What an amazing year we had in 2019! God continued to stir the hearts and lives of men at Palm Valley Church. Our monthly Men’s Breakfast continued over all three campuses with an average attendance of 260. It was also exciting to see men from all different professions and walks of life share their personal stories about their lives and the work that God is doing in and through them.
Our Men’s Connect Groups continue to grow as we have added 12 new groups this past year, for a total of 35 groups. In these groups, men are able to find genuine fellowship and a safe place to talk about life challenges and how to use God’s Word to overcome.
This past October, we had our annual Ignite Men’s Conference. Over 800 men gathered for a two-day conference to worship and grow in their relationship with God. Over 20 men gave their lives to Christ and for the first time, many others recommitted to live as Christ has called them to live.
We also took our first “men’s mission trip” to Costa Rica in 2019 with 22 men. We went and served the underprivileged and marginalized people of this country. Out of this trip some of our men have started a ministry called “Calles” that provides food, clothing, and the love of Jesus to the underprivileged of the Rio Grande Valley. God was active and moving in 2019 and we are believing that 2020 will be even greater!
