Real Life Men

Real Life Men exists to encourage, engage and equip men for vital, passionate, Christ-centered living. Real Life Men are committed to providing discipleship opportunities for men to become more Christ-like by experiencing God’s transforming power through Bible study, prayer, and personal interaction with other men.

We long to see more and more of our guys move from being men of the world to being men of the Word, in such a way that would have a spiritual impact in their families, communities, and beyond, as they take the Gospel into their world, making disciples, who also make disciples.

Men's Bible Study

And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” - Matthew 28:18-20

There's a disciple-maker inside every Christian.

When a baby is born, people immediately spring into action to clean, check, bathe, and warm the infant. All this is done in order to ensure that this new creation is well on his or her way to a life of growth, health, and maturity.

But when someone is born into Christ, we usually just congratulate them and send them into the world. As a result, churches are full of baby Christians who never fully developed spiritually, even if they were born decades earlier.

Join the Real Life Men's Bible Study as we carry out the great commission, building disciples. We will go through Disciple's Path: The Journey in small groups of between 4 and 6 men. Individual groups will decide a weekly meeting date/time and location deepening their spiritual walk and building relationships amongst the group. Every 6-8 weeks, we will come together as a large group for a time of fellowship or service.

Contact Adam Webster for more information. You may also read more about Disciple's Path: The Journey or watch the video below.

Real Life Women

"Those who look to Him are Radiant and their faces shall never be ashamed." - Psalm 34:5

The vision and hope for RL Women's Ministry is for women to actively pursue and know God while building deep bonds of friendship within and outside of our community.


RL Ladies! Join us Saturday, October 13th at 7pm, for a night of worship, outreach, and teaching as we learn what it means to be RADIANT in Jesus. Invite a friend or two and meet us at Atlantic Shores Life Center, 1861 Kempsville Rd., Virginia Beach. Cost is $5 per person. No childcare available for this event. Register online or via RL App.

Voice of God

RL Women's Fall Bible Study will be meeting on Monday evenings, 6:30-8pm, beginning September 24 for seven weeks, at Resurrection Lutheran Church, 916 Centerville Tpk. N. Chesapeake. Join us as we study through the newly revised "Discerning the Voice of God" study by Priscilla Shirer. In these 7 sessions we will "discover the root to clear and daily communication with God - humble obedience" and we will "learn how surrender unlocks His many blessings intended for us, centers us in His will, and helps us discern His voice in everyday life." Invite a friend! The study book costs $13.

The Mom's Group will also be participating with the study beginning Friday, September 21 at 10:30am. Childcare is available for both Monday nights and Friday mornings.
