About this ministry
⦁ Through the preaching and teaching of the undiluted word of God and prayer (Acts 6:4).
⦁ It is not a social gathering (of course, we will network with one another), it is not a club, but a gathering of believers, it is the church of the living God.
⦁ The focus of the Word will be on growth, going towards maturity in these five areas -
⦁ The Man as the husband (not a husband)
⦁ The Man as the father, while also submitting to The Father Himself (The Wonder Called Father – June 16, 2013 – If we can get a hold of the CD, please, listen to it)
⦁ The Man as the priest (while also submitting to The High Priest, Jesus Himself being the Head)
⦁ The Man as Enterprise owner / investor / manager (i.e. man’s profession or business). Excelling in business and / or his profession.
⦁ The Man as a positive public role model / influencer of the society / working together successfully with others.
⦁ The focus will be on the practicality of the Word of God, practical discussions with the Word of God as the basis, for daily and victorious Christian living.
⦁ We also need to make the meeting user friendly, value adding, timely and open to all so we can also attract other men that may not be in NCA presently.
⦁ Our Central theme in the Men’s group ties with the vision above and it is captured in this scripture:
⦁ Eph. 4:14-16 “That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; 15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in ALL THINGS, which is the head, even Christ: 16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love”.
⦁ It follows therefore, that everything we do in the Men of Valor group must revolve around the vision, mission and the central theme.
⦁ The Meeting is intended to be monthly.
⦁ It was suggested that it should be rotated from house-to-house – Acts 2:46b “…and breaking bread from house to house”.
