Men's Ministry

Band of Brothers—the Men’s Ministry of Houston’s First—intends to be an inviting and welcoming place for all men ages 18 and up.

Band of Brothers is dedicated to “transforming men into the image of Jesus Christ.” We strive to accomplish this by offering a variety of entry points and opportunities for men to grow spiritually, physically, relationally with other men and to engage in various levels of service at Houston’s First, in the community, and around the world.

Men, we welcome your participation to help make the Band of Brothers all our Lord desires us to be as we sharpen one another towards transformation through Jesus Christ our Lord.
