Igniting the Hearts of Men for Christ
The purpose of Men's Ministry through SAMBC is to encourage and equip churches to effectively reach, minister to, and activate men. We believe that reaching men is about relationships, and encourage the development of trusting relationships through meaningful shared experiences that may include fellowship, study, and missions participation. We encourage churches to implement the four cornerstones of men’s ministry:
- Evangelize Men to Salvation (outreach and fellowship)
- Establish Men to Spiritual Maturity (discipleship)
- Equip Men for Ministry (service within the body of the church)
- Extend Men on Mission (local, state, national, and international missions)
We believe that the pastor is key in the development and maintenance of an effective ministry to men, and that the ministry should support his overall vision for the church. We feel that each men’s ministry also needs a “champion” – someone who has a passion to see the ministry succeed – as well as a core leadership team to serve alongside him.
