MEN @ SWBIBLE
We, the MEN of SWBIBLE, don't sit on the sidelines. We are about being in the game. We aren't here to be spectators or benchwarmers. We are the real thing. We are actively involved in our marriages, in our relationships with our kids, in our life with Christ, in sports and hobbies, in friendships, in serving in our local church and our local community—as well as finding time for work.
We can do all this through the strength that Christ has given us. Our first priority is to pursue our relationship with Him in order to be better men, growing and learning to serve Him with all our hearts. It is our Savior Jesus that gives us the power to lead and serve. We are men.
1. Grow in relationship with Jesus
2. Encourage each other to live for Jesus in every aspect of our lives, home, church, work and recreation
3. Help men who are new believers in Jesus or new to SWBIBLE connect with other men
Men's No Excuses Breakfast

Past Men’s Retreat Resources
The Men's Retreat 2017 - All In!
In April 2017, our retreat theme focused on being All In! What does it mean to be all in for Christ, seeking to honor him in everything! We have included resources from that retreat here.
Our Speaker: Bill Newton
Bill serves as pastor/teacher at Madison Chapel in Mars Hill, North Carolina. Bill has been a Christian for over 35 years. Before becoming a pastor, Bill graduated from the US Naval Academy, becoming a pilot and flying over 250 combat missions. After earning an MBA at Harvard, Bill worked as a business executive and owner of several companies. God intervened in Bill’s life in the 1980s, calling him into ministry to serve with Alistair Begg at Parkside Church, Cleveland Ohio prior to his current ministry.
Bill’s varied professional and personal background is a testimony of a life that is “All In.” God desires our whole heart—committed to honoring Him in every area of our lives.

The Men's Study
GROWING in our relationship with Christ - LEADING others to do the same
Tuesdays, 6-7 am in the Lobby
February 21-May 2
Book of James
Study Schedule »
Men at SWBible grasp and even practice Paul’s challenge to Timothy to take what we’ve learned from our Lord and “entrust it to faithful men who are able to teach others also.” Just walk into any coffee shop around our neighborhoods and you will see men discipling men; or sit in any elders or deacons meetings and you will find “iron sharpening iron.” We desire to excel still more in this privilege of leading for Christ’s sake in our homes, communities and this church.
