Men's Ministry


At Johnson Ferry we desire for men to grow and develop in their relationship with God, to be the spiritual leaders of their homes and to influence others as they seek answers in today’s troubled world. We endeavor to equip men to know God better and grow in their spiritual walk.

Our Bible studies and events give men the opportunity to live out their faith, to learn more about the God we serve and to grow in their walk with Him.

Our events are designed to draw others in, our studies are for encouragement and growth and our mission trips are to share the Gospel here and beyond. Don’t miss what we have to share!
