Take Charge Men's Fellowship

First Sunday's at 8am

Take Charge Men's Fellowship with Pastor Ricky Temple

Join the OBF Men's Ministry for Take Charge Men's Fellowship as we dialogue with the Pastor before Sunday service on the first Sunday of the month. Coffee and light refreshments are served at 8am with full breakfast starting at 10:00am. This is a great way to meet men that will support and challenge you in your walk with God.

PIVOT Men's Conference

PIVOT is more than a gathering, or a concert. It is a worship experience created by men, for men. Every man needs to make a course correction or an adjustment at times. The OBF Men's Ministry attends this empowering conference each year. The experience and knowledge gained from this conference is one that is life changing.
