- Gather men who seek to break down barriers and honor and worship Jesus together. We want to honor God and allow his presence and love to change us into better disciples.
- Strengthen one another as believers in Christ. And spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We want to unify the men from our community for Christ.
What's said in this group stays in this group. We have to learn to trust each other. If you can't keep your mouth shut this is not the place for you. (1 Peter 5:8) Everybody struggles with something. This must be a safe place.
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 have his quiet time with the lord everyday. (1 Peter 2:1-3; Psalm 1:1-3)
God's man receives regular/weekly biblical instruction (1 Thessalonians 2:12-13). This can be achieved through a weekly small-group Bible study or large-group study with small-group discussion.
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's ministry for the purpose of consistency and obedience to God's Word (James 1:22-25; Ezekiel 33:30-32).
God's man makes it a priority to connect with other men for the purpose of community, accountability, confession, and prayer (1 John 1:9, James 5:16, Galatians 6:1-3, Hebrews 10:24-25).
God's man learns to address major life temptations and/or crises according to his need and life-stage. Support and encouragement from the ministry leader and small group is essential (Ecclesiastes 4:9-12).
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).
God's man invests time and resources into the lives of other men. By way of one-on-one connection through shared activities, spiritual mentoring, and modeling (2 Tim. 2:22; Proverbs 27:17; Mark 3:13-14).
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).
