The objective of Men’s Ministries is to disciple and equip the men of Tabernacle of Grace Church in their roles as men of God, whether married, single, older, or younger. It seeks to provide an outlet for modeling the life of Christ to men. We do this through teaching, fellowship, and service. We want to provide opportunities for fostering spiritual friendships and developing discipleship relationships, so that men can grow in Christ, specifically in their roles as men.
The rationale for this is simple. Men have been given the key role in the Body of Christ. Ranging from clergy to any believing man in the pew, each has the responsibility to walk with Christ in obedience and grow in his image.
Men, married or single, often live isolated from the active fellowship of other Christian men. Proverbs 27:17 says, “Iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.” The principle given here is that men need the encouragement, teaching, fellowship, and modeling of the Christian life from other men.
