Men at Cross Culture
We all have that one great friend that has stuck with us through everything. You've been friends for so long, you can’t remember a time when you weren’t. You may not speak as often as you should, but as soon as you connect, it’s like you haven’t been apart a day.
As we grow up, move around and begin our adult lives, we lose the close connection with our peers that we used to have. We laser focus on careers, kids, finances–our daily, weekly routine. We start to believe that our life is in our control and we are on the verge of something great–if we only get a chance. It can be isolating and lonely when we begin to take on the problems of the entire world, our family, even the workplace. It is our job is to solve the world’s problems, isn’t it?
Our vision for our men’s group is a place where guys can come together and develop a strong network of great neighbors. We want this to be a safe place for our fellow men to come to relieve stress, connect with new friends and unite the community. Through this process and living out the mission of Christ, we will be able to disciple the lost and broken in our community.
We want to live by the example that there is no condemnation in Christ and that there is something wonderfully different about us. We are focused on small groups of guys connecting and developing strong relationships that, in turn, strengthen the group as a whole.
The men in GVR are strong, but sometimes we lose sight of our families and communities. More than ever, it is time that our men be the leaders we need them to be. We believe we can be a catalyst for this change by uniting and investing in these men.
It is our time to be the men God created us to be, starting a revival in GVR and beyond. It’s time to get into the game. I hope you will join us in our mission to change this world– by simply being a great neighbor!
See you there!
