The Men’s Ministry of Edmond's First is a very active group of guys! We have many opportunities for men to gather for prayer, Bible study, and fellowship. Men, as spiritual leaders of our families, we should be actively engaged in being discipled, discipling others, and sharing the love of Jesus with the world. Below are some great opportunities for men to be involved:

About Jason Hope
Chief Warrant Officer 3 (Ret) Jason A Hope, an esteemed United States Army Special Forces veteran and recipient of the Silver Star Medal for valor. Jason’s early entry into the Green Berets allowed him to serve an unusually long tenure of 22 out of his 24 years in the Special Forces, spending 18 years as an operator and A-team member. During his exceptional military career, he spent approximately 14 and a half years in combat or hostile fire zones, profoundly impacting his spiritual journey. Hope's experiences in the Special Forces led him to recognize the existence of God, but he felt spiritually lost despite a previous profession of faith. However, a pivotal moment arrived when he realized that being a soldier for Christ was his true calling. Despite the significant events that marked his military journey, he admits that it took him around 12 years to find his way back to God after returning home.

"I spent about 12 years of my military career wandering,” Hope recalled, “then, the Lord brought me back to Oklahoma and reunited me with my high school sweetheart. It was during this time that she asked me a thought-provoking question. She said, 'Hey, I know you believe in God and everything, but have you ever truly surrendered yourself?' Being prideful, I quickly responded, 'I told you I believed in Jesus. Of course, I have.' But her words lingered in my mind because, deep down, as a soldier, I knew what surrender meant, and I knew I had not really surrendered to Jesus."

In a transformative moment behind his house, Hope decided to let go and surrender himself completely to God. He experienced a profound awakening almost four years ago as God revealed His plan and purpose for his life - to serve Christ and share the gospel. Through his ministry, he aims to point to the pathway of hope and perseverance, reminding others that the answer lies in fully surrendering themselves to God.

"In the Army, we have a manual for everything,” Hope explained, “following the manual is crucial for success and even survival in the military. Similarly, the Bible serves as a manual for life, and it's not as complicated as it seems. It provides guidance and wisdom for every aspect of our existence. If we follow it faithfully, it can save us from the perils and challenges we face."

Hope aims to spread the Gospel through Pathway for Hope, encouraging individuals to seek salvation in Jesus and align themselves with His teachings. He emphasizes the role of men as spiritual leaders within their households, urging them to understand their purpose as designed by God.


Tuesdays | 6:00 AM - 7:00 AM | Fellowship Hall
Meet with men from Edmond's First and the community each Tuesday morning for coffee and donuts. During the prayer meeting we will spend time in prayer and have a brief Bible lesson. Our goals as we meet are to encourage and disciple men to be followers of Christ, lift up those around us in need of prayer, and to pray for revival. Enter on the east side of campus under the covered entry.

On Tuesdays we are currently studying "The Miracles of Jesus". We are opening up the miracles performed by Jesus, in chronological order. You won't want to miss this informative and Inspirational study!


Tuesday | 6:00 AM - 7:00 AM | Fellowship Hall
On the FIRST TUESDAY of each month, the men of Edmond's First have a BIG BREAKFAST with bacon, scrambled eggs, biscuits, gravy, milk, orange juice, and coffee for only $2.00 per person. After breakfast, we will hear an inspiring message. All men are invited to come and bring a friend!


Wednesdays | 6:00 PM - 7:15 PM | Room 109
We are studying "Conformed to His Image, Biblical and Practical Approaches to Spiritual Formation" by Kenneth Boa, revised edition. What does a relationship with God look like and how do we obtain it? It is vital for church leaders to grapple seriously with this question, for pat answers no longer suffice. Lives well-lived, not just words eloquently spoken, must become our response. The quality of our relationship with God is what will influence the health, potency, and witness of the church in an increasingly complex and hostile world.


Thursdays | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM | Light Tower
Every era of the church needs revival, certainly today as much as ever.  In the heart of every committed Christian there is a longing for revival. Brothers, if we want to do God’s Work, in God’s way, in God’s time, with God’s power, in order to have God’s blessings, we must first be men in prayer for Revival! Meet in the Light Tower. Enter from the 33rd Street (north) side at the "Office" doors.


Thursdays | 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM | Choir Room

We will resume meeting on Thursday, June 1, 2023.

Come to the Choir Room each Thursday and join us as we study and pray through the Psalms. This is such an interesting study as we get to know the psalmists and the songs they wrote.


Sundays | 9:00 AM - 9:30 AM | Room 110
Meet every Sunday for an open prayer time for men.
