As men, we are called to a special relationship with God. Like Adam walking and talking with him in the garden, we too are invited into a personal and intimate relationship with him.  

As men, we have the privilege of being instruments of love and encouragement to those God brings into our lives; the focus being on our families. To accomplish this calling, we must keep our eyes fixed on Jesus, surrendering our agenda for the purposeful will of our Creator. 

Ovid's Men's Ministries focus on supporting and discipling men in today's challenging social environment. Together we pursue righteousness, learn about God's calling for our lives, and strive to be vessels of encouragement and truth in a broken world.
