Our mission: St. David’s Men’s Fellowship is dedicated to creating opportunities for men to develop vital friendships, personal integrity, and profound Christ-centered growth.
After that ﬁrst breakfast a group of men came together, including myself, who met every Sunday for nine months to work out what the organization was going to do; and what it was going to be called. The issue of the name centered around whether it should be called a Fellowship or a Ministry. The question was, would we look like a country club or a spiritual group? In the end, we decided to call it a Fellowship, believing it would attract more men to join the group. What has happened over the last 20 years is that we gained more than any of us could have hoped for, both organizationally and spiritually.
Today, we have a core group of over 250 men. We have been hosting one of our major activities, the monthly Saturday Breakfast, for 10 months out of the year for 20 years working out to 200 breakfasts. The Men’s Friday morning Bible Study started roughly around 2003 and have met every Friday since then amounting to over 884 meetings. We held the ﬁrst Men’s Retreat in 2004, which was ﬁlled with a weekend of personal and spiritual growth. We have conducted 16 retreats overall. I believe the important thing is not only that we have done these events, but that we are involved in many other aspects of the church, providing support and leadership.
In the future it will be the dedication of our members and the support of The Rev. Frank Allen and other clergy that will keep us strong.
