Mobilizing Men

Ministry is hard. It requires coaching, protection, and goals. It cannot be done solo. Too often in the church, we send men out to minister on their own. We build them up and get them excited about the ultimate goal - to win the world for Jesus - but without encouragement, training, and support, they wind up discouraged and frustrated, opting to stand aside rather than face failure.

Mobilizing men for one-on-one ministry is not really about individual ministry at all. It's more about building the support team men need so they're not surprised when opposition comes and so they have the support and weapons they need to combat it....and emerge victorious.

"Your mission field is the space between your two feet."
-Stuart Briscoe

We are surrounded by men who are in need of what only God can provide, and each one of us is in a strategic location to be his hands and feet. He has placed us in just the right church, neighborhood, workplace and club to have a ministry to the men around us.

How do we help the ordinary guy in the pew - the guy in the marketplace day in and day out who wants to honor God in his work and influence friends and neighbors for Christ? Ministry is first and foremost about relationship, one man walking with another man, encouraging and empowering him in his spiritual journey.

With that kind of foundation, we offer leaders the opportunity to operate out of the 2 Timothy 2:2 method of leadership development that says, “And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable men who will also be qualified to teach others."

Leaders and Armies

At No Regrets, we have worked with hundreds of churches and thousands of men. Every ministry in the church requires leaders. Men’s ministry is no different. Your men’s ministry will only be as strong as the men who lead it. One of the most often asked questions is, “How can I build leaders?” The answer seems to be simple and almost trite. But, the answer to this and similar questions is to disciple them. In order to develop leaders, you have to invest in them personally by discipling them.

In Jim Putman’s book DiscipleShift, he writes, “You can’t lead where you don’t go, and you can’t teach what you don’t know.” If you are a pastor or a men’s leader, you will find it exceedingly difficult to sustain a men’s ministry in your church unless you begin personally discipling men yourself. Jesus gave us the model when he recruited his twelve leaders.

"He appointed twelve – designating them apostles – that they might be with Him and that He might send them out to preach and to have authority to drive out demons.”       Mark 3:14-15

The apostle Paul, in his letter to the church in Thessalonica says he, Silas, and Timothy, “were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well." This and other examples throughout Scripture give us the model for raising up and developing leaders. There is no magic formula or silver bullet. It’s simply the time-tested method of personal discipleship that is at the root of every successful ministry in the church.

"My prayer is that God will raise up an army of men wholly committed to him and wholly committed to expanding his kingdom across the street and around the world."
-Steve Sonderman

But, how do you do it?

Begin by becoming to men what you want men to become to each other.
