NCS is a network of men joined by a common desire for a deep and abiding friendship with Jesus, and lasting and transparent friendships with each other.
A lot of people look happy, successful, and fulfilled but pull back the curtain and things aren’t always as they appear. In reality, “Most men lead lives of quiet desperation”… careers and family obligations result in many men leading an isolated life with limited and superficial friendships. The pressures and temptations for men are great.
Each NCS chapter strives to create an atmosphere where guys can form deep friendships, discuss challenges, and encourage each other to be the men that God has designed us to be. As one of our speakers said, “if guys spent more time in friendship with each other and could discuss their temptations, they would need to spend less time asking for the forgiveness of their sins.”
About NCS Princeton
NCS Princeton was formed in 2011 and meets every other week during the fall, winter and spring. Our weekly meetings usually features a speaker or one of “Brudders” telling their story–our best speakers are guys who share their faith journey, and the teachable events in their lives. We ask guys to be transparent and vulnerable, to demonstrate to all of the men that they are not alone in living a life that is far from perfect.
We believe in creating an environment where all men are welcome, no matter what they do for a living, or what mistakes they have made in their lives. We believe that grace is critical to our community. In addition, we want to encourage men to be better husbands, sons, fathers, friends, co-workers and servants, and we help men to set goals to achieve this objective.
All of our speakers are followers of Jesus, but attendees need not have any specific faith view. We regularly refer to scripture, and we encourage men to learn more about Jesus’ life and teachings. Men are attracted to transformational stories, and we have been blessed with many wonderful speakers who have inspired and encouraged us.
We invite you to come check us out. You will find a community of men who are committed to each other, who laugh together (we don’t take ourselves too seriously) and walk with each other through life’s challenges.
