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.

Biblical prophecy involves more of the Bible than the book of Revelation. However, our upcoming series, 15 sessions, will rely on Revelation as the background, supplemented by several other Scriptures for clarity and commentary. The chronology and the outline of the book are provided as…the things which you have seen, and the things which are, and the things which will take place after these things (1:19). The Church age is the first area of attention. The Eternal Order is the conclusion. Eschatology is the study of last things, things to come. We will identify and focus on these major events. Application of these Scriptures will be emphasized. A Q&A period will typically end each session.
