Men of Grace

We recognize that, especially when it comes to deeper aspects of their lives, men tend to live

in isolation. This is not God’s plan for Christian men, who need to connect more fully both with

Jesus and with each other. They will then be more effective in worship, in serving the Lord, in

discipleship, and in sharing the gospel.

“….so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the

knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the

fullness of Christ.” .Eph 4:12-13

 

Objectives

  • To encourage and equip men to live with Jesus as their model.

  • To encourage and develop the knowledge of God and His word in ways that foster

       Christian discipleship, especially among men

  • To encourage and equip men to fulfil their roles as men in relationship with others

  • To encourage and equip men to share their faith and the gospel with

      those who do not know Christ

 

Some of these objectives will be met within Discipleship Groups and

whole church meetings.  The men’s ministry will not duplicate these,

but adds to them a focus where needed on the specific needs and

challenges faced by men.

 

Achieving the objectives

“Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.” Proverbs 27:17

We want to continue to build up the men of the church as brothers in

Christ, growing together, supporting each other, challenging each other.

A range of activities are organised to achieve this. These include:

  • Meals together

  • Quiz/competition evenings – with food

  • Pub based walks

  • Meetings with a teaching focus, sometimes with guest speaker(s)

  • Short courses with an explicit focus on men’s situations

            – e.g.” Life on the Frontline” (LICC), “The Grace Course”

                      (Freedom in Christ Ministries)

  • Awayday/weekend – with a mix of teaching and opportunities for

      informal fellowship

  • Establishing prayer partnerships

  • Mentoring of younger/newer Christian men
