Men Connecting to Jesus and One Another

The desire we have for the Men’s Ministry is to help every man at Southeast become the man God has called him to be. We want to take men on a journey of transformation—developing a strong relationship with God, for the pursuit of His Glory, and in constant worship of Him. Through challenging, equipping, and empowering the men of this region to lead, we desire to see healthy marriages, joy-filled homes, and safe neighborhoods.

Man Challenge



Every man needs two things: encouragement and accountability.

We have developed Man Challenge as an environment where all men are invited to come and get connected with other men. We offer both a teaching time and a small group time at each campus.

Man Challenge is specifically designed to help men grow in their faith TOGETHER.

SW Men's Beach Trip

Join a small group of men from the SW campus as we travel to Gulf Shores, Alabama for a men's retreat. During our time together, we will not spend the bulk of our time in sessions; instead our time will be spent building relationships with other men, while being challenge in our walk with Jesus. Our hope is that as "Iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another."
