"For you have been called to live in freedom --not freedom to satisfy your sinful
nature, but freedom to serve on another in love"
Mission Statement: To unite, equip, and develop men to be followers of Jesus Christ. We will commit to be godly husbands, fathers, grandfathers, sons, and brothers, through the Word of God and prayer.
Today, most Adventists are aware of, are involved in, or support a gender-based ministry, with women’s ministry leading the way. Nevertheless, the men’s ministry director also fills an important role in the church, in that he works to encourage, lead, and nurture men who serve as brothers, husbands, fathers, and ministry leaders. The director is responsible for organizing, planning, and directing programs that will meet the unique spiritual and emotional needs of the men of the church.
