Men's Ministry


Men's Ministry 5Young or old, new to the faith or life-long believer, we are grateful you want to find out more about men’s ministry. The goal of our men’s ministry is to equip and empower men to follow Jesus, lead their families, invest in others, and model Christ in their lives. We seek to offer opportunities for connection and fellowship among men in various walks of life through shared meals, Bible studies, retreats (and the occasional sporting clay outing).

Our hope is that each man would be involved in ways that challenge, equip, and empower him to pursue the heart of Christ in every aspect of his life.

Sporting Clays at Pursell Farms

Men's Ministry 6Men of the Advent (and friends) are invited to join us at Pursell Farms on Saturday, August 26, to shoot sporting clays. Shooters of any level are more than welcome!

Check-in will be from 7:45 to 8:15 a.m., with the wobble stand open for those who would like to warm-up ($10 for 12 shots). Please plan to arrive no later than 8:15 a.m. The shoot will begin at 8:45 a.m. and conclude around 11:30 a.m.

Registration is $90 per person and includes a full round on the sporting clay shooting course as well as a cart. We will be in shooting groups of four men. After the shoot, we’ll gather on the porch while we wait for the final scores. The registration fee does not include lunch, gun rental, or ammo.  You may bring your own gun and ammo, or you may rent a gun and/or buy ammo that morning. 

If you have an extra gun that someone else can use, please mark that on your registration.  If you do not have a gun, please mark that on your registration, and we will do our best to match you with someone who can let you borrow one. 

This is our third year to do this.  It is a great way to start the fall, gathering with other men from the Advent. Feel free to invite a friend or neighbor.

The deadline to register is Sunday, August 20, and we are limited to 48 men. If you have any questions, contact Gil Kracke at gil@cathedraladvent.com or 205-226-3516.
