We are changing the title from Men’s Ministry to what we are now calling Ministry to Men. This may seem like just semantics, but Ministry to Men takes place every day in our lives and in every situation. And Ministry to Men takes place all throughout the life of the church. Ministry to Men occurs whenever one man takes the time to invest into another man. The goal of Ministry to Men is to develop a lifestyle of caring, discipling, and leading others as Jesus did.
Each thing that is done involving Ministry to Men will have a strategic next step and will be centered around our purpose statement and theme verse.
Ministry to Men Purpose Statement: we exist to instill spiritual confidence in men, who will reach and lead the next generation for Christ.
Ministry to Men Theme Verse: You then, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. 2 And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable men who will also be qualified to teach others. 3 Join with me in suffering, like a good soldier of Christ Jesus (2 Timothy 2:1-2).
There are four generations of discipleship referenced in this scripture and it goes back to investment. Paul is investing in Timothy, Timothy is investing in Reliable Men, and Reliable Men will invest in others, so one another can be strengthened in the grace of God so we will have confidence to reach and lead the next generation for Christ.
