There is no greater responsibility a man of God has than to set his heart to follow the Word of God. This involves careful and diligent study, followed by practical daily application in our lives.

The men of South Church meet for early morning or evening studies to study, grow, and reach out to other men. Currently we have retreats, golf outings, and other special events planned. Be sure to check the calendar of events.

    Mission Statement:
  • Encourage men to live lives worthy of God’s call (I Thes. 2:11-12)
  • Building into faithful men (2 Tim. 2:2)
  • Men proving to be faithful servants (I Cor. 4:1-2)
Developing CHRIST in men by learning biblical truth
Instruct a wise man and he will be wiser still;
teach a righteous man and he will add to his learning

Proverbs 9.9

SPUR: Spiritual Prompting Unto Righteousness

SPUR is devoted to prompting spiritual growth and leadership among men.

Spur is made up of meaningful times of prayer, bible study, book study, sharing, learning and growing in our walk with Jesus. Currently, we are studying the book, Knowing God by J. I. Packer. This book has been an important tool to help Christians around the world discover the wonder, the glory and the joy of knowing God.

New believer or seasoned believer, if you want to learn how to walk with Jesus, come join us and we will learn and grow together. New people, age 21+, are always welcome and can jump in anytime. We meet the 1st & 3rd Friday of each month at Panera Bread in the Frandor Plaza with a start time of 7am.

Tuesday Men’s Study @ Zoom
Aug 31 @ 7:00 pm – 8:15 pm

Meeting via Zoom

We alternate studies between a book of the Bible and books that address men.

During our discussion, men are free to raise situations or issues that they are facing. Our goal is to go beyond knowledge and understanding to gain wisdom. We do that by thinking of ways to apply God’s truth to our lives. We have 3 rules: 1) We try to be prepared to answer the questions.  2) We don’t give advice but offer counsel.  3) Everything is to be held confidential.  We always close with prayer requests and prayer.

We are very informal and enjoy getting to know each other.  We have many conversations going on at the same time concerning a range of topics. Many of our men are older, mature Christians, and all of us wish to be all that Christ would have us to be.
