“Iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another. – Proverbs 27:17
Wildmen started out in 2002 with 8 men who got together to attend a “40 Days of Purpose” small group. Designed to promote discipleship, fellowship, worship, ministry and outreach, Wildmen provides a safe place where men can come and be men as they grow in their walk with Jesus Christ.
We have Wildmen Outposts and Wildmen Allies.
Outposts are independent sites that typically do not meet in a church, although they might. Outposts minister to men from multiple church congregations, or to men who presently do not attend a church congregation. Allies are sites that are part of the men’s ministry of a specific church congregation. The difference is that one is independent, and the other is a ministry of the church that they meet in or represent. Some have the Wildmen name, some do not. But they are all part of the brotherhood.
Here is a tri-fold handout in PDF format that you can download and print that gives some more information about who we are and what we do.
In our 2011 Boot Camp we had a powerful presentation by Tammy McClelland about “A Beauty Rescued“. For several years we sold this video for $15, with the proceeds going to a trust fund for Tammy and her children. The entire presentation is now available to watch for free at this link. Be sure to read the “A bit more background” section below the videos.
What We Believe
We believe in God the Holy Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe that Jesus Christ, who was God in the flesh; died, arose again, and now sits at the right hand of the Father, making intercession on behalf of the believer.
We believe in the person, work, power, fruit and gifts of the Holy Spirit, who teaches and comforts the believer.
- We believe the sixty-six canonical books of the Bible as originally written, are the divinely inspired and inerrant Word of God. As such, the Bible provides the only foundation of Christian faith and practice.
- We believe that faith in the atoning sacrifice and grace of Jesus Christ is the only basis for eternal salvation, and true faith results in works of righteousness. We believe the mission of the church is to advance God’s Kingdom by extending to the world the love of God in word and in deed and to disciple the believers into spiritual maturity.
- We believe the only way possible to live the Christian life is by God’s power within us; therefore, we seek to practice a daily dependence on God’s Spirit to enable us to do what is right.
- We believe that Jesus Christ will return visibly to the earth to judge the living and the dead.
