Men's Ministry


Band of Brothers—the Men’s Ministry of Houston’s First—is 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.

Warrior's Heart Bible Study

For men of all ages. This study includes a 30-minute master teacher session, followed by a practical discussion around tables. While men are encouraged to come weekly, it is not a requirement of the study. Join us every Thursday. This study meets throughout the year with several short breaks.

Five Things We Value as Men

1. Brotherhood

We value Brotherhood over isolation, team over self, camaraderie over divisions. We know that true wisdom is revealed in the community of Christ and that life is meant to be lived in the company of strong Christians in service to the King of Kings in a world bent toward destruction.

2. Courage

We value courage over cowardice and the resulting passivity. We value obedience to God in the face of uncertain (and even negative) outcomes, engaging our families and church with the servant-leadership of Christ in the face of fatigue and busyness, pressing forward to know God more and more in an age of pride and materialism.

3. Honor

We value honoring our vows and commitments, as well as honoring our Lord, friendships, and families. We value letting our “Yes” be “Yes” and our “No” be “No” instead of vacillating based on circumstances and pressure. We value honoring our Lord and Savior over our perceived needs of the moment.

4. Truth

We value basing our lives on the changeless truth of God’s Word (revealed perfectly in Christ and the Scriptures). We value searching for truth whenever we face an unknown or trying time. We value a brotherhood, which speaks truth to one another and challenges one another to live truth out, instead of merely speaking what is popular, worldly, or easiest.

5. Mission

We value Serving over being Served. We value investing our lives in a meaningful way in an age that elevates consumption, trivia, and selfishness. We value basing our life model on the life of Christ, who did not consider equality with God something to be held on to, but humbled Himself taking the very nature of a servant (Philippians 2: 6–7)

Growing Our Souls

Life Bible Studies and Milestone Classes are our main vehicles for growing our souls closer to God. They provide a place for us to explore the beauty and mystery of God's Word.
