Men’s Ministry is committed to equipping the men of Foothills to grow in their walk with the Lord, in their marriages and family, in relationship with other men and in serving the Body of Christ. There are several ministry opportunities available to men listed below. If you would like to participate, serve or have questions about Men’s Ministries contact Pastor Don Bastrom at (619) 442-7728.

We value fellowship and fun and invite you to join us at any of the men’s ministries listed below.

CIA - Christians in Accountability

CIA – Christians in Accountability –  is a group of men who desire to build Christian relationships, spend time with each other and learn how to take back from Satan the things he took (or we gave him) over the years.

This is not a Bible study or long term spiritual intensive care group.  Men of the C.I.A. challenge each other to do more for Christ in deed, thought and spirit.  If a man falls we rally around him in prayer to help him get back in the fight.  We are “Gibbors” – the Hebrew word for ”men of might” or “hero”.

We meet the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month at 6:30pm in Room A6.

Men’s Leadership Mentoring

Did your father love you, encourage you, respect you and set aside time for you – just you? Many of us would give a negative answer to that question. But that is what Leadership Mentors do. These are men who have been trained to mentor and they continue to be mentored themselves. They will help share the joys and sadness of life with you, help build you up in the Spirit and encourage your growth toward the image of Jesus.

Oaks is a men’s discipleship ministry that is designed to help godly men grow in their calling to lead in their families, their church, and in our culture.

Oaks consists of four eight-week sessions throughout the year and is taught by the staff pastors of Foothills Church.  Through solid biblical teaching on manhood, and training on leadership, accountability, discipline, prayer, and study, we trust that God will use Oaks to challenge and grow men to become who God has made them to be, Oaks of Righteousness (Isaiah 61:3-4).

Oaks will begin soon. Please check back for more details

Tuesday nights, 7:00-8:30 in the Multi-purpose room.

Band of Brothers


We believe every Christian man has a desire to be in a group of men that share their values, goals and vision for what a man who has given his heart to Christ can and should be. Guys want and need relationships with other men, and we believe that a man cannot fully become the man God created him to be in a vacuum. The Scriptures teach us that there are no Lone Rangers in the body of Christ. We were created for fellowship and relationship, and we are the most healthy and balanced when we are around healthy, balanced men who are closely following Jesus Christ.

The Band of Brothers is for all the men of Foothills to come together and discuss what it means to be a Man of God. Coffee and donuts provided. Start with worship, followed by a short message, then fellowship with guys at your table.

When 1st & 3rd Saturday
Time 7:00 – 8:30 AM
Where Room A-1

My Utmost for His Highest - A Fireside Chat

A Fireside Chat – My Utmost for His Highestphoto

Welcome to our group. We are a group of men that meet and chat around an open fire. Discussions are based around Oswald Chambers daily devotional “My utmost for His Highest”. Each week guys share how the Truth of God’s Word, through these devotions, has touched their lives. The goal is to share real life application of scripture, create openess, encouragement and support among the group. Grab a spot because space is limited to ensure the casual, yet intimate atmosphere.

Pure Desire - For Men Only

“There is a battle going on.  Millions of victims are trapped in the struggle for sexual addiction with no apparent way out.  Pure Desire is the answer to the desperate cry for help from men who have tried to build sexual holiness into their lives and failed…and failed…and failed.” (From the back cover of Pure Desire by Ted Roberts.)

This is a support group for men who are pursuing God’s victory in their battle for sexual integrity.  Participation in the group is confidential and requires an orientation process that must be completed prior to joining the group.  Contact Don Bastrom to begin the orientation process.

Groups meet Tuesday and Thursday nights 7:00pm to 9:00pm at Foothills Church for those who have completed the orientation process and regularly attend services at Foothills Church.
