Encouraging, equipping and challenging each other to seek Jesus.

The passion of our heart is to help men to begin a dynamic relationship with Christ, grow in Christ, and be vitally connected to First Baptist Church Columbia or a healthy local church so that they may serve Him.

It is also our deep desire to help men develop ministries of outreach in their own marketplace as well as develop or repair relationships men have within their family and beyond.. 

Men's Discipleship


Watch this video from our most recent REAL gathering.

REAL Men’s Discipleship would like to invite all men to join them on Tuesday, January 23rd at 5:45 PM in Ellis Hall. There will be dinner, worship and a guest speaker, our new Discipleship Pastor, Jacob Helsley. REAL is a ministry that focuses on building up men in the Lord through small group discipleship. Being a part of REAL means meeting with a small group weekly to discuss God’s word and be accountable to other men as you grow. It’s designed to get men talking with each other about REAL problems, hardships and struggles. It’s also designed to give men authentic community with men who will pray, encourage and point each other to the truths in God’s word. If you are looking for this kind of personal small group discipleship, please register below.

Throughout the year we gather for a meal with worship, prayer and a biblical message from a guest speaker.

We also meet weekly or bi-weekly in small groups known as CREWS going through a study together in the Bible or in other biblical curriculum. Through a CREW we are able to have strong community with other men as well as grow in our walk with the Lord.
