Have you considered volunteering for the Men's Planning Team? We're looking for men of all ages with an interest in seeing the men of SEC and our community go deeper in their relationship with Christ! Men who want to know Christ deeply; reflect Christ authentically and share Christ intentionally…and help other men get there too! If you're one of these men, we need your help as we lay the groundwork for a new and exciting time in the life of our congregation! Contact Pastor Randy and tell him you want to be a part of a revitalized work among the men of SEC!

We welcome you to Men’s Ministries of Salem Evangelical Church. We believe God has given us a unique privilege as well as a diverse command to minister for Jesus Christ to the Men of our church family. God has blessed to the point that we are able to offer a variety of ministries and a well-balanced program of growth and service opportunity for each man. These ministries are designed to ‘bring lives into harmony with God.’

Whatever you need, we are anxious to serve you and we extend the warmth and friendliness of the family of God here at Salem Evangelical. We want to get acquainted and trust that you will allow us the privilege of including you in our fellowship and in our Ministry for Christ.
