EBC Men's Ministry
Men of all ages are welcome and encouraged to get involved with Christ’s Church. It is our desire to have several types of small discipleship groups, men’s events, community outreach, and other studies, so all men can find a group to have fellowship with and grow in their knowledge of, and their personal relationship with, God. We hope and pray men can embrace with all their heart the “Great Commandment” and hear Jesus’ calling for all men to pursue the “Great Commission”.

Every Man a Warrior is a discipleship series designed to help men succeed in life by finding victory over the heart issue’s that men struggle with daily. It is for men who want to become the warriors God intends – not living lives of mediocrity but maturing and becoming equipped in the areas where men fight and need to win. Our fall courses begin in September. Class size is limited, so register early at the men’s ministry table. If you have questions contact Stu Black at 701-290-0731 or Lee Magstadt at 701-225-1703.
Book 1 – Walking with God
This course is for all men! Become better equipped in your daily Bible reading and prayer life. Jesus gave us the “Great Commandment” for a reason, the most important ministry you will ever grow is your personal relationship with the Lord. This book teaches you the essential skills to have a structured quiet time with the Lord that includes, “thinking with a purpose” as you read God’s word and your time with God in prayer. This course will help you develop a foundation for a fruitful life as you learn how to pursue the knowledge and heart of God.
Book 2 – Marriage and Raising Children
After a man’s relationship with God, there is nothing more important than the relationships he has with his wife and children. Men need someone to come alongside them and help them discover how to fight for their marriage and their relationships with their children. This course is for men who are already married, and it is an excellent preparation for men who aren’t even engaged yet. Book 1 is a prerequisite to participate in this study.
Book 3 – Money, Sex, Work, Hard Times, Making Your Life Count
This 10-week study puts the skills and habits of book 1 into action as we pursue God’s plan for critical issues in the life of a Christian man. Book 1 is a prerequisite to participate in this study.

What does following Christ really look like? How does being a Christian change my life? The answer to these questions is revelaed in the Epistle of James. Unfortunately, many Christians don’t allow their faith in Christ impact the way they live from day to day.
Join the men as they unfold the teachings of James, the half-brother of Jesus. James, who went from skeptic to believer, faced an objective reality he had to come to terms with: the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. What James knew still holds true today. When we encounter Jesus, He will change everything!
Led by Pastor Ron, 6:45-7:30 am — Fellowship Hall
All men benefit from Bible study and fellowship. This group provides both. We are currently working our way through Matthew. We read a portion of Scripture and open it for discussion. Our aim is to be Biblically sound and very applicable. You are welcome even if you are not able to attend every week.
