The men’s ministry department fills an important role in the church, in that the department works to encourage, lead, and nurture men who serve as brothers, husbands, fathers, and ministry leaders. The department is responsible for organizing, planning, and directing programs that will meet the unique spiritual and emotional needs of the men of the church. The men of your church need to come away from the men’s ministry gatherings better equipped to serve the church, their families, and each other. “For you have been called to live in freedom–not freedom to satisfy your sinful nature, but freedom to serve one another in love” (Gal. 5:13, New Living Translation).
The ministry to which a person is called when he joins men’s ministry can be described in the following ways: (1) develop programs and activities that will meet the various contemporary needs of a diverse male constituency; (2) encourage and facilitate meaningful spiritual, mental, and emotional growth among the men of the church; (3) provide news of interest to men; and (4) mentor someone else in this ministry.
