Men of Grace

Godly leadership from the men of Grace is evident in all areas of ministry in the church. The men encourage others by passing on what they have learned through teaching many of the Sunday Morning Classes during the Sunday School hour, being Boy Scout and Cub Scout adult guides and other leadership positions that direct our church. They grow in Christ by sharing their faith and serving God in ministry.


Ben Albin is the head of our Men's Ministry. Ben joined Grace in 2012. He is married to Nikki and they have three little girls, Lizzie, Hannah and Sarah. Contact Ben Albin for more info or questions about our Men's Ministry.

    "I believe spiritual maturity is similar to growing up - we learn to walk and talk and feed ourselves - then we learn how to serve and finally reproduce as adults. My class will focus on the middle three of these growing phases - feeding, talking and serving. I want you to be able to Grow in Christ and I want to be able to help your family grow as well. To do this, I want to equip men to feed and lead! Mike Burt"

  • book study - maximized manhood - edwin cole

    Wednesdays from 6:30-7:30PM

    Study leaders: Andy Kline and Denis Garijo


    Maximize your life, as millions of men have worldwide, by studying the Christian classic Maximized Manhood! Edwin Louis Cole, the "father of the Christian men's movement," spoke with a prophetic voice to men. Just months before leaving earth for heaven, he revised his signature work, adding five crucial chapters he believed would strengthen Maximized Manhood for the next generation.


    Almost two million copies of Maximized Manhood and its curriculum are in circulation today in more than forty languages. Dr. Cole and his wife Nancy served the Lord in ministry for more than fifty years. The ministry they co–founded with their son Paul, Christian Men's Network, still strengthens men worldwide with the reality that "manhood and Christlikeness are synonymous."

    We all long to succeed in every area of life, in our careers, our relationships, and our finances. But in the daily pursuit of our dreams, we can forget to examine just how we measure success. The book of 1 Samuel offers striking contrasts between succeeding God’s way and trying to achieve goals by any means necessary. This guide examines the life of King David, and shares how we can find true success through our character, conduct, and lifestyle.

  • book study - parenting - PAUL DAVID TRIPP

    Starting on September 13, 2017

    Wednesdays from 6:00-7:30PM

    Study leaders: Richard & Nicci Allen

    Childcare provided

    SIGN UP


    In the midst of folding laundry, coordinating carpool schedules, and breaking up fights, many parents get lost. Feeling pressure to do everything "right" and raise up "good" children, it's easy to lose sight of our ultimate purpose as parents in the quest for practical tips and guaranteed formulas.

    In this life-giving book, Paul Tripp offers parents much more than a to-do list. Instead, he presents us with a big-picture view of God's plan for us as parents. Outlining fourteen foundational principles centered on the gospel, he shows that we need more than the latest parenting strategy or list of techniques. Rather, we need the rescuing grace of God—grace that has the power to shape how we view everything we do as parents.

    Freed from the burden of trying to manufacture life-change in our children's hearts, we can embrace a grand perspective of parenting overflowing with vision, purpose, and joy.
