Men

Men’s Ministries exist to encourage and support men of all ages and backgrounds. Programs are designed to enrich the lives of men at Mount of Olives and in our community through Bible study and creating Christian Community. 

  • The Edge Men's Ministry

    The Edge is a gathering of men once a week who meet to grow in relationship with Jesus -  to be better men, husbands and fathers, and to share life with other men in Christian Community.


    The Edge meets weekly on Tuesdays 7:00-8:30pm in the New Creation Center (building nearest the rear parking lot).


    Multi-week study series are selected by the group leaders, and allow so that men can join in at any point during the study. Most studies include a video and breakout sessions led by men on the leadership team.


    Upcoming Studies:


    Starting April 26th we'll offer two programs simultaneously each Tuesday in the NCC (in the main room and the ADP room):

    1. "Learning the Bible in 24 hours" led by John Linder. Each week we will view a video that covers a portion of the Bible followed by discussion. Program offered throughout the end of the year.
    2. A series of shorter studies: (1) Andy Stanley's 3-part series “Re:Solution” led by John Harrison. We will study the example of Nehemiah's sacrifice in 605 BC to help us look at how to make this frustrating world a better place by our own actions, (2) A study of  Jim Akers' book, "Godfidence", (3) a Max Lucado series entitled "3:16: The Numbers of Hope".


    The Edge will take a break in the summer months of July and August.  The Edge will resume its programs above on Tuesday, September 6th.




    To the men of Mount of Olives Church, Edge means to Encourage Devotion to God Everyday.

  • Men's Retreat

    Save the Date: September 23-24, 2022


    In September 2022, Men will gather on the Mount of Olives Church campus on Friday evening and Saturday for a program led by our guest speaker: Rod Handley of Kansas City based Character that Counts. Rod spoke at Mount of Olives in the past and is back by popular demand! 


    ----------


    The 2021 Men's Retreat was different than a typical retreat format. Men gathered on the Mount of Olives Church campus on Friday evening and Saturday morning with meals included and programming led by featured guest speaker, David Dusek. 


    David spoke on the need for men to "partner up" with other men in leading their families and working for Christ. He spoke to our 2015 retreat and was back by popular demand! 


    Thanks to all who participated!


  • Amazing Bible Study

    The Amazing Bible Study, originally just for Women, is expanded to include Men and Small Groups (as well as continuing the women's format) this fall online!

    What is this study? It's based on "The Amazing Collection: The Bible, Book by Book." The goal is to develop a closer relationship with God as we study all of His Word. As we look at all 66 books of the Bible (written by more than 40 authors over a period of 1600 years), we discover that they have a common theme -- God's redeeming love.

    How will it work? We cover a book of the Bible each week. At each meeting, we listen to a lesson; then we do homework in our study guides; then we come together to discuss in small groups what we have learned. It’s a format that works if you’ve never read the Bible or if you’ve studied the Bible for decades! So wherever you are along that continuum, we invite you to come and give it a try.


    Since we'll be meeting via Zoom, feel free to invite friends and family members regardless of where they live. We already have one person in England, one in Washington state, and one in central California!

    The Amazing Bible Study is offered twice a week - you can choose one grouping to participate in: Tuesday evenings at 7:00pm PT and Wednesday mornings at 9:00am PT. Each meeting lasts 1.5-2 hours.


    The next session begins September 7 (or 8) and goes through November 16 (or 17) covering Isaiah through Acts. You can buy the study guides you'll need online on Amazon.


    The next session will begin again January 11 (or 12), 2022 and go through April 12 (or 13).
