The Men of Knox in Service to Others:
  • ManKIND Men's Ministry has assisted more than 100 people by providing (and praying over) beds and household necessities, as well as helping families move as they transition from homeless shelters to permanent housing.
  • Knox men regularly conduct work days that include building storage, painting, maintenance, and facility updates.  We have assisted the Hesed House and the Transitional Living Center (TLC) in Aurora and the Midwest Shelter for Homeless Veterans, located in Wheaton.
  • Knox has mentorship opportunities including education and skills training.
  • Daybreakers - Thirty or so men meet bright and early each Thursday morning at 6 am to study God’s word and to discuss and debate highly relevant topics from a man’s perspective.
  • There are dozens of ways for men of all ages to get connected and involved with ManKIND men’s ministry at Knox.  Programs, service, educational and fellowship opportunities are coming throughout 2019, so now is the perfect time to plug in and be fulfilled!

ManKind golf outing September 22 at Arrowhead Golf Club

Grab your clubs and join your ManKind Men’s Ministry buddies for an afternoon of golf, fellowship and food at Arrowhead Golf Club in Wheaton on Sunday, September 22, beginning at 1 p.m.

Put together your foursome with friends, family or kiddos and register online at by Friday, September 13.  Tee times will be assigned once registration closes.  Cost is $61 per person for 18 holes of golf, cart included, and will be paid day of, at Arrowhead.  As an added incentive, our beloved Chicago Bears are a Monday night match-up, so you won’t have to miss cheering them on!

Each foursome may play in a format most comfortable to them, including best ball or individual play.  You will enjoy fun contests such as longest drive and closest to the pin.  And, follow-up your round with a 19th hole gathering in the clubhouse, where you can continue fellowship, grab a bite and a drink, contest winners will be announced, and where you can catch a football game or two. 

A special thank you to Knox member and Arrowhead director of golf, Bruce Stoller, for coordinating the event for ManKind Men’s Ministry.

Bed Brigade Raises $12,000 -  thousands more in bedding!

ManKIND Men's Ministry asked, and you delivered! ManKIND’s inaugural Bed Brigade raised more than $12,000 in cash donations! We also received thousands of dollars’ worth of bedding. Your gifts will provide the veterans in our local community the dignity and blessing of a good night’s rest.

Over the past several years, the men of Knox have served dozens of veterans by acting as the hands and feet of Christ. We have purchased, delivered and prayed over 100+ beds throughout the greater Chicagoland area. This ministry is only made possible because of your support.

ManKIND is honored to partner with Midwest Shelter for Homeless Veterans, Inc. (MSHV) on this ministry and we are blessed to have so many who so generously answered our call for support.

Thank you for sharing our vision to serve the men and women who first serve us.
