Men's Ministry

FBC Athens Man Church

Man Church: Be a man…follow Jesus

The Men’s Ministry Strategy of FBC Athens is The Man Church. The Man Church is a field tested resource for challenging and equipping men to be who God created them to be. Disciple men, change everything. The Man Church Discipleship Strategy

The Man Church Discipleship Strategy is designed to launch men into a recurring discipleship loop. This is accomplished by utilizing large group gatherings as a funnel for small group Bible study. Our 2023 large group gatherings will be our Men’s Conference on February 24 at Clements Baptist Church and Gridiron, June 16-17 in Huntsville. 

Small Group Bible Study

This is accomplished on Thursday nights from 7:00-8:00. This is where our men will have a never ending discipleship experience. We are presently using Be Disciples. 2023 Topics include: Worshipping God, Pursuing Holiness, Embracing Christian Community, Engaging The World, and Investing in Discipleship.
