Rock Harbor's Men's Ministry exists to equip, empower and encourage our men to live for God by connecting with each other around God's Word on a regular basis. Our mission is to honor Christ, strengthen our families and build the Lord's church by supporting pastoral leadership including delegated authority.


Spur others: Proverbs 27:17 - As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.

Stand firm: 2 Timothy 2:1-4 - You then, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others. Join with me in suffering, like a good soldier of Christ Jesus. No one serving as a soldier gets entangled in civilian affairs, but rather tries to please his commanding officer.

Support others by prayer: James 5:13-20 - Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy? Let them sing songs of praise. Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.  Elijah was a human being, even as we are. He prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the land for three and a half years. Again he prayed, and the heavens gave rain, and the earth produced its crops. My brothers and sisters, if one of you should wander from the truth and someone should bring that person back, remember this: Whoever turns a sinner from the error of their way will save them from death and cover over a multitude of sins.


Here you'll find the weekly, monthly and annual activities of the Rock Harbor Men's Ministry. But there are many other opportunities for men to get involved in what God is doing at Rock Harbor and in our community - opportunities you can discover simply by coming alongside existing ministries and asking, "What can I do to help?"
