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.

2021 | 6:30 p.m. Wednesday Man Challenge: Liminal Circle
Indiana
A common theme with men is the question: “Am I man enough?” But we say it in different ways. “Am I a good dad?" "Am I doing everything right?" "Is God pleased with me?” In other words: “…Am I man enough?” A Liminal Circle small group is a journey with a circle of men that will bring a new awareness about yourself, your relational community, and your relationship with God. A “container” of grace and truth where men can be seen and accepted for who they really are, where men are challenged and empowered to live fuller, more authentic lives, and where men begin to know and live who they are as “Men of God.” This 6-week group is the first part of a series of similar groups. This 6-week small group will examine issues of integrity, being accountable for the choices we make as men, and taking 100% responsibility for these choices.

Indiana
This group specifically made up of young adults ranging from post-college through early 30s and open for singles, dating, or married serves as a great environment to gather in community, build relationships, and dig into the Word with peers who are in a similar season of life. We can all agree that following Jesus is by no means easy, especially when we live in a world with so many distractions and so much pain and trouble. In this 5-week study, we will work through Paul’s letter to the church in Philippi as we get a glimpse of the hope and joy we have in Jesus and the good news of the Gospel and what that means for us as followers of Jesus in our daily lives and in the midst of life’s biggest struggles.

It's the secret to marriage that every couple seeks, and yet few couples ever find.

Making conscientious choices about technology in our families is more than just using internet filters and determining screen time limits for our children.

Join some of the River Valley staff for this 2-week group as we discuss ways to honor God with our use of technology.
