Men's Ministry

Postby Full Quiver » December 21st, 2008, 5:23 pm

Let me preface this post by saying that of course myself and my team will follow the leading of the Lord as we direct the new Men's Ministry at Cedar Ridge.

The ministry is called ALTARED which is a play on the 2 words altar and altered thus implying changed at an altar or in prayer.

We are kicking this ministry off with a Spring retreat at Boxwell which is a 1500 acre boyscout campground. They have 70 buildings including a lodge, cabins, and kitchens.

My question is what would you guys look for in a men's ministry as far as monthly meetings. I don't want to Bible Study these guys to death but I don't want this to be a monthly get together to watch sports either. I need a balance of fun, worship, study, prayer, and fellowship.

Just looking for some insight from real folks in the flesh. :D

As the Men's Group leader at my church we meet atleast once a month. This meeting is dinner, BBQ, breakfast, lunch, etc. with a short devotional. It really focus on fellowship, getting to know one another and building trust with one another.

We also have one event a month which involves, free car wash, racking the widows at the church leaves, free oil changes for the elders in the church, etc.

Our last meeting of the year is in Nov (since dec is so busy for everyone) and we cook breakfast or lunch for Ladies minstry and any other person that wants to come.

Starting in Jan. we will start the new year with a bible study on Witnessing (1 Thess.) If we want to grow as a church or a Men's group we need to share the gospel in the right way.

Just find out what your men have in common and shoot for that to get started.

I forgot, we call the group "The BOMB" Bomb meaning Body Of Men Believing. I even do a monthly newsletter called "The BOMB" and if you like a copy of it just PM me and I'll email a copy to you.

we also are skipping our monthly meeting in December, and will be having a Christmas party in January at a local bowling ally. :)

I had a very long conversation with Mark Menke about men's ministry when he came to our regional men's retreat a few years back.

in short, I was getting disappointed that there was no growth after half a year or so and that in fact, the initial enthusiasm was gone and there was fewer guys faithfully coming. I had a heart to heart with him and wanted to be sure if there was something I was doing wrong, and if someone else was better for the job, and I could just participate.

the bottom line is that what I was experiencing for the starting up of a men's ministry was pretty typical, as he had experienced and knew about from his position. He said that it can take a year or more, and though there are exceptions, a mens ministry starting from scratch will typically take over a year to get any kind of established foundation.

our group now has every active church attending man attend our meetings, at least once in a while, and most of them attend each month. we also have visitors nearly every month as they bring their friends. the younger guys are especially good at this.

i also recommend "why men hate going to church". but I don't agree with all his conclusions or directions; he can be pretty "extreme" in his manliness approach. that doesn't mean there are a few babies in the bathwater (so to speak) that shouldn't be thrown out. there is much to glean from the book, and gives some interesting insight to the "womanization" of the church, as it is now (generally speaking).

and I think that this graphic is probably being generous to the men.

There never was a horse that couldn't be rode and there never was a cowboy that couldn't be throwed.

:) we just call our group the men's group. but what we are known for is that our monthly meetings are held in "The Men's Room". one of the guys in the group is pretty centrally located and believes that it is his ministry to provide a place to meet. he remodeled his basement before becoming part of the group and it is perfect for the group!

Recently, though we have had to bring in more chairs (for the devotion/teaching part), as we have been growing one or two at a time, the last few months! woohoo!!
