Men & Women’s Ministries

Men’s Ministries

Men are called to be leaders in their homes, workplaces and communities. Men are called to be servants and to commit their lives to the ongoing process of godliness. As brothers in Christ, we challenge each other to pursue the things of God with commitment and passion. We want men to grow in their faith in a community of acceptance and support, and so we have a variety of offerings to encourage men in their faith. “We proclaim Him, admonishing every man and teaching every man with all wisdom, so that we may present every man complete in Christ.” (Col. 1:28)

Women’s Ministries

Women are vital to the ministries of the church. The early church was radical in that it encouraged women to learn about theology and Jesus and deemed them as equal image bearers of God, with distinct roles. At Island Christian Church, we want women to embrace their role int he church, grow in their knowledge of the Bible and their love for Jesus, and connect with support each other. We have opportunities uniquely focused on women and their needs so that you can find a place to plug in and grow in your faith! “A woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.” (Proverbs 31:30)
