Men’s Ministry

Mountain Movers Men's Ministry

“I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” - Matthew 17:20

Who We Are

Men of faith are strong, courageous, trusting and serving, who have the faith of a mustard seed to be Mountain Movers.

At First Baptist Nashville, we want to help our men become Mountain Movers. Our Men’s Ministry is a place to join and connect with other men in their journeys toward Christ-centeredness. We do this through studying His Word, sharing life experiences, serving others, and embracing the outdoors and the creation of our Heavenly Father. 

We also provide spiritual development opportunities throughout the year, focusing on service and adventure.

Men @ Prayer 

All men are invited to weekly prayer on Tuesday mornings from 7-7:30 a.m. in Room 140. We gather for directed prayer for ministries, staff, missions and outreach opportunities of the church as well as for true revival in our community and world.

Those who wish to participate in Men @ Prayer can park for free in Lot D. (See map for location.)

Kingdom Men

Wednesdays | 5:45 p.m. | Room 340
Kingdom Men is an ongoing men's Bible study group that has been meeting for the past year. Now is a great time to join us as we experience God's presence and discuss God's calling for the men in this world. C.S. Lewis was one of the most important writers of the 20th Century, and we are just now starting the second portion of his classic Mere Christianity, in which he explores the common ground upon which all of those of Christian faith stand together. Bringing together Lewis's legendary broadcast talks during World War II from his three previous books, The Case for Christianity, Christian Behavior, and Beyond Personality, Mere Christianity provides an unequaled opportunity to hear this powerful apologetic for the Christian faith.
