The OBCF Men’s Ministry vision is to train and equip men:
To establish an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ, through prayer, worship, and the building of strong faith through the power of the Holy Spirit by reading and study of God’s Word daily.
To build strong Godly Character & Integrity through small groups where by men meet on a regular basis for bible study, prayer, discussion, accountability, and restoration. To help men assume their spiritual role of leadership beginning at home, then the church, and then into the workplace. We accomplish this by being true obedient servants of Jesus Christ, sharing our faith throughout the world and bringing unity to the body of Jesus Christ.
Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be men of courage; be strong. Do everything in Love. 1Cor 16:13-1

Men’s Accountability Groups
The morning group meets the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month from 6:30 am – 8:00 am at The Hamburger Factory located at 14122 Midland Rd Poway, CA 92064. The next morning group meets Dec 23, 2014 at 6:30 am.
The evening group meets the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm at the Church Office located at 12540 Oaks North #A6, San Diego 92128. The next evening group meeting is Jan 6, 2015 at 6:00 pm; study in the Book of Acts.
At Olive Branch, we believe that Accountability Group is critical to man’s walk with Christ. Accountability is simply being responsible for one’s actions. As humans, we find support, comfort, and motivation from others who are struggling with similar life circumstances. Joining an accountability group can be the beginning of being more Christ like. “Bear one another burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.” Galatians 6:1-2
Men’s Bimonthly Breakfast
Men’s fellowship starts at the Men’s Bimonthly Breakfast, which is held at Maderas Golf Course Facility at 7:30 am in Poway, off Old Coach Road, on the 1st Saturday of every other month. Please advise email@example.com if you did not sign up, but don’t let that stop you from coming and invite a friend!
This breakfast gives men an opportunity to come together to fellowship, pray and hear God’s Word. We have one of our Pastors, Leaders or an Invited Speaker share on a “relevant” series or topic. The men break-up into Huddle Groups to discuss the message for that day. Also, each month one of the Olive Branch men will share his personal testimony. This is an exciting time to rejoice with other men on how they were saved and let Christ into their lives. We strongly encourage you to bring a friend or neighbor.
The next Men’s Breakfast is Feb 7, 2015.
