Men's Ministry

At Grace, we've designed our Men's Ministry to help guys build real friendships and provide resources for spiritual formation and leadership.

We do this through...

A Weekly Group Gathering...IRONWORKS

Connect with other men from Grace over donuts, coffee, and the Word of God as we strive together to be Christlike. We meet every Thursday from 6-7:00 a.m. in the Grace Cafe. This is where greatness is cultivated. For more information on Ironworks contact Michael Lopes.

Periodic Special Events

Summer Softball
Every May the men of Grace put together several slow-pitch softball teams for summer league play. This is a great way to meet some of the men at the church while competing together, and is a good place to invite friends not connected with the church. The league runs from June to August. For more information contact Eddie Wendt at (559) 804-9988.

Men’s Board Game Nights
The men of Grace met on the fourth Friday of the month from 7:00pm to 10:00pm in the Grace Cafe this spring to build friendships while playing games and eating manly snacks. Stay tuned for upcoming dates. For more information contact Zach Cardoza at (559) 801-8823.

Men's 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament
On March 18 we had a 3on3 tournament at the Manuel Hernandez Center from 8-12 noon. Stay tuned for dates for our 2018 tournament. Call Eddie Wendt at (559) 804-9988 for more information.

Men’s Taco Feed
The men of Grace had a dinner on May 05 at 6:00pm in the Student Center. We enjoyed good food, good company, while hearing from an inspirational speaker. Stay tuned for upcoming dates. For more information contact Michael Lopes at (559) 733-3966 ext 117.

Downtown Car Show
The men of Grace had a booth at the Visalia Downtown Car Show on May 20. This event gave us the opportunity to share Jesus with those at the car show and made our presence known in the community. If you are interested in showing your classic car or helping in other ways next year, please contact Eddie Wendt at (559) 804-9988.

Men’s Trap Shooting
The men of Grace had a Trap Shoot competition on August 12. This event was at the Tulare Co. Trap Club in Visalia from 8:00am to 12:00pm. Men of all ages and skill levels were invited to compete. Lunch and snacks were provided. This is a great event to invite friends not connected with the church, so stay tuned for our 2018 Trap Shoot.
