Our group began meeting in April of this year. Our vision is for "men that meet together regularly, encouraging each other through prayer, study, and sharing what God is doing in our lives. We will also plan activities for the men of Wellspring. We desire our group to be multi-generational, where men can be genuine through the ups & downs of life."

We have been meeting regularly once each month, and we are anticipating going to twice a month beginning in January 2016. Our meetings vary in size from 5 to 11. It is dynamic, as different men show up at each session.

We are striving for more consistency, despite the business of life. We are adding participants, some men new to Wellspring.

The group has been learning about leadership. Each month, we review a chapter in the book, "What God does when Men Lead." We rotate the discussion leader as men step forward to lead. We learn about The Power and Potential of Regular Guys! In October, Seth Joraanstad led us as we learned about understanding how our gifts and our passions work together as God leads us towards our destiny. I really liked the authors quote, "Knowing our gifts tells us what ammunition we have; our passions tell us the target."

In addition, we have seen answered prayer in areas of health, work, and relationships. We have shared Scripture as God works in our lives during each month. Perhaps most important, new and strong relationships have formed. We look forward to seeing what God does when we begin to meet twice a month!

In June we hosted a Men's Breakfast at Wellspring Englewood, and desire to serve others as we grow as a group. We are planning to serve at The Well on an upcoming Sunday.

Our next meeting is Tuesday, December 8th at 7:00pm at Wellspring Englewood. Contact Bill O’Connor at wjoc71@aol.com or 716-510-3856 for more details.

Come, Have some Fun, Meet the Guys, Eat, & Learn about Leading Your Family!

Eph. 6:10;  " A final word; Be strong in the Lord and His great power."
