The objective of Men’s Ministries is to disciple and equip the men of FBCD in their roles as men of God, whether married, single, older, younger. We seek to provide a venue for modeling the life of Christ to men. We seek to do this through teaching, fellowship, and service; providing opportunity for fostering spiritual friendships and developing discipling relationships, so that men can grow in conformity to Christ, specifically in their roles as men.

Here are eight non-negotiables that we strive for in our FBCD Men’s Ministry:

  • FILLING – God’s man is a self-feeder. Consistently studying and applying God’s Word independent of the church or small group is essential.  (1 Peter 2:1-3; Psalm 1:1-3).
  • TRAINING – God’s man receives regular/weekly biblical instruction (1 Thessalonians 2:13). This can be achieved through a weekly small-group Bible study or large-group study with small-group discussion.
  • PRACTICING – God’s man learns how to apply God’s Word to all areas of life. It is essential to allowing room for accountability within the men’s ministry for the purpose of consistency and obedience to God’s Word (James 1:22-25; Ezekiel 33:30-32).
  • UNITING – God’s man makes it a priority to connect with other men at least two times a month for the purpose of community, accountability, confession, and prayer (Galatians 6:1-3; James 5:16; Hebrews 10:23-24).
  • SURVIVING – God’s man learns to address major life temptations and/or crises according to his need and life-stage. (Ecclesiastes 4:9-12).
  • REACHING – God’s man gets involved in some form of men’s ministry based on his gifts and talents. God has called each of us to pour out to others what He has poured into us (1 Peter 4:10-11; Ephesians 4:11-13)
  • IMPACTING – God’s man invests time and resources into the lives of other men.  (2 Tim 2:22; Proverbs 27:17; Mark 3:13-14).
  • SHARING – God’s man learns to actively share his faith in order to lead others into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ (Acts 1:8; 1 Peter 3:15; Matthew 28:18-20).
