MEN OF HOPE Men’s Ministry is in active pursuit of men in order to connect them to God, His Word, and other men for the purpose of winning, growing, and training God’s man in Christ.
We know one thing for sure — God will use the heart and life of anyone who chooses to make himself available to Jesus Christ. The Bible says, “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.” This is the great commission spoken by Jesus Himself. In other words, Jesus Christ is commissioning His followers to go into the entire world and reproduce believers. This is a big calling.
Men of Hope enables a man to better understand his calling in life and how to achieve it? Can a men’s ministry challenge a man to grow deeper in intellect, emotion, and spirit? Can a men’s ministry teach men how to stay sexually pure? The answer to this question is a resounding yes with Men of Hope.
MEN OF HOPE – Non-negotiables
Here are eight biblically-balanced benchmarks that make up our healthy ministry to men.
- Filling – God’s man is a self-feeder. Consistently studying and applying God’s Word independent of the church or small group is essential. To do this, a man must be taught how to study the Bible. (1 Peter 2:1-3; Psalm 1:1-3).
- Training – God’s man receives regular/weekly biblical instruction (1 Thessalonians 2:13). This is achieved through a weekly Saturday small-group Bible study and a large-group Men’s Breakfast every second Saturday of the month.
- Practicing – God’s man learns how to apply God’s Word to all areas of life. It is essential to allowing room for accountability within the Men of Hope for the purpose of consistency and obedience to God’s Word (James 1:22-25; Ezekiel 33:30-32).
- Uniting – God’s man makes it a priority to connect with other men at least two times a month for the purpose of community, accountability, confession, and prayer (Galatians 6:1-3; James 5:16; Hebrews 10:23-24).
- Surviving – God’s man learns to address major life temptations and/or crises according to his need and life-stage. Support and encouragement from the Men of Hope leaders and small group is essential (Ecclesiastes 4:9-12).
- Reaching – God’s man gets involved in some form of men’s ministry based on his gifts and talents. God has called each of us to pour out to others what He has poured into us (1 Peter 4:10-11; Ephesians 4:11-13)
- Impacting – God’s man invests time and resources into the lives of other men. One-on-one connection through shared activities and spiritual mentoring.(2 Tim. 2:22; Proverbs 27:17; Mark 3:13-14).
- Sharing – God’s man learns to actively share his faith in order to lead others into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ (Acts 1:8; 1 Peter 3:15; Matthew 28:18-20).
