Why is Men's Ministry Important?

  • Men lead others best by modeling Jesus Christ in thoughts, words, and deeds.
  • Spiritual maturity is signified in spiritual reproduction, as the faith of mature disciples pass on in others.
  • Men growing in Christ become effective spiritual leaders in their homes and congregations, working as partners with their spouses and congregational leaders - both lay and clergy.
  • Spiritually growing men help congregations to become vital and alive.
  • Everything desired from and through  men comes as a result of men growing spiritually and maturing as disciples: family blessings, stewardship, service, outreach, prayer, spiritual leadership, lifestyle evangelism, and faithful obedience. Men are foundational to the life and health of the church.
  • When a man lives daily in surrendered faith, God is honored and many lives are blessed. Transformed hearts are forged only within Christ-centered lives-nothing less is our acceptable offering; nothing less truly reveals Christ.

Our Vision

The United Methodist Men at Ebenezer is a core group of men, partnering with their pastor, to invite and initiate spiritual growth opportunities for all men of the church. Everyone has different gifts, graces, and areas of interest. Therefore, opportunities for participation would include prayer groups, missions, Bible studies, retreats, workshops/seminars, small groups in the Wesleyan tradition, leading and participating on committees, teaching Sunday School classes, youth ministries, scouting, mentoring and assisting in leading worship service. The focus is not inward, concentrating only on those who attend a set meeting, but outward to all men, assisting them to engage the process of spiritual growth. The Ebenezer United Methodist Men sponsor a male mentoring program which involves tutoring, counseling, special projects, and general support for young males at James McHenry Elementary School and Thomas Johnson Middle School in our community.

Our Mission

Our mission is to support spiritual growth among men helping men to mature as disciples as they encourage spiritual formation in others.

Helping men grow in Christ, so others may know Christ.
