MISSION: A Gospel Centered Ministry raising men under an honor code to accomplish the ministry plan that follows:
Grows In Love & Knowledge – The man of God commits daily to learn to follow Jesus by understanding and embodying the story of redemption found in God’s Word. The man of God is diligent to integrate each area of his life to effectively advance the mission of God in this world. He learns from other gifted teachers in the church and initiates his own plan for personal growth and maturity. He is accountable to the Lord as stewards of God’s gifts. He connects with other men frequently for the purpose of accountability, confession, and prayer. [James 1:22-25] [Galatians 6:1-2]
Leads His family – The man of God accepts his God-given responsibility to lead and manage his family. Each man will learn how to lovingly lead his family God’s way. Each husband will devote himself to loving and nurturing his wife. Each father will devote himself to train and counsel his children to follow Jesus. Each man will work hard to provide financially for his family, to invest time with his family, and to maintain a healthy and balanced life.
Leads in His Church – The man of God accepts his God-given responsibility to connect and belong to his church. Each man will find his place of leadership or service in the community of faith. Each husband and father will lead his family to worship and serve in the fellowship. Each man will lead his family to give generously to the ministry of their local church.
Leads in His Community – The man of God accepts his God-given responsibility to be a leader in his community. Each man will devote himself to his vocation as serving the Lord Christ. Each man will respect the environment God created and steward God’s earth with integrity. Each man will exercise his civic duties under the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Each man will pursue friendships and activities with a balance that honors Jesus Christ. The man of God will actively share his faith and testimony, at all times and in all places, to other men in order to lead them to be followers of Jesus Christ. [ Matt 28:18-20]
