It's no secret that men do not normally line up to join small groups. Their reasons for resisting are usually complex, often practical, and sometimes a little paranoid. It's not that they don't want to be in a group. All men want to be in a small group—until they find out they have to go to one.

Ask any guy if he wants to be in a "band of brothers." The answer is almost always yes. He wants to be accepted, admired, and protected by men he accepts, admires, and protects. Acceptance: in spite of his shortcomings. Admiration: of each other's complementary strengths. Protection: as we look out for each other and watch each other's backs.

At TWBC, we recognize and address the need for men to bond and communicate.  We strive to make sure that men have a sense of belonging and that we will walk this our together.  No Man Left Behind.  For more information, please contact small groups pastor Jeff Tiemeyer at
