Greetings and welcome to the United Methodist Men of Thousand Oaks!
Our ministry of men seek to study, fellowship and invite and initiate spiritual growth opportunities for all men in Thousand Oaks, and even Newbury Park.
Our Ministry exists to REACH men, CONNECT them with other men, help them GROW as fully devoted followers of Christ, in order that they will SERVE God with their spiritual gifts, and HONOR Him with their lives. The statistics show that if we reach the men for Christ, the family will follow.
Jesus is our model for servant leadership and discipleship. Men have the Biblical duty to be the spiritual leaders of their households. We all desperately need connection and help sustaining balance in our lives.
"As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.” Proverbs 27:17
Any person of the MALE persuasion is invited to participate in the United Methodist Men fellowship at UMC Thousand Oaks! We have approximately 25 "active" members regularly attending retreats and bible studies, CTM (Corn Toss Ministry), Harvest food-share program and other events throughout the year.
