Men's Ministry

lhb2@aol.comTo be called by God is to be entrusted with necessity from God. Men who embrace their necessary roles because they respond to God's necessary calls have never been more needed in our homes, churches, and surrounding culture. MAN exists at First Evan to equip and urge our men to "walk in a manner worthy of the calling" (Ephesians 4:1) to which we've been called by God as men.
