Men’s Ministry

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 Disciple of Jesus Christ. 

Our mission is to create opportunities for men to Gather Together as a community of godly men, to Grow in their knowledge of and relationship with Jesus Christ, 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 Don Mardock. For more information, contact Tom Walker.

Hope Center Go-Mow-Grow

Men, once again we have the chance to GO and serve the Hope Center and their mission to rebuild one of the most under-resourced communities in Kansas City.   Our job for the third consecutive year is to MOW and weed-eat the grounds on their campus on the corner of Linwood and Belfountaine.  They love it that we “own” it by scheduling the people and knowing the facility in such a way that they know things will get done.
Our opportunity is to GROW by making this a small group activity.  Just one week is all we ask.  Click on the link below to volunteer your group and select the date(s) that work best for you.  2 to 5 guys can knock it out in 2 or 1 hour.
For more details, email Rob Ames.
