Overcome Life's Problems

As men, there are temptations and habits that can sidetrack our lives and keep us from living life to our full potential.
There are two specific ministries at FBC that will assist you in overcoming the hurts, habits, and hang-ups that are slowing your down and derailing your life.

The Conquer Series

The Conquer Series is a ministry program that helps men overcome the problem of sexual addiction. The Conquer Series is for every man who has ever struggled with sexual sin. It provides a battle plan for overcoming sexual sin and maintaining moral purity.
The Conquer Series is offered throughout each year and is available to any man who wants to live a morally pure life. For more information, please contact Larry DeBold @ 701-340-2739.

Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered, 12 step recovery program for anyone struggling with hurt, pain, or addiction of any kind. Celebrate Recovery is a safe place to find community and freedom from the issues that are controlling our lives.
