Men's Ministry

Purpose of Men's Ministry
Our desire is to biblically train and equip men to be spiritual leaders in their homes, in the church, and in
their places of business. The Men’s Ministry develops men in Christian living to make a positive impact
for this generation and those to come. We accomplish this mission through Bible study, discipleship classes, evangelism training, leadership development, accountability groups, mentoring, retreats, mission trips and special events.
In today’s culture, it’s increasingly important for men to honor God with their hearts and lives.

Our Purpose is to define authentic manhood.  In our society, being a man is confusing.  There are a number of definitions according to the world's standards.  We will look at the Biblical call to be a real
man as one who rejects passivity, accepts responsibility, leads courageously and invests in eternity.
The purpose of the Men's Ministry at Access Church is expressed in Colossians 1:28

"That we may present every man complete in Christ."


What does it mean to be "complete in Christ" as a man?
To be complete in Christ means that we are happy in being a man!  We provide for our families.  We provide for our family, fight for righteousness sake, have close male friends that encourage us and are faithful to our wife (or keeping ourselves sexually pure before marriage).


In Proverbs 27:17 we are told, "As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another." 
Strong men build up other strong men.

Spiritually
Small groups of men are regularly being established. Their primary purpose is to help men grow in their relationship with God and build deep friendships with other godly men.  A natural result of this is spiritually stronger men, husbands, fathers, families and churches. Also, a small group setting facilitates solid and deeper friendships with other men.

Socially
The men of Access Church have many activities designed for fun and friendship such as softball, basketball, camping trips and fishing expeditions.  It’s OK to have fun!  Try it!  These are just a few of the many activities to check out.
