Our culture praises independence, but Jesus set a different example. He chose 12 ordinary men and devoted Himself to them. 

Following Jesus is exciting but challenging. The best way to keep up is to avoid walking alone. That’s why we call men to follow the model Jesus set. Banding together to encourage each other is at the heart of our Savior’s mission.

In our quest to follow and walk with our Lord, we encourage men to huddle up to pursue God together. We do this through Bible studies, men’s small groups, discipleship, mentoring, and community groups. We also get together for retreats, men’s breakfasts, the annual car show, sports venues, service opportunities, and more.

Groups and One-on-One

While there is a strong tendency in our culture to be an independent man who never needs anyone else, we challenge men to consider the example of Jesus. He not only surrounded Himself with 12 ordinary men, He encouraged them to do the same. He told them if they followed Him He would make them fishers of men (Matthew 4:19). We feel strongly about either having a band of brothers or at least one other man in our lives who we can meet with regularly to accompany us on our walk with Jesus Christ. There are several men’s small groups to join or individual men to meet with as mentors.

Interest Groups

If you have a hobby, passion, or interest you would like to share, consider one of these interest groups. We hope they provide places for new friendships to form through which men can help each other become more like Jesus and make Him known. For more information about a group or how to form a group, contact Shane. (Click on the group you are interested in to register online.)


Great food (including bacon) a good speaker, fun and a chance to meet some other men are always on the menu for our men’s breakfasts.

  • Twice a year on a Saturday
  • Cedar Mill Bible Church campus


It’s a great time to be refreshed, reenergized, and refocused in your walk with the Lord. There are tons of fun activities like a zip line that lands in a lake, go carts, skeet shooting, an 88-thousand square foot gym with basketball, volleyball, rock climbing wall, skate park, ping pong, and pool.

  • Third weekend in May, every other year (our next retreat will be May 2021)
  • Washington Family Ranch (run by Young Life)
