Men at Willow Creek

At Willow Creek, we equip men to discover who they are, to focus on God’s role in their lives, and to build community with one another.

Select a Willow Creek Location

Through small groups, Basecamp gatherings, and conferences, men at Willow walk alongside each other as they grow in their spiritual and relational journeys. Sign up for one of our upcoming events:


BASECAMP is the easiest way to get connected with other men. We meet monthly and it is a place where Willow men can gather to be strengthened, encouraged, and equipped for the adventures that lie ahead. Learn needed skills from God’s Word so we can find healing and help bring healing to a hurting world.

We will tackle topics relevant to various ages and stages of life—and hear personal stories of God at work—meeting around tables to dig deeper, ask questions, and make the learning more applicable. Register for the upcoming gathering here.

Unity Conference Retreat, August 27-29

Join with men from Willow and other Chicago area churches for a weekend away at Lake Geneva. The weekend is designed around developing relationships with a multiethnic group of Christian men where we can learn and grow together as followers of Jesus Christ. It will be a dynamic weekend filled with worship, learning, friendships, and fun. We are looking for men who desire to form friendships that will continue and help bring about reconciliation in the church.

Find more information and register for the retreat here 

Continued Connection 

Join a group of men from Willow and other Chicago churches to exercise unity in between our Unity zoom conferences. The most important way we can do this is by staying connected with other men—especially in multi-racial groups. We will also provide resources to help us gain understanding and empathy for one another. Please register to stay connected so that we can build unity in the church!

The best way we know to develop men to be authentic followers of Jesus Christ is through small groups. Men’s small groups involve three important and necessary components: biblical truth, deepening friendships, and outward impact. Sign up for a group here.



Perhaps you’re not sure what the best next step is. Or maybe you’d simply like to get in contact with someone from our men’s leadership for a phone call or a time of mentoring. Whether you are just starting to look into the claims of Jesus, are a new believer, or are a seasoned Christian looking for your next step; we’d be honored to meet you. Simply let us know!
