Discipleship Groups Schedule
Mighty Men of Valor
Once every month, typically on the second Saturday of every month, men from Valiant Church — young and old, fathers and sons, teens and elders — gather together with leadership from the ministry to learn from God’s Word about His purpose for their masculinity.
In addition, the group participates in varying, adventurous and daring activities to encourage growth in their bravery, endurance, leadership, and God-given wildness. These activities include self-defense, sword-fighting, jousting, archery, wrestling, blacksmithing, capture-the-flag, survival skills, mountain-biking, hiking, fishing, ice-skating, camping, canoeing, etc.

Evangelism Training and Outreach Group
Every week, Valiant Church sends a group out on the streets to spread the gospel, love on people, heal the sick, and add souls to the kingdom of God. If you’d like to participate, attend this group! Or if you simply would like to learn how to better reach the lost and represent Christ in your sphere of influence, feel free to visit!
A short teaching on biblical evangelism is given by our pastor before hitting the streets. There’s no pressure to evangelize afterward if you’re not ready yet.

More About Our Wednesday Bible Study Group
The pattern for the church as described in the book of Acts was much more intimate than what modern churches exhibit today. Love was the foundation of all unity during the time of the Acts of the Apostles, and this love that’s rooted in Christ’s example, is what the Bible calls “the bond of perfection” (Colossians 3:14). Unconditional and enduring love from one believer to another is what creates perfect unity, harmony, and agreement in the church. The Body of Christ is to be a family of believers who fervently love one another through a magnanimous generosity, hospitality, kindness, and compassion.
God never intended for His church to become a loveless hoard of jaded, confessing Christians who come into a building to sit in a chair for an hour to listen to one minister preach. This wasn’t what the apostles of the New Testament intended either. This modern-day pattern isn’t church at all…at least not in the way that the church was designed by God to operate. Most church-goers approach their weekly, Sunday morning attendance with a selfish attitude, often times without even realizing it. Assembling together as the family of God is about being in a community where you can love and be loved–where you can both give andreceive. If we only come to church to be fed, but we don’t learn to be equipped and edified so that we may bless our surrounding church-family in return, we’ve totally missed the point of church altogether. Christ needs His body to truly represent Him as part of a corporate lifestyle, so that the lost and broken may see unified communities of believers as beacons of the true knowledge of God.
Most unchurched people end up coming to church because they’re in search of God, and rightly so. The Body of Christ is exactly supposed to be God’s manifest representation of Himself to a searching and desperate world. Sadly, many churches have become the very opposite. Hypocrisy, complacency, and selfishness in the modern-day church has provided the world with only a grieving misrepresentation of the nature of God, causing multitudes to flee from the very thing that God gave to the world as His primary means of finding Him. God is not at fault here. The modern church is the problem, and it desperately needs a reformation. And it starts with learning to love each other like Jesus loves us. Jesus Himself taught that it would be through our love for one another (fellow Christians) that the world would come to know Him (John 13:35, 17:20-23,26). Above all else, we’re to be known for our love! That’s it! It’s really simple! But it takes dedication to the cause of our Lord Jesus Christ.
