"You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men. You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:13-16
Historically and biblically, men have been essential in spreading the gospel and serving in positions of leadership throughout our churches. Their leadership in the family is crucial. Their dedicated, faith-based community service is an example of Christian living. Today we believe men are becoming more aware of the need to seek God’s will and His call upon their lives. Men’s Ministries is committed to inspiring men of all ages to engage in meaningful service and strives to provide them with resources and support to complete the task.
A few of the opportunities we have for the men of Valley Shepherd are listed below.
Men’s Bible Study
Men’s Bible Study meets each Wednesday evening from 6:45 - 8:00 pm. This is a great opportunity for spiritual growth through accountability, spiritual learning and sharing.
Men’s Prayer Group
Men’s Prayer Group meets every Thursday morning at 6:30 am in the Prayer Chapel. This is a wonderful opportunity for men to come together to spend dedicated time with the Lord. Fellowship and breakfast at a local restaurant follows for those who can attend.
Sports Ministry offers the men of Valley Shepherd a great opportunity to share the good news of life in Christ while enjoying sports and recreation programs. Men your life will be changed and God will use you to change the lives of others!

Men at the Cross
Men at the Cross is a men’s only annual event, centered on the call to discipleship. Men will leave this event with a renewed passion to see:
- Men know Christ

- Workplaces impacted for the glory of God
Discipleship is becoming a way of life for hundreds of men across the country. Men of all ages are welcome and encouraged to attend this tremendous event! Information for this event will be announced in the church bulletin and on the church calendar.
The Men’s Ministry of Valley Shepherd invites all men to come and enjoy a hearty breakfast, held quarterly, in the Church Fellowship Hall. The Men’s Breakfast is a wonderful opportunity for men to join in fellowship and to enjoy a challenging and relevant message from an inspirational speaker.
