Men’s Ministries


Join us at Camp Spofford in Spofford, NH (just outside Brattleboro, VT), for our annual retreat. For information on cost options and travel arrangements, see Ken Sloan, call the Church Office at 518.399-3151 or go to the Men’s Retreat page on the Camp Spofford website.
The Men’s Ministry at EGCC has traditionally consisted of a mid-week Bible Study and occasional breakfasts that include healthy portions of food, a short message and an opportunity to catch up with one another and attempt to solve the problems of the world … you know, like guys do at breakfast! Our intention is to support the vision of the church, which is to love God, love people, and to help people become followers of Jesus.

Love God

The primary outlet for growing in God on a corporate level happens at the Wednesday Night Bible Study. That is a bridge to the teaching that is provided through Sunday School and the Sunday morning message. The Men’s Ministry recognizes that this does not come remotely close to addressing the necessary consumption of God’s word or the outpouring of our love, adoration and obedience to our eternal king. The foundational expectation for those who participate in Men’s Ministry activities is that they are reading scripture daily, praying multiple times a day and meditating on God’s Word and what His will is for our lives. Men are encouraged to grow through daily spiritual disciplines in order to breathe life into others. For those who are new to the faith and are looking for mentorship or additional Bible Studies should reach out to me at

Love People

The most significant event this year that helped us to love other folks was when we participated in the church outreach to the community. The group of four that I was a part of went into the community near the church and prayed with people in 12 different households. Between all of the church ministries, hundreds of invitations were extended to neighbors to attend our Easter service.

Starting last year, we had men pair up to be prayer partners.  Hopes were that the Holy Spirit would drive that and lead these men into accountability and mentoring relationships.

Loving People comes down to the individual man being filled with God’s Holy Spirit to love others and proclaim the Good News of the Gospel to others. The Men’s Ministry cannot institutionalize that, but rather encourage and walk alongside any God-fearing man being convicted to do God’s will.

Help People Become Followers of Jesus

This is happening on an individual basis. Men’s Ministry at its finest is man to man. Iron sharpening iron. This is where we can be transparent and come under the authority of Jesus and abide in His commands.
Events and schedules will be posted to this page as plans are made and details are available. For more information, please contact the Church Office.
