Church of the Open Door

Men’s Ministries

Our ministry to men focuses on the unique strengths, and opportunities that men have to influence their work, home and church environments. This ministry provides an opportunity for men to socialize, develop community with one another, and reflect on themselves and their work in regard to Biblical truths, through prayer and Bible studies, monthly men’s breakfasts, church workday activities, retreats and other special events.

Goals

  • Reaching men for Christ
  • Helping them grow spiritually
  • Build them up & mobilize them for service in God’s kingdom
  • Develop deeper relationships with other men
  • Transforming men into the image of the Master

Prayer & Bible Studies

These small group studies focus on developing relationships with God and one another. Studies include; spiritual leadership development; discipleship; our role and responsibility as spiritual leaders in the home, workplace, and in the church; and accountability.

Men’s Bible Study

Each semester we study a different book. Below is the book we completed in the spring. We will announce the new book over the summer.

There is a way to experience a better life. Men, are you ready to become the person God has called you to be?  In A Life Beyond Amazing, Dr. David Jeremiah shares God’s strategy for change and challenges you to make nine important decisions that will transform your heart, your life, and your world.  This life-changing book explores the nine qualities of character that carry us forward. Three of these have to do with our relationship with ourselves, three deal with interactions with other people, and three of them focus on our relationship with God.  Spiritual principles are true in any situation. But we must make a conscious decision to employ them in our daily lives.

God has given each of us wisdom for these days.  A Life Beyond Amazing answers the questions that keep us up at night and shows that the way forward is a reminder of who we are in Christ and why it matters.

Men, if you are up for the challenge, join us each Saturday starting in September from 8:00 – 10:00 a.m. in the Blue Room, but it is never too late.  A light breakfast is provided.

Men’s Fellowship Breakfasts

They will begin again in the fall: Our men’s breakfasts provide a unique opportunity to meet together with other men to develop relationships, share testimonies, sing, and hear from a variety of guest speakers who inspire, challenge, and touch the hearts of men. A great setting to invite a neighbor, friend, or co-worker to connect with other men and to hear a message of God’s love at work in and through the lives of men. Breakfast is served at the bargain cost of $10.00, payable at the door. Please make your reservation at the Welcome Desk.

 

Men’s Retreat will be October 5-7, 2018
The speaker for this year’s retreat will be one of our missionaries, Paul Johnston. He has spoken at some of our retreats in the past and is fascinating to hear him open the Scriptures to us and share some of his stories. The theme for the weekend will be posted when available. Once again it will be held at Camp Calvary, 48 New Schaefferstown Rd, Bernville, PA 19506. If you have not gone in the past, talk to those who went to find out more about it — and maybe you will decide to go this year!
