Grill Kings Men's Ministry

God. Grub. Guys.

What is it?
Grill Kings is an informal opportunity for men to gather around the grill and talk about their lives in the Light of God’s Word while enjoying some delicious grub.

Grill Kings is a place for men by men to address the issues men face:
  • Work/Life Balance
  • Managing Expectations
  • Marriage and Family
  • Male Leadership
  • Physical, Mental, and Spiritual Health
How does it go?
Grill Kings meets for 2 hours on a Saturday night. We begin with 30 minutes of fellowship and mingling, followed by a demonstration of grilling practices of the food (steak, chicken, pork, vegetables, etc) our host has prepared.

After the demonstration and the meal, we’ll join for Bible study on the appointed topic. You’ll receive a bookmark to take that topic home with you.

What do I bring?
  • A friend
  • $5 for the host to reimburse him for meat/sides
  • Beverages to share
  • Bible (if you don’t have one, we’ll have extra!)
