Men@Second

Men@Second is a growing group for all types of men -- Busy, Single, Married, Dads, Dads-To-Be, or Grand-dads!

Our mission is to encourage men of all ages to live courageously for Christ, supporting and uplifting each other through prayer, education, and fellowship.

So who makes up this Men@Second group?  If you are at Second we already consider you a welcome part of Men@Second.

We welcome you to join us for:

  • Monthly Dads Fellowship - We meet the third Wednesday of each month from 6 to 8 p.m. to meet other dads and to grow together. All men, dads, and grand-dads are welcome. Children are welcome, too. Bring them and give your wife the night off (She deserves it!).

    Your children and youth are invited to join us for dinner from 6 - 6:30, where we will celebrate and engage them with our many dads. At 6:30 they'll go to child care or their respective youth program.
     
  • Social Events - March Madness and various events are commonly offered -- some just for dads, some for the whole family.
     
  • Retreats - Here's something you don't hear often in the same sentence:  zip-line, trap shooting, paint ball, and spiritual growth! However, it wouldn't be November without our annual pilgrimage to lovely SpringHill Camp in Seymour, Indiana for these great activities. Twenty hours that you won't soon forget!
     
  • Mission Activities - From cooking at the Kenya Carnival to orchestrating Date Nights at the church to just giving moms a needed break, Dads are involved in those mission activities that are on the hearts of the dads in our group.

Over the past few years, the Men@Second ministry has encouraged men to seek "Success That Matters."
Now for the remainder of the year we’ll examine the balance of life and work.


Men@Second is offering several events that can help us delve into this tough issue for men today.

Don't miss any of these opportunities to help you find balance in your life:

More about our speaker: Brett Clemmer
President, Man in the Mirror

Brett Clemmer is a husband, father, disciple-maker, outdoor enthusiast, and avid Boston sports fan.
Brett joined Man in the Mirror in 2000 and serves as President. His passion is to make the church relevant to younger men and men on the fringe. In his writing and speaking, Brett breaks through the resistance that many men feel toward spiritual topics with his use of personal stories and humor.

Brett is the co-author with Patrick Morley and David Delk of No Man Left Behind: How to Build and Sustain a Thriving Disciple-Making Ministry for Every Man in Your Church, and various articles and discipleship materials offered by the ministry.

Prior to Man in the Mirror, Brett worked in both the nonprofit and business sectors. Among other pursuits, he has run a juvenile detention shelter, a 700-bed homeless program, and the startup of a software company.
Brett and his wife Kimberly live just outside of Orlando, Florida. They have been married since 1991, and have two amazing kids, Cassidy and Jackson. Brett loves to hang out with his wife, go on rock climbing trips, and spend time with his friends. His latest hobby is riding a mountain bike (sometimes into gator-infested rivers).

“Men are struggling,” shares Brett. “I’ve had the opportunity to speak to men literally around the world. You know what? Most men struggle with the same things. They want to do it all on their own. Like Habakkuk says, ‘We worship our own strength.’ Unfortunately, it often takes a crisis to help men realize they need the love, grace and power of Christ to become the men they somehow sense they were made to be.”
