Heartland’s men’s ministry operates under the banner of ”Everyman Ministry.”
Everyman Ministry’s vision is to lead every participating man to be a follower of Jesus.
Our mission is to create opportunities for men to gather together as a community, to grow in their knowledge of and relationship with Jesus, and to go and serve him by serving others.
Men’s Journey -
Men’s Journey is an opportunity to grow in Christ with other men who face the same life challenges as you. You have two options for taking part in Men’s Journey. We meet every Friday at 6:15 am at Heartland and at 6:30 am at Homer’s Coffee House on 80th Street just west of Metcalf. If you are new to Men’s Journey you should feel free to drop in any Friday. At both locations, we have a “launch group” just for those not yet connected to a group. At Heartland, ask for Tom Walker, and at Homer’s ask for Brad Gregory. For more information, contact Tom Walker.
Everyman Friday moved to March 27, featuring guest Dr. Richard Biery
6:30am-7:30am Friday, March 27th
We invite you to join us on Friday, March 27th to our next Everyman Friday featuring guest presenter Dr. Richard Biery. Dr. Biery was the Director of Health for Kansas City MO for over twenty years until stepping down from his post to form his own consulting firm – The BroadBaker Group – specializing in helping organizations and ministries achieve excellence in board governance, leadership, and management performance. Today’s talk is entitled “How Then Should We Live?” and is inspired by the Bible passage, Micah 6:8. Dr Biery will encourage and challenge us to connect the dots on how we, as a Christ followers, are to interact with God, with our family and friends, and outside of ourselves in the world. Join us in the Dock at 6:15am for coffee and donuts. As always, we will get started at 6:30 and have you on your way to work by 7:30.

Habitat for Humanity Serve Day—Saturday, April 18th (8am-4pm)
8:00am-4:00pm Saturday, April 18th
We can’t think of a better way to point our “Arrows Out” this April than to rally men from our Tuesday Night Men’s Journey group at Heartland to serve a family in need through Habitat for Humanity! We need 15 guys to sign up and set aside Saturday, April 18th to serve alongside a family in need of a place to call home. There will be plenty of work to be done for everyone regardless of your previous carpentry experience—or lack thereof. Just bring a hammer, work-gloves, and a smile, and be prepared to help out AND have a lot of fun!
We will begin on-site at 8am on April 18th, and folks can feel free to leave after lunch or stick around through the afternoon (residence address, location, and specific project list will be forthcoming). Please sign up here so that we can plan food accordingly, and don’t hesitate to contact Bill McMurtrey if you have any questions Bill McMurtreyindhorse10@yahoo.com.
Men’s Ministry is pointing our “Arrows Out” this April!
If you’ve been around Heartland for awhile, you know that we’re passionate about pointing our “Arrows Out” towards the last, least, and lost in our community and world. So – in light of this, and in an effort to lead out as men at Heartland – we are postponing our monthly men’s event this April, and are actively sending you to point your “Arrows Out” instead! You can serve anywhere; at Heartland, with other men at Habitat for Humanity, with one of our ministry partners like Mission Adelante or Hope Center, OR you can grab a few buddies and meet a need you see around you! It doesn’t matter where you serve, but it is up to YOU to prayerfully seek God as to where to go out, and then to actively engage in meaningful service wherever the Lord Leads. Let’s see how much good we can do for Christ and others this month, and see what God does!

New Men’s Study in 2015: The New Testament – Understanding the Story we find ourselves in
Have you ever found the Bible to be hard to read, and even harder to understand? You may be familiar with the life of Jesus, but have you ever struggled to find the rest of the New Testament to be relevant and meaningful to you in the business of your everyday life? Have you resolved to find a way to grow closer to God & to community in 2015? If you answered ‘Yes’ to any of these questions, then this 12-week class is for you! At Heartland, we believe that everyone can understand and encounter God through the Bible, and we want to invite & challenge you to join other men at Heartland for this exciting exploration of God through the Story of the New Testament. No prior experience with Bible is necessary, but even seasoned participants in Bible Studies will be encouraged and challenged throughout this course. Space is limited so, so sign up today!
