Kensington Men's Ministries | Winter 2023

Iron sharpens iron (Proverbs 27:17) and we become better men, husbands and dads. Everyone benefits when a man becomes a Godly man. This doesn’t happen with good intentions. It happens when men choose to commit. We have a lot of opportunities for men to engage. Not only do we have a weekly mid-sized group that meets at the church, but we have smaller groups that meet in various locations throughout the week. We also have groups for men who love to work on cars, or to hunt and fish, or to serve others while working on home projects.

Kensington Men

Kensington Men is a mid-size gathering of men that meet together for large-group teaching followed by small-group discussion. We dig into topics specifically picked for men. We enjoy hanging together, encouraging each other, learning about what God has for us as men, and how we can build a legacy through the spheres we influence in our neighborhoods, the nations and the next generations.

Traverse City: The Power of Knowing God by Tony Evans
God gives every Christian the tools for an active relationship with Him, but many don't yet experience His presence in their daily lives. Dr. Tony Evans understands that the only way to deeply know God is to make seeking Him your life's greatest purpose. In The Power of Knowing God, he shares how you can prioritize God over all else, and how doing so will transform you from the inside out.
