Podcast Episode #303

Men’s ministry is lacking in many churches, so today we cover the four essentials churches should consider when launching or sustaining a men’s ministry. This episode is based on a blog post by Eric Geiger and walks you through these four essentials with practical application focused on ministering to men.

Some highlights from today’s episode include:

  • Every man needs godly men connecting him to the church.
  • I cannot imagine going through life without having a purpose or mission.
  • Every man wants to be a part of something that is bigger than himself.
  • With new ministries, find a champion and resource them toward a specific mission.
  • One of the greatest needs in the church is to understand the big picture of Scripture.
  • Churches truly can have dynamic ministries to men by men. Many don’t.

The four essentials we cover for ministering to men are:

  1. Connected: Every man needs other godly men (Hebrews 10:24-25).
  2. Discipled: Every man needs to grow (Colossians 1:28-29).
  3. Challenged: Every man needs a holy mission (2 Corinthians 5:18).
  4. Transformed: Every man has a master (2 Corinthians 3:17-18).
