FHCM Men's Ministry a.k.a. "MEN OF VALOR"
One might wonder how men's ministry is any different from a woman's ministry or for that matter, any kind of ministry. After all, it would seem that ministry, if done in service for the Lord, is all the same regardless of the gender, age, or race of the individual serving.
Men's Ministry is the active pursuit of men in order to connect them to God, His Word, and other men for the purpose of winning, growing, and training God's man in Christ.
"And his brethren, men of valor... chief fathers, whom king David made rulers... for every matter pertaining to God, and affairs of the king."
~ 1 Chronicles 26:32
The Forest Hill Church Ministries "Men Of Valor" endeavor to provide men with the resources to develop Godly character and equip them to influence their world and lead others to Jesus Christ.
The "I.B.I.Y." (I-Believe-In-You) mentoring group of Forest Hill Church Ministries is an organization created by men for the specific purpose of mentoring boys in the years of adolescence through their passage into manhood. We believe it is the responsibility of the men in the community to guide our boys into integrity, accountability, truth and mission. In doing so, these boys will gain more essential tools to get through adolescence and transition into adult life
James 5:16 says,
Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much."
"And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature."
Jesus Christ commissioned His followers to go into the world and reproduce believers. This is a big calling that raises a question.
How do we reproduce believers? Can a men's ministry enable a man to better understand his calling in life and how to achieve it? Can a men's ministry challenge a man to grow deeper in wisdom, knowledge and spirit? Can a men's ministry teach men how to stay sexually pure? The answer to this question is a resounding YES!
