Our Men’s Ministry is dedicated to providing men with opportunities to make a difference and connect with one another. We believe the age-old proverb that says, As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another. (Proverbs 27:17) Verde has developed a wide variety of groups for men of all life stages because every man matters.
Our desire is for men to experience the adventure of a relationship with Jesus and with other men exploring what it means to be a man created in God’s image. Throughout the year, our guys come together for adventure, hiking, growth groups, bible studies, men’s breakfasts, and an annual men’s summit. Because we believe men want to make a difference, we have mission and community projects where we use our tools and get our hands dirty.
If you are interested in getting connected and growing with others, we invite you to join us. Paul Zienka, our Men’s Ministry Team Leader, works in many different facets in order to provide a great ministry for the men of Verde.

THERE’S A PLACE FOR YOU!
Our vision at Verde is to have everyone in our church involved in either a Growth Group or another similar small group experience.
WHAT IS A GROWTH GROUP?
Here at Verde, Growth Groups are made up of 8 – 14 people just like you. They’re the place where the real ministry of the church takes place as we study God’s Word, encourage one another and share life together.
Growth Groups are led by trained leaders and meet on various days of the week in homes throughout the Verde Valley. An average meeting includes refreshments and lasts for an hour and a half. We have fall and spring semester growth groups that last 10 weeks. At the end of each session, you will have the choice of staying in the same group, trying a new group or even taking a break. During the summer months, most growth groups take a break.
Most groups are sermon-based where you get to roll up your sleeves and discuss how Sunday’s sermon works in real life. Some are special interest groups focusing on topics such as parenting, marriage, healthy living and Christian basics for new believers.
Summer growth groups: mid-June through July.
Fall semester growth groups: September through mid-November.
Spring semester growth groups: February through mid-April.

Worship literally means “to attribute worth to someone or something”. We desire to worship God as “true worshipers” do; “in spirit and in truth”. We worship many things in our lives whether it be our new phone, sports teams or our favorite series on Netflix. God deserves the prominent place in our worship, above all those things.
One of the ways we worship Him at Verde is through singing to God as a group on Sunday mornings. We do this exuberantly as those who have been rescued by our Good Shepherd from sin and death.
Our style is somewhat blended. We sing many new songs from Hillsong, Bethel, and Passion, but also do many of the great hymns of our faith.
Our worship is a reflection of a life transformed by Jesus. As the old hymn states, “I sing because I’m happy, I sing because I’m free, His eye is on the sparrow and I know He watches me”. This is our God. This is how he cares for us. We’d be honored to have you worship with us!
