Grand Rapids First Men’s Ministry is here to encourage and equip men to live lives fully devoted to God. The journey takes place in the context of the workplace, family relationships, and friendships with other men. Small Groups, Bible studies, and large events provide opportunities for men to experience God and connect with each other.

Pastor Tim Ryder


Designed to help every man who wants to grow spiritually and in real-life skills by creating an opportunity to connect with other men who have the same desire.

Together, we encourage one another as we look deeper into current events and the world we live in through a biblical perspective. Whatever stage of life you’re in, we want to help you become the man that God has called you to be.

Men’s Ministry meets Wednesdays, at 7 pm, in the Life Center (Den).


Join us for a time of worship and Holy Spirit-directed ministry as we share a word of encouragement or testimony reflecting God’s goodness and grace in our lives. We meet every-other Saturday morning, at 7:30 am, in the Life Center (Family Room). Click here to see the next meeting date.
