Ministry Aspects

Small Groups

The goal of small groups is to experience growth in Christ. We use the scriptures as the foundation of our focus and reflection. Our personal stories and manner of relating are explored by the group. Each man is encouraged to reflect on what God is like and what He is doing in us. All groups currently meet in the Fayetteville, Springdale areas. For more information on joining a group call or email.

Pathfinders

As the name implies we are all living and moving forward with an end in mind. Our success at reaching that destination is dependent on the path we follow. Many have reached the end of the journey when they’ve come to the sickening realization that they have been on the wrong path. All of the work and effort has little to show for it. Our belief is that the best path is the one described by the Lord. Its end is clear, the way is narrow and few find it. When does a young man look for the path? Does he wait until he is of age or with a few encouragements can he find that path before it is too late? We believe he can. Pathfinders introduce young men and young ladies to others who have found God’s path for their life. These relationships and instructions will assist dads and their children formulate and find the path God has chosen for them. Events include visiting the work places of Christian men, learning practical skills and spending quality time with their father which will pay great dividends along the way.

Group Outfitter

We are a “turn-key” opportunity for churches to utilize for their men. Our mission is to provide equipment, trip planning, logistics, a speaker and guide for a variety of outdoor adventure experiences including canoe trips, supported bike trips, backpack trips and hunt camps. By doing so, we will remove the burden of planning and executing an event from the pastor or church staff member so they can devote time to other pressing issues. Our spiritual theme is to know and grow in Christ.
