Summer Study:
When life falls apart and we need God’s comfort; in moments of cultural turmoil when we need His clarity;
facing formidable decisions when we need His guidance; desiring a deeper faith when we need God to say something, anything,
to turn the monologue we call prayer into a genuine conversation. Registration is required, contact Buz.

Monday Nights
We will be discussing the book: How to Hear God: A Simple Guide for Normal People by Pete Greig
You can purchase the book on Amazon
We meet:
Mondays, July 10 – Aug 14
7:00 pm, in C-205B Gazebo Deck



We have a handful of groups just for men:

Anthony Lombardi & Sean Englert (Common Ground) – Our Common Interest Group for Dads of all ages is called COMMON GROUND, “The Significant Journey of Becoming a Dad.” Common Ground is a safe, fun and challenging environment, where men commit to learning from the Bible and each other, while coming alongside other fathers with the purpose of becoming better dads. We meet for breakfast at Encinitas Cafe, fellowship and Biblical dad training. For more information and directions, please contact Sean Englert and Anthony Lombardi. – Every other Wed at thew Encinitas Cafe at 6:30am – 8:00am –  email Sean.

Bill Richardson – Every Wednesday on Story Caffe at 7:00am – email Bill.

Jon Templeton – Fridays at 7:00am (currently on Zoom but hopefully will be moving soon to on-campus in room A-105) – email Jon.

Mo Rau – Saturdays at 8:00am (Room A-104 on campus)

In addition, we continue strive to meet the needs of an ever-changing culture by offering a wide variety of small group experiences. Consider HOME GROUPS, which are gatherings of all adult ages and life-stages for individuals, couples, or families; other ON-CAMPUS GROUPS, which are typically larger gatherings men, women or couples that meet each week to engage in round-table discussions based on live or video teaching; and, COMMON INTEREST GROUPS that bring people together around activities, sports, fitness or felt needs. 


Band of Brothers

Band of Brothers meet on Tuesdays at 6:00pm in room B-100 (Fireside Room) for a meal, worship and testimonies, followed by round table discussions and personal prayer. It’s not a Bible study as the emphasis in on the testimony of the invited speaker and a forum for confidential prayer over our joys and challenges. They shall be known by their love…John 13:35.

The 4th Musketeer (4MUS)

Comfort and control might be attending another retreat, another conference, another Saturday morning breakfast. If you want different results then DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT. 4MUS is uniquely designed to take you out of your comfort zone and to create an environment of inspiration and challenge. So if you desire to become a husband, father, friend or brother who experiences a lasting impression of an adventure that gives you new insights into your life and your relationship with God, then sign up for a 4M event today. Choices will be made, brotherhood formed, the Church and families strengthened, and you will no longer be the same.

4MUS hosts several adventure experiences designed to strengthen you and your family. The adventures include: Xtreme Character Challenge, Father/Son Challenge, Fatherhood Challenge and Muskathon. Click Adventures that transform men’s lives | The 4th Musketeer ( to learn more about 4MUS.
