Men’s Ministry

First Baptist Church Inverness FLAs Third Option Men (TOM), we have chosen to live for God. Our mission is clear: “Go, and make disciples of all nations…” (Matthew 28:19) How do we accomplish this? One man at a time. By meeting regularly in small groups, much like the example Jesus set for us with His ragtag posse of twelve, we cultivate an atmosphere of transparency and grace.

TOM is “committed to building godly men to serve Christ in their home, church, career and community. To provide men with resources to develop godly character, and equip them to influence their world for Christ. Becoming a Christian is not a destination; it is the beginning of a life-long journey. ” This mission statement, is pursued through a variety of initiatives, events and activities. TOM places great emphasis on developing relationships in and among the men of FBC for furthering encouragement and support of men in their walk with Christ.


We are committed. We are motivated. We have chosen The Third Option. We are Third Option Men. We are TOM.

“A man cannot be passive about what Scripture tells him to do for his family and expect to be found faithful to God in the end. He must see with spiritual eyes and realize that future generations are directly impacted by his daily decisions.”

TOM believes all men are given three choices:

  1. Live for self
  2. Live for worldly gain
  3. Live for God

TOM exists to challenge men to consistently choose the third option. Our purpose is simple, encourage men to be men. Be men as husbands. Be men as fathers. Be men as leaders. By rescuing a lost generation of men and rescuing the collapsing American family.

The men meet on Tuesdays at 9:00am for Breakfast at Joe’s Restaurant (get directions/navigate).
