Welcome Kingdom Men

Welcome to ECPCMen.Org. This site is here to help coordinate and facilitate the Men of East Cobb Presbyterian Church, and the surrounding community, to become more connected with each other. As a leadership team we believe that men grow more deeply in their faith when they are in fellowship with other men of faith. Though this is a need of all men, it can be a struggle to get connected with other men of shared interests and ideas. We, as a leadership team, hope to assist in that process. How do we plan on doing this?

The initial focus of the leadership team is to plan fun, time sensitive, events for the men of the church and, hopefully, the friends they invite. We understand the inherent busyness of men. We want the focus of our men to be first and foremost to their families and their other duties within the church. Our aim is not to burden the men with lots of time consuming events. These events might include a men’s BBQ, bowling, going to a sporting event, shared interests activities like shooting or golf, and of course we will continue to host our men’s breakfast. In the future we may also have multi-day events like a Men’s retreat or a weekend seminar. Through these activities our goal is to connect men of similar interests. We want the men of the church to know if they want to go fishing, play a round of golf, or talk to someone about a struggle or a success, they have someone they can call.

So who is on the leadership team I keep referring to? The men’s leadership team consists of five men.

  • Pastor Paul Owens (paul@ecpca.org)
  • Larry Aman (larry_aman@hotmail.com)
  • Jonathan Jackson (jonathan@j2projectman.com)
  • Mark Jacobson (nildebet@hotmail.com)
  • Stephen Helwig (steve.helwig@outlook.com)

We are here to serve you, but would also love to add a few more team members. Please let us know if you are interested in helping out. If you have any questions, ideas, requests, or comments, feel free to contact us. Look out in the coming weeks for information about our first event!!!

Lastly, you will see us refer to the men of ECPC as Kingdom Men. This name was chosen some time ago and we discussed choosing a different one, but in reality, Kingdom Man sums up the walk of the Christian Man maybe better than any other moniker. Dr. Tony Evans in his book “Kingdom Man” describes him this way.

When a kingdom man steps out his door each day, heaven, earth, and hell take notice. When he protects or “covers” the woman under his care, she can do little to resist him. His children look to him with confidence. Other men look to him as someone to emulate. His church calls on him for strength and leadership. He is a preserver of culture and a champion of society to keep out evil and usher in good. A kingdom man understands that God never said a godly life would be easy, He just said it would be worth it.

The journey of a Kingdom Man is not an easy one, but we believe it is one that is worth it, and one that is made easier by having Godly men in each others lives. I’ll close with the following verse form 1 Corinthians 16 13-14.

13 Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong.14 Do everything in love.

In Christ,
