All Nations New Testament Church of God Fellowship
It is the vision of ManPower Ministry to impact and empower the male believer with transformative truths that enable men to experience a richer fuller relationship with Christ. Our approach is a practical, pragmatic assessment of obstacles and the removing of blockages that have historically deterred them from being successful in Kingdom growth. It is our vision to enhance and guide men into Biblically sound relationships in their families and churches by making continual deposits into their spiritual, emotional, and economic development as they seek their rightful place in the Kingdom of God!
Our overall purpose is to develop men into becoming passionate disciples for Christ. Our desire is to move from just a Men’s Ministry, to a Ministry “To” Men. This move will require a mindset and process change that begins from the very first day a man joins our church.
Bishop Evan Grant – General Overseer/Senior Pastor
Hardly any Pastors we talk to are totally satisfied with what’s happening when it comes to their men. It seems the women’s ministry runs circles around the men. It’s not necessarily a budget thing either. It’s just this sense that there could be more. More participation, more depth, more passion, more commitment is possible.
Our church today need both male and female, but especially male because when a man goes ‘all-in’ for Jesus, his influence reverberates through to his wife, his kids, his workplace, his community and his church. He becomes a disciple-maker if only through the ‘sermon’ of his life. He’ll become a more generous giver, both of his time and his treasure. He’ll draw other men to Jesus and to himself and to his church. Over time, his friends will be attracted to what he has and how he lives. Men in the church will respect and follow him.
As a Pastor, about the only thing you can do all by yourself is prepare and preach sermons. You can visit the sick, do funerals and weddings, but the work of the church requires the effort of others. The first place you turn for help is your staff, but that resource gets exhausted pretty quickly. At some point, you have to depend on lay people, on volunteers, on men who are willing and able to roll up their sleeves and help.
