Lunch and drinks will be provided, but make sure and eat breakfast. We look forward to seeing you there!  Register Here.

Men @ Calvary

The Calvary Men's Ministry exists to BUILD true identities in Christ

and EQUIP one another to LEAD

 

Just like our CBC mission, the Calvary Men’s Ministry is designed to carry out this mission in the context of demonstrating God’s love, declaring the Good News of the Gospel, and making disciples near and far. We invite all men to join us as we build up and equip one another responsibly for this task.

(Matthew 16:15-18; Matthew 22:37-40; Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8)

FIRETEAMS

What is a Fireteam?
In military jargon, a fireteam is a small military sub-subunit of infantry designed to optimize "bounding overwatch" and "fire and movement" tactical doctrine in combat. A typical fireteam consists of four or fewer members with a team leader ensuring cohesiveness. For Men@Calvary, a Fireteam is designed to optimize “spiritual overwatch” and engagement of our Calvary mission and vision. It is three to four men living life-on-life, iron-sharpening-iron, for the mission of our personal walk, our families, and our CBC family.

 

How does a Fireteam work?
Three to four men covenant with one another to meet on a weekly basis for one year. 
While Fireteams are encouraged to meet in person, other means such as social media or online meeting platforms may certainly be used. Each Fireteam will also have access to a Fireteam Coach with whom they can connect for questions and directions.

 

What does a Team Leader do?
One team member is designated to communicate with the team members and determine each meeting location and time – this role may be rotated periodically. 

 

How does the meeting time work?
This page will post weekly outlines for the team to follow. Outlines are a guide, not a checklist. Each outline has four parts: 
Weekly Review, Scripture Topic, Discussion Question, and Weekly Application.

 

How to start a Fireteam in Three Steps:
Step One: Recruit two to three other guys, they don’t have to be from CBC, and register your team here.

Step Two: Set a time and location to meet. 

Step Three: Follow the outlines below.
