Mission Statement

The mission of the Men’s Ministry at NWCC is to provide men with the resources to develop Godly character and help equip them to influence their world for Jesus Christ.

The Biblical principles which we will not compromise but will use to define our ministry.

  • We Value Servant Leadership
    Matt. 20:26, Col. 3:17, Eph. 4:2,16; 5:1,25 – Giving of ourselves to meet the needs of others is our response to God’s mercy and grace. A servant’s spirit should be evident in all believers, especially those in leadership.
  • We Value Clear Communication
    Eph. 4:15, 29 – The Church, like the human body depends on all its parts working together. Loving and honest communication is required among all believers together.
  • We Value The Home As The Little Church
    1 Tim. 3.5 True leadership must be demonstrated in the home before it is established in the church.
  • We Value Relationships
  • We Value Family
    Eph. 5:21-6:4 – Families, growing God’s way, are essential to individual stability and to the health of the Church – both present and future.

4 Key Ideas to Keep in Mind:

  1. A successful men’s ministry will be built on these cornerstones:
    The senior pastor’s enthusiastic support, a man passionate about reaching other men, a committed leadership team, and the right strategy.
  2. Be purpose driven rather than event driven.
    Men want to be a part of something larger than themselves. Often men don’t come to our events because they don’t see any larger purpose. Make sure that every event you schedule clearly serves your overall purpose.
  3. Be relationship based rather than task oriented.
    Most long-term change takes place in the context of church-based relationships. Events attract men, relationships make them stick. Give men plenty of opportunities for fellowship and conversation. The relationship is the task.
  4. Make disciples and pray for workers.
    The Bible tells us, “Go and make disciples…baptizing them.” Often we get this confused with, “Go and make workers… browbeating them.” Too often we set the agenda for our ministry and then pester men to be involved. Instead, we ought to make disciples and then pray that God leads them to a place of service.

“However, I consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me – the task of testifying to the Gospel of God’s grace.” Acts 20:24 (NIV)
