Welcome to information on the Men’s Growth & Support activities of Forest Lake Baptist.
The King’s Men ministry purpose is focused on:
- walking with God and growing in our Christian Life (Joshua 1:7)
- being faithful to our Marriage Covenant (Malachi 2:14-16; Mark 10:2-12; 1 Corinthians 7: 10-11)
- being Godly leaders in our home and at Church (Ephesians 5:25-30 & 1 Peter 3:7)
- being Fathers for our Sons and Daughters (Ephesians 6:1-4)
- dealing with the “800 kilogram Gorilla” in the room on issues not usually discussed such as lust, pornography, anger, our thoughts and more (Matthew 7:1-5 & Galatians 6:1-5)
- supporting other Men through honest friendships, accountability & Godly life experiences (2 Corinthians 1:4)
- Being REAL
There comes a time of crisis and frustration in every man’s life where he needs another man to speak into his life to challenge him. We need other men to encourage and support us in our battle for wholeness and purity.
This is the man who cares enough to cause some sparks to fly if necessary – Proverbs 27:17 – “As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens the composure of his friend”.
So what are you doing to help become the man that God intends you to be?
What are you doing to support other men you know and have regular contact with them?
Join with us!
