The Men’s Forum is our quarterly speaker series of relevant and engaging lectures on topics relating to faith, culture, family, and work. At each meeting, men from TCC as well as Christian and Non-Christian men from the community are invited to gather for a meal, hear a thought provoking lecture, and engage in discussion and debate. While we teach and share a Christian world-view at TCC, and all speakers will be presenting from the Christian perspective, we encourage and invite those from other faith traditions or those with no religious affiliation at all to attend and share their thoughts and perspectives.
Upcoming Men’s Forum

Food and Fellowship for Men of All Ages.
Please join us for an end of Summer BBQ. Brats and marinated chicken sandwiches on the grill, with a fresh harvest of tomatoes and corn.
Primarily it will be a fellowship time. A time to check in and see how we are doing and hang out together. We will also share with the men a season schedule for Men’s Ministries.
We are following the theme that we kicked off on May 1st with Dr. Jim Singleton. You may recall that his theme was: “Becoming a better leader in today’s post Christian World: At work, in the church; and in the family.” Jim did a great job of setting the stage for the next few talks. Our current thinking is that we want to invest in a few sessions of being a Christian Leader at Work; in business or in academia or medicine.
Incarnate Leadership, Lessons from our Lord
Becoming a better leader in today’s complex “post-Christian” world; at work, in the church, and in the family.

Is Post-modern capitalism redeemable and if so, how may the church influence its redemption?
