2019 Workshop

Men's Ministry: Strengthening the Men You Work With: Understanding Their Needs and Influencing Their World


There are several unique challenges that each man must overcome in order to become who God created him to be. A natural defensiveness works against his efforts to develop his full potential, establish supportive relationships, live a satisfying life and achieve his dreams. To live a life of meaning and productive contribution, a man must fight against, adapt to and learn from various environmental challenges. He must develop self-awareness regarding what is occurring within him, a willingness to risk by initiating action to make things better and a responsibility for his choices. Through exhibiting the characteristics of the Ultimate Man, Jesus Christ, men are strengthened in their role as husband, father, friend, coworker and missionary.
