Men's Ministry

Welcome to Men's Ministry at Christ Church. 

We gather for fellowship, spiritual learning, and community outreach, and we're always open to newcomers. All opinions and life stages are welcome.

Throughout the year we'll offer a wide variety of programs and events, so whether you're looking to dip your toe in or dive deeper, we hope you'll join us.



Join us February 1 - 3, 2019 at Valle Crucis Conference Center in Banner Elk, NC. Men of all ages spend a weekend away for fun and fellowship - a timer for reflection, recreation, and relaxation. Contact Henry Ijams, 704-525-5763,   with questions. REGISTER NOW »
