Shady Oaks Baptist Men’s Ministry helps men develop a compelling vision of Biblical masculinity that will bless both his life and the lives of those around him. Shady Oaks is a place where men can connect with other men to study God’s Word, to hold each other accountable, and grow spiritually. We want to create opportunities for fellowship and service throughout the year. From men’s conferences to weekly Bible studies and disciple-making groups to family enrichment – you will find a place to connect and grow in the Lord.
More than just a rally or a Bible study, Authentic Manhood provides men with an encouraging process that teaches them how to live lives of authentic manhood as modeled by Jesus Christ and directed by the Word of God. It will help a man develop a compelling vision of Biblical masculinity that will bless both his life and the lives of those around him as he seeks to reject passivity, accept responsibility, and lead courageously.
The format is simple. We will meet at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday evenings. There will be a teaching time followed by 30 minutes of small group interaction in an environment where men are free to talk openly and confidentially about what they hear, and express mutual support for one another.
The true power of Authentic Manhood lies in bringing men together on common ground to learn together and listen to each other. Bonds of true God-centered friendships are formed as men encourage each other week-by-week to more fully embrace a godly view of manhood. Our prayer is that the Men of Shady Oaks Baptist Church would rise up and take responsibility for their families and Church as they commit to pursue Biblical masculinity through participating in Men’s Fraternity.
