O man of God...pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, steadfastness, gentleness.
(1 Timothy 6:11)
The Men’s Ministry at Christ Church serves to equip men for the high calling of following the Lord Jesus Christ, leading their families, and ministry in the Church. We seek to do this first and foremost by grounding men in the Word of God, which is the foundation for all of life. Another critical component is building a sense of camaraderie among men, a community where they can encourage one another and hold each other accountable. A third important aspect of Men’s Ministry is to remind men that they are called to be like the Lord Jesus Christ in their actions, both in the family and in the community. Men are called to be like Jesus in His offices: prophet, priest, and king. In this, men are prophets in their homes when they teach the Bible; priests as they lift up their family to the Lord in prayer; and kings as they protect and defend their family. In all of this, men must look to their own great Savior – Jesus Christ.
On select Saturday mornings (please check our calendar), our men participate in a fellowship breakfast at 8:00 AM. The focus of our breakfast is on fellowship and building relationships, along with a brief testimony or devotional. We invite you to get to know Christ Church’s men, talk about college football, share prayer requests, and be encouraged from the Bible. To find out more, please contact the Christ Church office.
As we have in past years, the men of Christ Church joined the men of Christ Presbyterian Church (formerly CEPC) for their annual men’s retreat on February 2-3, 2024. The retreat was held at Camp Blessing (7227 Camp Blessing Ln, Brenham, TX 77833) and the speaker was Todd Pruitt, who spoke on “The Greatest Chapter in the Bible” from Romans 8. Todd has been the Lead Pastor of Covenant Presbyterian Church since 2013. Originally from Houston, Texas, Todd was raised and educated as a Southern Baptist. He is a graduate of Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Kansas City. He has served churches in Oklahoma, Kansas and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Over a period of years he came to embrace the Reformed faith and has been a happy Presbyterian ever since. In his free time Todd is a co-host of the Mortification of Spin podcast and blog. Since 1990 Todd has been married to Karen and they have three children. They love living in the Shenandoah Valley and are grateful to call Covenant their home.
The annual retreat provides an opportunity for men to spend time together, build relationships, and grow in their knowledge of God's Word.
