“…and Jesus said to them, ‘Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.”— Matthew 4:19
At CDM, we believe that men’s ministry is vital to the overall health of your church. When Jesus called the disciples to be “fishers of men,” He was calling them to model ministry after His example. Christ’s ministry was highly relational as well as instructive. Jesus didn’t just tell His followers how to live. He showed them how to live by walking the road they walked and breaking bread with them. Jesus modeled a life of obedience and sacrifice that glorified God, and that is what we want to point the men in our churches toward.
Today, the men in our culture are struggling to know what it means to be a Christian, a husband, a father, a businessman…and how to live their faith in every day life. As we seek to be “fishers of men,” we need to reach out to them at their point of need and lead them to a deeper understanding of who they are in Christ. When men are growing in their knowledge of Christ and the power of His grace, there is a great benefit to the Church and the broader culture. Marriages grow stronger. Families are blessed. Businesses and ministries make a positive impact on the community.
We are currently in the process of assembling a Men’s Ministry Leadership team. Be on the lookout for more information.
