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.

Dan Deeble @ Everyman Friday on April 24th!
6:30am-7:30am Friday, April 24th
If you have never been to an Every Man Friday event, this is one you won’t want to miss! Our own Dan Deeble will be our featured guest as he encourages & challenges us to be “Bold & Stout-hearted” as men of faith. We’ll get a sneak-peak into the Four Core Questions Dan regularly asks himself as a leader, and hear his heart and passion about the impact that a movement of Christ-centered men can accomplish in our homes, workplaces, and world! Come at 6:15am on Friday, April 24th to the Dock for coffee and doughnuts. Everyman Friday begins promptly at 6:30 and is done by 7:30 so that we can make it to work on time.
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!

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!
