Men's Recreational Outreach

Though the turnout was small, all were in good spirits as 4 men from New Life Church set off on a disc golf adventure last Saturday. After 18 "holes" and lots of fun, the conversation turned toward ministry. Josh Whitbeck and Jeff Brophy began to share their vision for hosting recreation based men's outings for the purpose of fellowship and outreach.

The idea is that men like to do things to get the competitive juices flowing. What if Christian guys started inviting their non-Christian friends to participate in fun recreational activities with their friends from church? They envision bringing non-believing men into the community of believing men at New Life Church so that they might see our lives and hear our talk about walking with God. They believe this recreational ministry could be a bridge to seeing men come to know Christ.

If you are interested in participating in this ministry or just have some good ideas, you can e-mail Josh Whitbeck at
