Men's Disciplemaking is a ministry of the Christian and Missionary Alliance (C&MA). Our purpose is to assist churches in developing healthy ministries to men. We encourage local churches to build effective and intentional methods for creating, capturing and sustaining a ministry to men that is unique to its own situation. To assist churches in building on that framework, we seek best practices and success stories in discipling men from across The Alliance. Our vision is to see churches move men from the community and disciple them into service. The website is based on the "No Man Left Behind" model developed by Man in the Mirror. For more information on the model go to: www.nomanleftbehind.org.

I know My Position
For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together (Romans 8:15-17).
As believers, we are no longer slaves to sin because we have been adopted into His family. With that adoption we have a present and future inheritance: eternal life and the indwelling Holy Spirit. It is the Spirit or Helper that tells us that we are members of His family and have not only been saved from our sins but are empowered to live according to God’s plan.
As children in that family we are heirs to the promises of God and are willing to follow Christ in suffering as a sign of our membership in His family.
Paul is saying that there is a cross and a crown as joint heirs with Christ.
What responsibility Has God given you as a member of His family?
Who Am I? I am a joint heir with Christ.

Christian universities are becoming convents. The typical Chriastian college in the U.S. enroles almost two women for every man. (www.christianitytoday.com/newsletter/mind40630.html)
