Men's Ministry at CLC exists to reach out, care for, and equip men in their journey of life, faith, and witness in Christ. Below are our guiding principles, and some current opportunities for Bible study, fitness, and fellowship.

For more information on Men's Ministry, contact Tom Vandergrift.

  • CLC Men's Guiding Principles

    The guiding principles for CLC Men's Ministry are:

    1. Encourage each man’s personal growth in scriptural knowledge as the basis for modeling Christ to others.
    2. Expand each man’s Christian community as a support system for men at all stages of life.
    3. Embolden men to thrive in the spiritual leadership of their families.
    4. Extend Christ to others in our churches, homes, neighborhoods, communities, and beyond.

    CLC Men will carry out these principles by connecting existing ministries and fostering an environment where men are encouraged and supported to personally invite others to participate. CLC Men will create and offer a consistent cadence of welcoming experiences into which others can (and are) invited.
