DBC's Men's Ministry exists to help men in every stage of life seek God, grow in His likeness and live according to His will.

Men's Fraternity

Work and home are the super bowls of manhood. Real men know how to win in both!

For most men happiness and satisfaction in life are locked up in two words—work and home. Together these two words capture the worlds that make up the bulls-eye of a man’s life. These arenas absorb most of a man’s time, talent, energy, effort and creativity. Most importantly, no man can afford success in only one of these critical areas. The good life demands that he win in both.

Based on Robert Lewis’ Authentic Manhood series that teaches men how to live lives of authentic manhood as modeled by Jesus Christ and directed by the Word of God, Men’s Fraternity will help you elevate your game at home and in the workplace. For 16 weeks, this group will help men build (or rebuild) their confidence; expand their vision; develop successful life strategies; and improve their performance in their relationship with their wife or girlfriend, in their relationships with their children, and in their job!

  • Gain new insights and understanding about yourself.
  • Discover new ways to develop deeper communication, friendship and intimacy with your wife or girlfriend.
  • Receive a winning game plan for dealing with conflict, addressing money issues and raising healthy children.
  • Learn life’s greatest success principle, and you will have an opportunity to practice it.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the ages of the men? Men between 18–60+ attend on a weekly basis.

Do I need to be married or a father to attend? No. Single, married, divorced and widowed men all attend the sessions.

What is the typical format of the 1.5 hour meeting? We start at 7:00 pm SHARP. From 7:00–7:15 pm, we meet and have general announcements and evening directions. From 7:15–8:00 pm, the large group watches an informative video series based on Robert Lewis’ highly successful Men’s Fraternity program. From 8:00–8:30 pm, we break up into small groups for discussion. We promise to Finish at 8:30 pm SHARP. Discussions can continue—but that is optional.

Tell me about the small groups: There are normally 6-10 men in a small group, and they remain together for the entire year. The group is facilitated by a leader and an alternate.

Do I need to be familiar with the Bible and be a church member to attend? Absolutely not. Several men are not from DBC that attend. Although we reference Biblical verses—you do not need to be familiar or even own one to join our sessions.

Will I be called on to answer questions or made to feel uncomfortable? Absolutely not. One of our tenets in the program is that we do not call on anyone to answer questions.

Will I be called upon to pray? Absolutely not. We do not call on anyone to pray. The leaders will ask for prayer requests from the group and facilitate the prayer time.

What if I miss a class due to a business trip? How do I catch up? The church provides login information and access to Right Now Media where you can view all the materials you have missed.

Does the group plan on having any social gathering during the year? Yes, we are planning on having 1 or 2 social gatherings during the year.
