2017 Men's Conf.jpg

Guest Speaker:  

Pastor Nate Holdridge is the pastor of Calvary Chapel of Monterey Bay.  He grew up in this amazing church, serving as it's lead pastor since 2008.  He is joined in this mission by his amazing bride, Christina, and his three daughters.  Pastor Nate has a message for those attending this year's Men's Conference:

"Men of Metro!  God is looking to build gospel men — men who live in response to and in the riches of the cross of Jesus Christ. Gospel men are a gift to the world, the church, and the family. They do not take — but give. They do not surrender — but fight. They do not lord over — but serve

Since God longs to BUILD MEN like this, He has sent His Holy Spirit. We cannot run our race without the Spirit, for He takes us to the finish line. In our sessions together we will note, from Romans 8, first, how the Spirit HELPS us run in the victory Christ won for us. Second, we will see how He --also ILLUMINATES to us our high position as children of God. Third, we will learn of the profound HOPE He gives to us as believers. Fourth, we will learn of the ultimate DESTINATION He works to bring us to. 

God’s men aren’t meant to live perpetually in a losing battle with the flesh. By the Spirit, we can OVERCOME, for He longs to CONFORM us to the image of Christ. 

I look forward to the blessing of being with you May 26-27. I believe we will find great encouragement in Christ and joy in fellowship."

Men's Bible Study


Join us this fall and spring for an in-depth study in the Book of Romans.  Many would agree with Philip Schaff, in his History the Christian Church, that Romans is their favorite portion of scripture, because "It is the most remarkable production of the most remarkable man.  It is his heart.  It contains his theology, theoretical and practical, for which he lived and died.  It gives the clearest and fullest exposition of the doctrines of sin and grace and the best possible solution of the universal dominion of sin and death in the universal redemption by the second Adam [Jesus]." 

Martin Luther said of this book: "This Epistle is really the chief part of the New Testament and the very purest Gospel, it is worthy not only that every Christian should know it word for word, by heart, but occupy himself with it everyday, as the daily bread of the soul.  It can never be read or pondered too much, and the more it is dealt with the more precious it becomes, and the better it tastes."  

Our prayer is that as we look into the beauty and grandeur of Romans, our lives will be transformed by the truths contained there in.  On September 29th we will begin a 23-week bible study of all 16 chapters of Romans.  We meet at 7:00 PM in the Metropolis Building for worship and a short teaching before we break into small groups for discussion and encouragement.  If you are hungry, come early, dinner is served promptly at 6:30 PM.   We hope to see you there.
