To Help Men Grow In Christ, So Others May Know Christ

Join us at 6:30 on the third Wednesday of every month for dinner, fellowship and an uplifting spiritual program

Our Mission

To support spiritual growth among men, helping men to mature as disciples as they encourage spiritual formation in others.

Our Goal

To be a creative, supportive fellowship of men who seek to know Jesus Christ, to grow spiritually and to seek daily his will. Our primary purpose is to declare the centrality of Christ in the lives of men and in all their relationships.

Our Objectives

  • To engage daily in Bible study and prayer.

  • To bear witness to Christ's way in daily work and in all personal contacts through words and actions.

  • To engage in evangelism by sharing the fullness of the gospel in its personal and social dimensions.

  • To engage in Christian service.

Developing Men As Spiritual Fathers

  • The role of a spiritual father is to raise up a son spiritually. A father will nurture and protect a son. The spiritual father will pour out knowledge, understanding, wisdom, counsel, and blessing to the son. A father's primary goal is to make the son successful in knowing the Lord, and fulfilling the call of God on the son's life. Spiritual father's enjoy spending time with their sons not out of obligation, but because they are truly family. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Why is Men’s Ministry Important?

  • Men lead others best by modeling Jesus Christ in thoughts, words and deeds.

  • Spiritual maturity is signified in spiritual reproduction, as the faith of mature disciples passes on in others.

  • Men growing in Christ become effective spiritual leaders in their homes and congregations, working as partners with their spouses and congregational leaders-both lay and clergy.

  • Spiritually growing men help congregations to become vital and alive.

  • Everything desired from and through men comes as a result of men growing spiritually and maturing as disciples: family blessings, stewardship, service, outreach, prayer, spiritual leadership, lifestyle evangelism, and faithful obedience. Men are foundational to the life and health of the church.

  • When a man lives daily in surrendered faith, God is honored and many lives are blessed. Transformed hearts are forged only within Christ-centered lives-nothing less is our acceptable offering; nothing less truly reveals Christ.
