The Men’s Ministry at Community Church is focused on making disciples of Jesus Christ who are committed to the mission of making other disciples. Our goal is to implement the Discipleship Pathway specifically for men.
“Follow me and I will make you fishers of men.” Matthew 4:19
“As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.” Proverbs 27:17
Men's Ministry and the Discipleship Pathway
ENCOUNTER: Men lead their wife and family by participating in corporate worship. We do not plan to offer any special men’s activities on Sunday morning but we encourage men to attend a GPS Ministry event and learn how and where to use their spiritual gifts, talents and passions to serve the body of Christ.
CONNECT: We will hold four larger gatherings of men each year to provide men an opportunity to connect with other men. These CONNECT events are designed for men to have a lot of fun while forming smaller groups that Grow and Multiply.
GROW: Men are encouraged to be in a small group. That could be with their wife in a Community Group, or in one of the men’s groups. We currently have two men's groups and are planning to start a third:
- Joshua’s Men: meets every Saturday at the church office from 7-8:30am to study the Bible, pray, and fellowship with one another. Currently we are doing a Bible study of the book of Galatians. All men are welcome. Contact Bill Fredenburg, email@example.com 573.270.9454.
- Thursday Men’s Study: meets every Thursday at the church, Room 105 from 6-7am. We take turns providing some refreshments and coffee. We have been enjoying a number of video-based discussion series by Chip Ingram. Currently we are doing a study called “Balancing Life’s Demands: Biblical Priorities for a Busy Life”. Contact Bruce Caldwell, firstname.lastname@example.org 719.661.3721.
- Explore God: People who are less familiar with the Bible and its teachings have many questions about God as well as misconceptions about Christianity. One way to engage these seekers is through an ExploreGod group looking at Life’s Seven Big Questions. This group will read and discuss a number of books on classical apologetics to explore what Christians believe and why. Contact Larry Karasevich, email@example.com 832.319.9186.
MULTIPLY: We encourage men to join a DNA group with two or three other men. If you are already in a Community Group, ask some of the men in your group to meet together for discipleship, or attend DNA Group Leader Training to learn how to start a group of your own. If you are not ready to lead a group but would like to join one, we could connect you with someone who is available to lead a group. Contact Larry Karasevich, firstname.lastname@example.org 832.319.9186 for more information.
