Men of the Covenant


This Summer, the Men of the Covenant ministry is excited to offer two men’s studies that we hope will encourage us to grow closer to the Lord by meeting weekly over Zoom. We realize that meeting virtually isn’t anyone’s favorite option but we are thankful for this tool to help us to grow through spiritual encouragement and accountability. Please register here so that we can begin to organize our breakout groups. After the teaching time we will move each participant who desires into a private small group for discussion, accountability and prayer.

The Men’s Ministry of Briarwood Presbyterian Church is called “Men of the Covenant,” and our goal is to ensure that our church and our families, in this generation and the next, are led by strong, able, Christ-like men. We believe that building men of character and conviction is one of the highest priorities in the mission of the church. Discipleship-oriented courses make up the nucleus of our ministry. Other special events tailored especially for men round out our focus on equipping men to “act like men.” Questions? Please contact Eric Reebals for more information.

…that in everything He might be preeminent (Colossians 1:18).
