- Men's Ministry
Why Men's Ministry?
In keeping with God’s word; “and what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.” (2 Timothy 2:2); the men at St. Andrew’s have taken up the challenge to not only strengthen our own faith but to teach and lead those in our families and communities into a deeper, closer relationship with Christ. We will do this through Christ-centered activities that will equip men with the tools needed to help build a strong Christian foundation for their families and communities.
This includes community projects, youth events, Bible studies, and our yearly Men’s Retreat, along with other faith building events. We invite all the men of St. Andrews and the greater Stockton community to join us in building stronger men, stronger families, and a stronger community.
“Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.” – Proverbs 27:17

- Big Man's Breakfast
Gather as men in our Fellowship Hall third Saturdays of the month at 7:30 AM to eat, laugh, learn from God's word and each other, and be equipped to take on our daily challenges of being godly men, bosses, employees, students, teachers, fathers, husbands, coaches, you name it. Lots of meat and eggs, lots of good times for those who gather.

Our Big Man's Breakfasts are designed to gather us, direct us, unite us, challenge us, and give us God's word for food (as well as a lot of bacon). Our men give opening devotions and Pastor Dan leads a time of teaching to strengthen our faith and calling as men.
Our mentoring events are designed to build up the next generation. We take our own children, invite others without fathers, and invite other fathers with their children to come together and invest in the lives of our young ones, showing them their value and showing all our young ones what it looks like for men to live for God.
Our service events are meant to engage in needful service in the community. We encourage our men to invite their friends and neighbors to join us in making a positive impact in our community, reflecting our church's mission to inspire our community.
