Welcome to Men's Ministry at Christ Church. 

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