Men have an important role in a Christian household, and a lot of pressure is put on them to lead. That’s why it is so important for men to have a place to connect with other men- to have accountability partners, to grow spiritually, to serve alongside each other. Our LBC Men’s Ministry is a great place to be around other Christian guys and develop lasting relationships.
We are excited to announce that beginning in January of 2014, our Men’s Ministry here at LBC will be transformed. We are excited to introduce to you a more vibrant ministry capable of making a bigger difference in the lives of the men in our church family and beyond. This relaunched ministry will now feature:
– Monthly Men’s Bible Studies led by Foster Christy
– Men’s Accountability Groups
– Weekly Encouragement from Pastor Mike
– Yearly Men’s Gathering
Monthly Men’s Bible Study:
The fourth Friday of the month in the Reception Hall at 7 am
On the fourth Friday of each month from 7 to 8 am, beginning on January 24, 2014, Foster Christy will be leading a Bible study for men in the Reception Hall. The topic for our first study session will be: “The Performance Trap.”
A former high school all-American in football, Foster was a four-year varsity letterman at Auburn University where he obtained a degree in Education. He went on to pursue a Master of Divinity at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. He and his wife Laura live in Columbia, South Carolina with their two daughters Ann-Marie and Laura-Ellen (Lolly). To learn more about Foster, visit www.FosterChristy.com.

Men’s Accountability Groups:
Dates, times and meeting frequency to be determined by each group
We are now offering small, accountability groups for men to allow you to make deeper connections and grow in your relationship with God. Accountability groups exist to help you stay pure and faithful in your Christian walk and serve as a venue for building strong friendships with your brothers in Christ. These groups will allow for regular meetings for encouragement, prayer and spiritual growth. If you are interested in being a part of a group, please contact Chuck McDaniel by email or at 803.463.6126.
Weekly Encouragement from Pastor Mike:
Every Tuesday on your cellphone
Men can now sign up for a weekly word of encouragement from Pastor Mike via text message. These messages are written personally by Pastor Mike and are meant to inspire and encourage you. Texts will be sent every Tuesday and will begin in January.
All you need to do to sign up is text LBCMEN to 313131. We hope you’ll take advantage of this easy way to stay connected and will be blessed by these messages from our pastor.
Yearly Men’s Gathering:
Coming in spring 2014
Each year, our men will come together for a gathering where they will be able to deepen their walk with Christ. This time is planned for the spring of each year- stay tuned for more details soon.
