1K22 is a ministry to the men at Grace Bible Church. This group exists to raise up godly men to lead both in their homes as well as in the church.

The name 1K22 comes from 1 Kings 2:2 where King David tells his son Solomon, “So be strong, act like a man.” He then goes on to describe what acting like a man entails. He exhorts him to “observe what the LORD your God requires: Walk in obedience to him, and keep his decrees and commands.”

We believe this message is critical in a day when most misunderstand “manliness” to mean knowing how to change a tire, growing beards, and not wearing your emotions on your sleeve. The truth is, men are really good at a lot of these “manly” things, but they neglect their true calling to biblical manliness. God calls all men to walk faithfully with him. This is what it means to “act like a man.”
