MARCH 1, 6:00-8:30PM & MARCH 2, 8AM-NOON at CORNERSTONE

We are living in a time and culture where traditional Christian marriages are literally fighting for their lives in a battle zone. As the new Pastor of Men’s Ministry, I gathered our leadership team together to discuss how we might make a difference in the lives of the 700 men and their families that call Cornerstone Church their home church.  There was no doubt that the marriage relationship was at the top of the list.

 

Whether married, dating, engaged, or divorced—men need to be equipped, encouraged and inspired to apply the truth of God’s word in their relationships and to be affirmed in their identity as the loving, caring, biblically grounded spiritual leaders God has called us to be.

 

If your marriage is good or great, strive for greater. If your marriage is hurting or broken, it’s time to take a step toward a new possibility for a relationship that can be healed and restored. This conference is the first of its kind at Cornerstone, sponsored by Cornerstone Men 318. Put March 1 & 2 on your calendar and be looking for more information soon. You can register for the event at the 318 Men’s Table at church or register online at cclb.org/men.  I’ll see you there along with Pastor Jerry, Pete McKenzie, Brian Sumner, and the 318 Worship Band!

"If your marriage is good or great, strive for greater. If your marriage is hurting or broken, it’s time to take a step toward a new possibility for a relationship that can be healed and restored."

"Despite what men think, we were never meant to go it alone. We can exist as lone wolves but we’ll never thrive as a collective force for Christ in the church or the community."

Men are a strategic force for change in the world, and they have an enemy, but it’s probably not the enemy you’re thinking of. It’s apathy. It is the appeal of inaction that lies within every man’s heart.

 

Despite what men think, we were never meant to go it alone. We can exist as lone wolves but we’ll never thrive as a collective force for Christ in the church or the community.

 

Only 10 percent of the churches in America have an active men’s ministry. But surprisingly all that is needed for a men’s ministry to work is for a church to have a team of men committed to a clear vision, prayer, values that support the mission, a man who is called by God to lead and the infrastructure to support it.

 

While the culture today would attempt to silence the voice of men by attacking their masculinity, exaggerating their male short-comings and belittling their Christian worldview, we believe this is not the answer. We believe men are meant to be a strategic force for change in the world and that God ordained men with power, authority and the command to disciple others where ever we go. It takes training; it takes prayer; it takes a transforming intimate relationship with Jesus Christ and the spiritual toughness to live it out.

 

But men cannot and were never supposed to do it alone. Welcome to men’s ministry.
