“As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another” –Proverbs 27:17 

“Men do not become men in the company of women; we become men in the company of other men.”
 – From Every Man, God’s Man by Arterburn, Wendorf, & Luck
 
As Christian men, we were never intended to go it alone. We were designed by our Creator to connect with other Christian men – to encourage, support, and inspire each other in the adventures we live, through the battles we fight, and for the others we serve.
 
“And if one can overpower him who is alone, two can resist him. A cord of three strands cannot be broken.” –Ecclesiastes 4:12

With these ideas in mind, the FBC Garland Men’s Ministry will empower and equip men through…
  • Missions and outreach activities
  • Ministries to meet the physical needs of others
  • Fellowship opportunities
  • Support programs for families and youth
  • Teaching and education, focused on men’s needs
