MEN'S MINISTRY

Proverbs 27:17Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another. 


2 Timothy 2:2and what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.


Men, you have the responsibility, joy, and privilege of being the shepherd of your family. 

You also have the responsibility, joy, and privilege, to lead in the church, the body of Christ.

The goal of the men’s Ministry at Fellowship Baptist Church is to equip men to be godly leaders in their homes, in the church, and in the community.

To put it another way: We’re just a bunch of guys getting together to try and figure out sanctification and how life works.

The of Fellowship’s Men’s Ministry exists to:

  • Develop godly, mature men who are growing in sanctification

  • Equip men to lead and shepherd their families,

  • Raise up men to lead in the church, and

  • Serving our community.


We aim for this goal in several ways:

  • Personal Discipleship

  • Bible Study

  • Small Group studies & discussions


ONE-On-ONE DISCIPLESHIP

Every Christian man should be involved in a discipling relationship. The pattern set by Paul & Timothy, as well as in the letter to Titus reveals the great benefit of pouring into one another spiritually. We honor God, grow spiritually, and build up the church when we strive to help one another follow Jesus better through personal one-on-one discipling relationships.

One-on-One Discipleship is the central element of our men’s ministry. We desire for every man at Fellowship to be part of the process of discipleship, whether through one-on-one relationships, other studies, or both. 


The best way to get started is to ask an older, more mature Christian man to disciple you. Maybe you see that one of their strengths is one of your weaknesses, and they can help you pursue that area of your life. Or, perhaps you see great potential in a younger man and you can offer to get together for both their benefit and yours.


If you would like to be involved in this kind of mentoring relationship, talk to one of our pastors. We have several resources that can help you get started in this important area of the Christian life. 


TUESDAY MORNINGS

We meet Tuesday mornings from 6:00-7:00 a.m. at Mike Jernigan’s house, have a great breakfast (Mike always serves an amazing breakfast), do a variety of studies, and have discussion designed to sharpen one another spiritually. 


Our next study is Knowing Christ, and begins on Tuesday, October 9 at 6:00 a.m.


The Puritans loved the Bible, and dug into it in depth. Also, they loved the Lord Jesus, who is of course the Bible's focal figure; they circled round him, centered on him, studied minutely all that Scripture had to say about him, and constantly, conscientiously, exalted him in their preaching, praises, and prayers. 

We’re following the outline Mark Jones has laid out in his book “Knowing Christ” as we seek to enrich our souls with a close study of our glorious Savior.

WEDNESDAY LUNCH

On Wednesdays, from Noon to 1:00 p.m., we get together for lunch and a brief study and discussion on various subjects. Currently, we’re doing a study of The Lord’s Prayer with Al Mohler. Bring your own lunch, or let Rob know ahead of time and we’ll have lunch waiting for you. 


WEDNESDAY EVENINGS

Meeting Wednesdays, from 8:00-9:00 p.m., this class will prepare you to clearly and confidently defend your faith. Apologetics, the defense of your faith, can be a part the natural normal conversations you have in your daily life. When we ground our faith in a deep, passionate love for the Bible, we’re able to offer those who ask “a reason for the hope that is in you.” 

Including teaching, discussions and personal study, this study will give you real-world practical advice that will equip you to be more confident in your ability to think biblically and communicate with others persuasively. You’ll be encouraged in your faith as you study this important topic with other men.

MEN's BREAKFAST

Bi-monthly Saturday Morning Men’s Breakfast

8:00-9:30


Our First Family Shepherd Breakfast is scheduled for

Saturday, November 3

We’ll meet bi-monthly for fellowship, teaching, and a time of discussion and accountability.


Men need accountability for their God-given responsibilities in their homes. We all need help as we strive together to protect our marriages, raise kingdom-minded children, value the relationship between church and home, and navigate difficult family dynamics.


We all have a desire to lead well and we desire to see the men of Fellowship leading well and equipped to faithfully shepherd their families.
