2019 Workshop

Men's Ministry: Men’s Ministry: A Powerful Resource


Men are the rebar in the concrete that holds up the structure of an effective church ministry. Often misunderstood if not ignored, a male’s relationally challenging responses have caused many in the church to not develop the vital resource of a men’s ministry. Women and children have also been harmed as the representative of Jesus they were dreaming of is often a no-show. This seminar will look at several specific challenges to reaching out and developing men spiritually. We will look at some practical guidelines to magnify your effort with these significant participants in God’s Kingdom.
