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

Manna Bible study – begins Saturday, September 15th 8:00 – 10:00 a.m. A light breakfast is provided. In the Blue Room.

It’s unescapable – everyone finds himself or herself in a wilderness at some point: whether it be health-related, financial, emotional, or relational wildernesses — the list goes on and on. In those moments, we are utterly dependent on God for well-timed help. If he doesn’t come through, we’re finished. For forty years, two million Israelites were in the wilderness, and God fed them supernaturally every morning with manna, teaching people who doubted Him that He can be trusted with everything they needed to survive. This is a lesson we need to learn too. In personal stories and applications of biblical lessons, Manna reveals how God specializes in making a way where there is no way. He proved it every day to the nation of Israel, never missing a day of being faithful. He was never late, and He was never early. He was always just in time. And He will be for you too.

Men, join us this September as we explore this timely book study together.  In it, Steve Farrar breaks Scripture down to everyday living with practical and applicable lessons for everyday life.  Together, we’ll find challenges and practical reminders of God’s faithfulness and provisions for our lives each and every day.

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!
