The purpose of Men's Ministry is to bring glory to God by growing men into committed disciples of Christ through learning, serving, fellowshipping, and reaching other men for Christ -- together.
The following events are planned for the new season of Men’s Ministries at Shawnee Hills Baptist Church. Please consider participating in some of these as they represent opportunities both to serve and grow.

This Sunday evening men’s discipleship class is for all men from high school on up. This year we’re focusing on the need to be morally pure as men of God. This new DVD series will challenge men to live holy lives as men, husbands, and fathers.
Small Group Discipleship September 2017 – April 2018 Step 1: This 26-week discipleship class is for men out of high school who want to grow spiritually and connect with other Christian men. Groups of 4-5 men will meet at various times of the week for an hour and a half for 26 weeks. This is a high commitment ministry which will follow a syllabus and share praises of God, blessings from God, and prayer requests, and will be accountable to one another.
Step 2: This 24-week discipleship class is for those men who have completed Step 1 and want to go deeper. A similar format will be followed using Respectable Sins by Jerry Bridges as the study book ($11). Each group will consist of 4-5 men who are out of high school.
