Tip of the Week

The purpose of the Tip of the Week is to provide weekly insight for Pastor’s and Men’s Leaders into the Biblical Design for Men, Issues Facing Men, and How to Build an Engaging Relationship with men that results in Authentic, Biblical manhood. We provide this insight because every man and every church deserves an environment for an engaging Ministry with Men.

Building a Ministry of Spiritual Mentoring: Planning

by | Aug 31, 2022

Big Idea: Creating dynamic opportunities that meet the needs of your men requires intentional, knowledge-driven, strategic planning.  This plan will guide men from where they are today to spiritual and social growth, and ultimately to become a disciple who disciples others.

There is a balance between strategic planning and having the growth process feel organic. Men want to be challenged; they are by nature task-oriented; so, creating an opportunity for your men to get excited about their future and the future of your church is necessary. However, a plan that is too rigid will pull the relational life right out of where you are trying to take your men. Growth occurs in the context of trust, relational connections, and a process where men can achieve the spiritual maturing they are desiring. Just as you need a diverse leadership team to reach all of your men, you need a diverse plan to provide the opportunities for growth that you desire.
