I am a graduate of Collierville High School, Class of 2002 and the University of Tennessee and the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. I love all things British. I enjoy a good cup of coffee, a good book, and a beautiful autumn day. My family and I snow ski, disc golf, and cheer for the Vols on Saturdays.
About Men’s Ministry
- Central Men desires to form men that love Christ and each other with authenticity, freedom, commitment, and service.
At Central, we believe all men serve a special role in our workplaces, our families, and the church. Therefore, Central Men exist to challenge men to be satisfied in Christ alone. So, they can be effective in the different spheres God has placed them.
Central Men meets weekly for lunch and fellowship. Monthly for breakfast and bible study, and annually for retreats and conferences. However, the heart of Central Men is our shepherd groups, where a small group of men meet for accountability, prayer, and friendship.
Join a Men’s Shepherd Group
Shepherd Groups are groups of men who meet every week to check in on each other, dig deeper into God’s word, and build up the team of men at Central. It’s a way to take what we learn in our Sunday services and unpack it so that we can all be better leaders at home and at work.
The Trendsetters Retreat is our men’s retreat on February 24th-25th. The theme is essentialism for the Christian man. We hope you will plan to join us for a weekend of biblical instruction, fellowship, and service.
Our retreat speaker is Rusty McKie. He is the founder of Steadfast Ministries. He is also the author of the great book, Sabbaticals: “How-To” Take a Break from Ministry before Ministry Breaks You. He is also the host of the podcast, “The Art of Stability.” You can find more information about Rusty at his website, https://www.steadfastmin.com/.
