Let’s Be REAL

God wants to use us as leaders to accomplish His purposes. From the beginning of our existence the enemy has attempted to thwart God’s plans for us by targeted our relationship with God. God understands the challenges we face as men and he has given us tools to combat the enemy. It is imperative that we as REAL Christian men disciple, walk, and pray with each other to ensure that we live and exemplify the men God has called us to be. It’s time to be REAL.

A Season of Discipleship

Making disciples of Jesus Christ is at the core of what we’re about at REAL. That might look like helping a man get connected to Jesus Christ for the first time, or helping men go deeper in their relationship with Christ. For men wanting to take next steps, we currently offer a discipleship format called CREWs, which emphasize one-on-one, group, and individual components.

The Mission

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.

Your Crew

Our CREWs meet generally every two weeks and consist of men of all ages and backgrounds. The only agenda is to encourage each other to meet the pressing demands of personal, family and business lives using God’s principles of maximum manhood from the bible. Our time together is focused, fun, practical and informative, designed to help you connect with God and each other.
