Men's Ministries

Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong.

1 Corinthians 16:13

Men are very important to us at PVBC.  God has called men to be the spiritual leaders of their families, and our desire is to help them be the best leaders they can possibly be.  In order to accomplish this, we have many ministries to encourage, nurture, and involve men in fellowship and ministry.

Here are some alarming statistics:

  • On any given Sunday, there are 13 million more adult women than men in America’s churches.
  • More than 90 percent of American men believe in God, and five out of six call themselves Christians, but only two out of six attend church on any given Sunday. The average man accepts the reality of Jesus Christ, but fails to see any value in going to church.
  • Fewer than 10 percent of U.S. churches are able to establish or maintain a vibrant men’s ministry.

We don't want this to be the case in our families!  We target our men and help encourage them to become the spiritual leader God desires them to be.  Young men, senior men, or any age in between: you can get plugged in to our active, growing men’s ministry.  Here are just some of the ministries we offer to men:

  • Outdoor Ministry
    • Christian Outdoor Ministry – this ministry conducts several outdoor events each year, including turkey shoots, fishing expos, camp-outs, and even a wild game feast. Check the church calendar for scheduled events.
  • Men's Fellowships
    • Manna Men’s Breakfast Group is your opportunity to enjoy a good meal with other men (mostly retired) but, more importantly, it is an opportunity share each other’s needs in a proactive way.  We meet at the North East Family Restaurant, 2240 Pulaski Hwy, North East, MD at 7:30 a.m. the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month. For more information, contact Jim Backert at 443-877-7601 or
    • Special Events and Conferences – We hold occasional conferences just for men to teach and equip them in the area of spiritual leadership in the home and workplace.
  • Men's Softball  
    • We participate in a local Southern Baptist church softball league.  If you are interested in joining the team, call the church office.
