Strong Man – Men’s Ministry
Men’s Ministry is built upon upon the foundation of being men that pray, serve, and love Jesus. The desire and goal is that every man is to be a “Strong Man.” A strong man worships the Lord (Psalm 29:1-2); a strong man prays (1 Timothy 2:8); a strong man is wise and studies the Word (Proverbs 24:5 & 2 Timothy 2:15); a strong man serves (Mark 9:35); these are a few of the qualities and characteristics of a strong man, but above all – a strong man loves God (Mark 12:30)! Through the year we will study God’s Word, share in fellowship events, serve, and pray together as we grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ
Strong Man – Men’s Ministry Prayer!

As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving. Colossians 2:6-7
‘Is not My word like a fire?’ says the LORD, ‘And like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?’ Jeremiah 23:29
Strong Man Work Out
Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. Matthew 7:24-25
A wise man does God’s Word. The strong man work out is a monthly work out of memorizing three ‘sets’ of verses to strengthen you in living out God’s Word (Psalm 119:11). As you take up the challenge be willing and ready to also ‘spot’ one another in the learning and living out of these verses.
1 Corinthians 10:13 – There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God [is] faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear [it].
Hebrews 2:18 – For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.
James 1:12 – Blessed [is] the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.
