"Fight Club" (Men's Discipleship)
Under the leadership of Pastor Tom Margherita, and by God's grace, this ministry is showing men how to be real, God-fearing and Chirst-like men. It is our sincerest prayer that Men begin to take a stand and start being men of integrity and character, the kind of men that this world so desperately is in need of. The term "Fight Club" was adopted based on Nehemiah 4:14 which says, "After I looked things over, I stood up and said to the nobles, the officials and the rest of the people, “Don’t be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome, and fight for your families, your sons and your daughters, your wives and your homes.”
This is an awesome reminder that we must fight for our families because if we don't the enemy will. We know that our fight is not against flesh and blood but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. (Ephesians 6:12).
So men, if you are man enough and ready to take back ground for your families and for His Kingdom, make it a point to come out to our next montly "Fight Club" meeting.
We meet every second Friday of the month. Check out our Calandar & Events for exact details.
Pastor Tom Margherita
Men's & Marriage Pastor
Tom was brought up in a Catholic home in the Bronx, New York. In 1985 he was born again, and for the next 5 years began his journey growing in Christ. In 1992 he had an encounter with the Holy Spirit which changed his life. He became very involved in the Men’s Ministry at his church and started a men’s group under Promise Keepers. He came to know Pastor Gus in 2007 while volunteering with the Phoenix Rescue Mission. Seeing Pastor Gus’ heart for the lost, Tom provided food and clothing and helped organize evangelistic outreaches for Fire & Water.
Today, Pastor Tom is the Director of Fire & Water’s Men’s Ministry – Fight Club. He has a heart to meet the needs of the men on a personal and spiritual level. He provides discipleship, accountability and fellowship so they can grow in their relationship with God, with other men and with their families.
Pastor Tom is also the Co-Pastor of the Marriage Ministry at Fire & Water, along with his wife Pastor Sheryl.
