As Iron Sharpens Iron, So a man sharpens the countenance of his friend. Proverbs 27:17
The contemporary view of men in current society exposes a dualistic culture of extremes where men can’t seem to decide between chauvinist expressions of male dominance or emasculated depictions of immaturity and weakness. The Men of LIFE Men’s Ministry calls men to take their rightful place as God ordained it when he created the man as His firstborn. Jesus Christ in exemplifying this role as the firstborn of God operated in full awareness and acceptance of his authority as the leader and head of the church. Jesus does not feel the need to flaunt or impose that authority, choosing instead to use his authority to inspire the church to love by being an example of love. He uses his authority to lift the church also known as his bride to his side, seats her with him in heaven at his right hand and grants her an equal share in his inheritance and authority.
The vision of the men’s ministry is to call out the oft-neglected role of men as leaders in society away from the insecurity and immaturity usually expressed by their destructive attempts to either forcefully impose authority on those they have been called to protect or neglect the responsibilities they have been divinely assigned, to the role of protection and love born out of a self-assurance in God and in themselves. Men as leaders are called to arise and take their place as the firstborn of God’s creation; to display the love of Christ to their wives, mothers, sisters, family and friends who in emulating the model displayed by men are inspired to love in return. Just as the firstborn son in ancient times received twice the inheritance as well as twice the responsibility, we hope to inspire men to earn the respect and honor that is God’s promise to them by fulfilling their purpose as breadwinners, protectors and defenders of the family structure, a structure which will become a secure foundation for generations to come.
The purpose of the men’s ministry is to reveal Jesus Christ to all men in order that God’s Kingdom will be manifested tangibly in their lives. The men’s ministry seeks to sharpen and strengthen men through God’s Word, fellowship, encouragement and support. The men’s ministry is a multifaceted, comprehensive ministry that will expand the Kingdom of God by encouraging and supporting men to walk in their calling and purpose. The men’s ministry will promote the relationship between God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. It is this vertical alignment that men have to constantly maintain in order to successfully address and navigate through the daily issues of life that they will face. Our foundational scripture can be found in Revelation 12:11:”And they overcame him by the Blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony”.
