Men's & Women's Ministry
We are currently offering a Monday morning Bible Study, hosted by Ashleigh Esau. It happens at 9:15am offsite, so please click here to contact Ashleigh for her address and any other questions you may have.
Our vision for Men's Ministry is Jesus banding men together and making disciples who fight for families and the hearts of men!
During the ministry season, we have several events offered for men and boys (some age recommendations on some events). Please click on the boxes below for information, contact and registration information, if applicable.
Approximately once per month we plan Saturday morning breakfasts for Men from 8:00-9:30am. Each morning features a different guest speaker with a message or testimony. All breakfasts are by donation and we welcome you inviting whomever you please!
Men are welcome to bring their sons aged 12+ to join us for the morning.
Please check our calendar for the next date. Online RSVP is available for two weeks leading up to the breakfast, closing the Thursday before.
Drop-In Floor Hockey
Every Tuesday we have an open gym time for men to play floor hockey. Join us from 7:30-9:30pm unless otherwise posted. If you'd like more information, please email Brad Krahn.
Is God calling you to join the Elijah Force to intentionally pray for our Pastors?
James 5:16b-17: "The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective. Elijah was a man just like us. He prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the land for three and a half years. Again he prayed, and the heavens gave rain, and the earth produced crops."
God has raised up a band of Spiritual Warrior Brothers who have a heart, love and passion to pray over and for those God has placed in authority over us, the Pastors at South Abbotsford Church. God has designed us as men to be spiritual leaders and to resist spiritual passivity.
How it works is, each man is asked to pray and seriously consider the following responsibilities before committing to becoming apart of the Elijah Force. The commitment involves:
- One day per month of individual time to pray 1/2-1 hour for the pastoral team of South Abbotsford Church on his designated day. (The pastors provide monthly "prayer needs and praise news")
- Once per month the Elijah Force individually support-teams also meet with one of the pastors for a time of prayer covering. This is critical, not only a physical demonstration of our commitment to our pastors but also our stand against the spiritual forces of evil to protect our leaders. In addition, this is an opportunity to build relationships and trust.
- The entire Elijah Force along with the pastors meet 3 times per year at the church for a time of corporate prayer. This is a time to corporately lock shields and gather around our pastors.
- A commitment to a minimum one year term.
Currently, there are about 40 men on the Elijah Force team. If you are interested in joining the Elijah Force or have questions, click here to email the team.
