Jack’s Garage Fellowship

VARIOUS SATURDAY MORNINGS

Many Bridge Men have come alive in their faith in the garage of Jack Davis, who humbly reminds everyone that this ministry is not “Jack’s Garage,” as the garage truly belongs to the Lord and Jack is “just trying to be a faithful steward.”

At this time, The Garage Fellowship has reached maximum capacity and, while they never want to turn away a coffee-drinking, bearded burly brother from their fellowship, Jack and company are all out of space (for now)!

Keep your eyes and ears out in the future for an opportunity to connect in this epic ministry of men after God’s own heart!
