Your Four

One of the key distinctives of Northwoods is our mission of "Inviting broken-world people to experience complete freedom in Christ Jesus." We want you to be praying about Your Four—four people in your life whom you can be praying for and inviting to Northwoods for a weekend service, class, group, or other ministry. Your Four are out there! Ask God to show you who they are!

Be sure to pick up a Your Four sticker from an Info Center and keep track of Your Four in the Northwoods mobile app.

Men's Groups

History is filled with faithful men of God who started a movement in their generation.  There are also countless men who have fallen victim to fear and the demands of life. Often, it may feel like you don’t have what it takes to lead at the level you desire at work or in your family. But you do. God put it in you. He also knows that you can’t go it alone. Gather together with other like-minded men and receive encouragement on your journey with Jesus.
