Leading, Providing, Protecting – All for God’s Glory
Biblical Manhood

Men need a place to grow together as brothers in Christ.

This ministry seeks to equip and strengthen the men of Ascend through fellowship and the power of God’s Word to mold us into the leaders, providers, and protectors God wants us to be. Ascend Men’s Ministry facilitates discipleship opportunities, spreads the hope of Christ, and supports Ascend’s mission of saving the lost and maturing the saved.

Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. Let all that you do be done in love.

– 1 Corinthians 16:13-14

Men of the Word | Friday Mornings

Men –

The goal of bible study is simple: To know Christ and become more like Him.

We cannot lead, provide and protect per God’s design unless we know Christ and seek everyday to become more like Him.

We cannot become more like Him if we are not immersing ourselves in what He has to say in His revealed word to us, i.e. the bible!

His Word should be our delight and we are to meditate on His Word day and night (Psalm 1:2).

His Word is a Lamp that lights our path (Psalm 119:105).

The sum of His Word is truth (Psalm 119:160).

Join us at the church in the Multi-Purpose Room on Friday mornings during the school year from 6:15am to 7:30am as we gather to study the truth, be sanctified in the truth(John 17:17) from the one who is the truth (John 14:6).

We will spend this year going through Paul’s Letter To The Ephesians.  Please join us!

Table for Four | Begins October 1

Table 4 Four is an easy and informal opportunity for the men of Ascend to connect over a coffee, a meal, etc and learn from each other about our walk and growth in Christ-likeness.  This is a great way to get connected with other men in the church whom you may not interact with regularly.  Ultimately, the more connected we are, the deeper our ability to create discipleship relationships throughout the church.

You will be grouped with 3 other guys to have at least a single gathering (breakfast, lunch, dinner, coffee, etc.) to get to know each other.

Registration will be open thru 9/25.  We will then group you into ‘tables of four’ and then on or after 10/1, a facilitator will reach out to you and your table members to schedule your gathering.

Additional details to be provided at the Ascend IronMen Dinner on Fri 9/23.

IronMen Dinner | Sept 23 6-8:30pm

Like iron sharpening iron, this ministry seeks to equip/strengthen the men of Ascend through fellowship and the power of God’s Word to mold us into the leaders, providers, protectors God wants us to be, facilitating discipleship opportunities, giving the help and hope of Christ, all supporting Ascend’s mission of seeing lost people saved, saved people matured, matured people multiplied, all for God’s Glory.

Please join us for a time of Food, Fellowship, Worship, Testimony, Teaching and Reflection…..oh and Bring A Friend!  We all need the help and hope of Christ!

Theme – Faithfulness

Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord, your labor is not in vain.
– 1 Cor. 15:58

IronMen Summit | January 2023

During the past two years, there has been a lot of mental energy spent on keeping the church together, making sense of government mandates, and trying to maintain unity. Given the time this was necessary. Now that it’s behind us God is calling us to something more. God wants us to be “Men on a Mission.”

In the words of 1 Peter 2:9:

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.”

God calls and commissions us to proclaim the excellencies of God who called us from darkness to light. On January 21st, 2023, we will once again gather in Emporia, KS for the Ironmen Summit. As men on a mission, our goal will be to motivate and equip you to fulfill the prime directive for His glory.

Sign up here for either the LiveStream we’ll be hosting at Ascend or if you plan on attending in-person, you will be pointed to the Flinthills Bible Church website to register there.
