to follow the example Jesus set. He gathered together a group
of men to follow Him, to spend time with Him, to learn from
the example of His life and teaching, and to explore what
it means to be in relationship with God and with each other.
Jesus’ concern was not with programs to reach the
multitudes, but with men whom the multitudes would follow.
Men were His method of winning the world to God. His method
hasn’t changed and His mission continues…to
draw men into vital, life-giving relationships with Himself
and with each other.
To influence men for God through the building of
Christ-centered relationships and, in time, encourage them
to go and do the same.
- influence: To draw men into
vital, life-giving relationships with God and each other
by reaching out to men where they are through experiences
that are fun, adventurous, and life-changing, earning
the right to share with them the Good News of a relationship
with Jesus Christ.
- build: To walk beside men,
helping them grow in their love for Christ, their love
for each other, and the knowledge of God's Word. To help
men become the ones they were created to be.
- encourage: To help men know,
pursue, and fulfill their God-given purpose. To help
men pass on to the lives around them the Good News of
a relationship with Jesus Christ
