Ministries By Life Stages

Adult Men - Men of Courage

The Men of Courage draw our identity from the following verses:

  • Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. Do everything in love. I Cor 16:13-14
  • He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God. Micah 6:8

Who We Are

We are men, because of the mercy and grace that has been so freely given to each one of us by almighty God through Jesus Christ, that resolve in our hearts to be men of courage in our integrity, in our respect for our fellow man, and in taking a stand for our Lord Jesus Christ. Our resolve is characterized by knowing there will be some challenges along the way but we will continue to persevere toward the mark of becoming more like Jesus Christ every day.

The Climb

The Men of Courage Ministry can be viewed as a climb with our fellow brothers.  The climb begins at the base camp of group studies, gatherings/small groups, retreats/conferences, and service opportunities offered to men.  During the climb we will experience fellowship, accountability, spiritual self-discipline, and spiritual growth with one another. Our desire is to reach the summit of the life God has given us, which is characterized by daily walking humbly with our God.  This is what fuels our resolve to be men of courage.
