Men's GroupThe Men of Granada
Because our expression is imperfect, we need friendships to fill in the imperfections.
– G. K. Chesterton –
We have many ministry opportunities for the men of Granada, and the men in our community! In addition to conferences, retreats, camping and survival trips, we have many weekly and monthly activities to participate in.

More about Nate Larkin
Nate Larkin, the founder of the Samson Society and author of Samson and the Pirate Monks: Calling Men to Authentic Brotherhood, grew up as a preacher’s kid. He married his wife, Allie, on the day he graduated from St. Lawrence University, and they headed off toward Princeton Seminary and the ministry.
If you’ve heard Nate’s story, you know his plans didn’t work out so well. He was ensnared by a sexual obsession he couldn’t tame, and the fear of discovery eventually drove him to abandon the professional ministry. It’s a miracle his marriage survived.
After more than two decades of secret and steadily intensifying compulsive sexual behavior, Nate’s nightmare finally ended in a painful collision with reality. Today, he helps men heal from their hidden sins and experience the true Grace of God through the blood of Jesus. His story has been an inspiration for men across the country.
The Eagle & Child Men’s Forum
Between the 1930’s and 1960’s, a group of friends gathered at an Oxford pub, The Eagle & Child. These friends shared a love of imaginative literature, being educators and writers themselves. All were men. This was no club for the sake of formality. Each meeting was a moment shared to sharpen minds, to laugh and be themselves over a Pint and a sweetened pipe, or a good cigar. They called themselves “The Inklings.” They were friends. Join us as we meet in the spirit of this friendship. For information on date, time and location of meetings, please email Marcos Ruiz at email@example.com.
Bible Study Tuesday 7:00 a.m. – 8:00 a.m.
With an emphasis on studying the Word we have tackled a number of books in the Bible verse by verse, sometimes, word by word. There is great care to learn the meatier and substantive issues that surround the texts, as well as every day application to our lives. Discussion is always lively. This time frame fits the schedule of men who need to be at work early. Meet in the Conference Room (located on the South side of the Fellowship Hall) from 7:00 to 8:00 a.m.
Monday Night BSF (7:00 – 9:30)
Men’s BSF (Bible Study Fellowship) meets every Monday Night (7:00 – 9:30). Newcomers can start each 1st Monday of each month.
The Granada Man ministry exists in light of the Granada vision by teaching men to reject passivity, accept responsibility and lead courageously at home and in our community; none of which can be achieved without an understanding of God’s furious grace.
