How?


firstPursuit encourages men to connect weekly with other men to share common concerns, read the Bible, and pray for one another. Men are encouraged to listen carefully with a non-judgmental attitude and only give advice when requested. As a result, men grow in their relationships with God and build strong, lasting bonds of friendship with other men.

firstpursuit follows eight principles from the life and teaching of Jesus Christ:

  • Affirm one another (Rom 1:12; Heb 10:24)
  • Be available when others are in need (Phil 2:19, 20)
  • Be open (II Cor 6:11-12; James 5:16)
  • Be sensitive to the needs of others (John 11:32-36)
  • Be honest (II Cor 4:2; Prov 27:17)
  • Maintain confidentiality (Prov 28b; Eph 4:29)
  • Pray for one another (Phil 1:3-6; II Thes 1:11,12)
  • Grow in accountability with one another (Eph 5:21)

firstPursuit strives to:

  • introduce and connect men to the men’s ministries of local churches.
  • meet and mentor men…where they are and where they’re comfortable (over coffee, lunch, a round of golf, a hike, a ballgame, etc.). “I've become just about every sort of servant there is in my attempts to lead those I meet into a God-saved life.” (I Cor 9:22, MSG)
  • connect men with existing men’s groups.
  • help men start new groups. “And when two or three of you are together because of Me, you can be sure that I'll be there." (Matt 18:20, MSG)
