Our Five-fold Vision…

Corporate Men’s Meetings
Circle of Love
Leadership Development
Adopt A Brother
Outreach and Evangelism

Corporate Men’s Meetings…..

the gathering of the saints is commanded in Heb. 10:24-25 “And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and good works; not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together; as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another; and so much the more as you see the day approaching.” Through the power of corporate prayer and worship, there is exposure to diverse gifts, divine appointments, and the benefit of special ministries that you would never be exposed to in a “one on one” situation. Through these gatherings you will be enriched in ways that you can’t experience alone, and the meetings will help establish the importance of belonging to the body of Christ and contributing your part.

Circle of Love…

is the deployment of intensive, emergency care. This part of the network serves to support men in life threatening crises. Men (to be assigned to the team leaders) gifted in various spiritual gifts are required to minister to the individual by applying God’s love and helping the individual through prayer, spiritual counseling and practical helps.

Leadership Development…

is essential to the continual growth of “My Brothers’ Keeper” network. Training is vital in assisting men to grow in Godly character, and is one of God’s methods for maturing and transforming a man into a more useful vessel for the work of Christ.

Adopt-A-Brother…

involves a man being assigned to an individual for one on one interaction, which is the foundation of fulfilling Christ’s vision for making disciples; helping the individual work out his salvation in practical application, e.g., teaching him accountability to a caring authority; teaching him how to tailor his schedule for regular times of fellowship, prayer, study in God’s Word, service projects, recreational activities, outreach, etc. This simple process of one on one will always be the most effective pattern of bearing fruitful relationships and maturing the saints.

Outreach and Evangelism…

God has committed to us the ministry and word of reconciliation. So one of the primary purposes for the men’s network is to reach out to men in need of salvation and/or restoration, that they may experience, along with the individual, the fruitfulness and joy that takes place in heaven every time the lost are restored.

 
Remember…

your faithful service, by example, is your greatest influence. It’s not what you know, but it’s who you are that counts. Your faithfulness and commitment to be your “Brothers’ Keeper” is what speaks! May we all grow in God’s love, sensitivity and purpose, in investing and laying down our life for our brothers.
