About Wildmen

The Wildmen Ministry Logo

“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 relationship with Jesus Christ. As you can see below, God is growing this ministry!

You may notice that 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.

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.

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.

Venselli,
I can’t believe it’s going on 12yrs since we’ve seen one another and laughed about those “good ole” days at 1359 Dew Bloom Rd – Valrico, FL. You will forever be the man sent for me to mentor, to shepherd, sometimes protect and oftentimes lean on.I love and miss you terribly praying for you, like the Apostle Paul said, “as often as I think of you.” I know the Lord saved your disastrous life by sending you off to Africa. I pray that our paths meet again. “Father, Lord, God, thank You for the predestined, purposed plan of having two lost souls, in need of great guidance and repair, come together, with Your Holy Spirit to keep us between the lines, become brothers in Christ Jesus developing a bond that shall only strengthen as our individual journeys walk closely with You as our Shepherd, our Compass, our Barometer, our Daily Bread, our Living Water, our Father, our Friend. Wherever, Whatever, However my brother, from another mother, on my Father’s side is right now touch him, as only You can, letting him know all is very well with his big brother in Florida. In Jesus’ name I so humbly and reverently pray. Amen.”
