Sustain Momentum through Relationships

Building relationships is the engine that moves men from the community and pew into discipleship and service. Relationship building is critical in creating, capturing and now sustaining a ministry to men. Sustaining the ministry is about the spiritual growth of men.

Discipleship and Disciplemaking

What is a Disciple and How Do You Make One?By Patrick Morley.  Tom walked up to John and said, “Will you disciple me?” John nearly keeled over. He felt overwhelmingly inadequate.

 Spiritual Maturity: You are closing in on spiritual maturity when you can say to another man, “Follow my example.” What does it mean to be "spiritually mature?" And why do many men find spiritual maturity such a struggle? In this lesson we're going to answer those questions AND give you a practical tool that will help you monitor and increase your own spiritual maturity. Bible Study by Patrick Morley (40 minute video).

 Making Disciples: Making disciples is God’s designated way to release the power of His gospel on every problem we face. Everyone knows we have a "men problem." The collateral damage among women and children has been staggering--with no relief in sight. I know you care. Yet if you're like most of us, you can't help but wonder, What difference could I possibly make? I'm just one man. If you've been wondering what you can do, this is the lesson you've been waiting for. We each have a choice. We can sit in front of the TV and yell at the evening news, or we can do something about it. Bible Study by Patrick Morley (40 minute video)
