The purpose of EMERGE Men’s Ministry is to empower men who are called and destined for greatness. Man was created from the dust of the earth to walk with God and fulfill His purposes. God breathed into man the breath of life and man became a living being! Ever since then, the enemy of our souls has been trying to get man to once again become dust and embrace the dirt of this world.
But in this hour, God is causing His men to EMERGE, and receive His breath of life and become living instruments of His grace and power in the earth!


Every year in March we have our Emerge Men’s Conference. This conference is designed to unify the men of C3 San Diego and empower them to not shrink back but rather step up as leaders, husbands, fathers and sons.

The leadership and discipline attained from VMI set him up for success as he embarked on a 20-year adventure as a Marine Corps Officer.
