New Hope’s Men’s Ministry applies our mission to some particular challenges facing men:
Integrating head to heart –knowledge and emotions – proves difficult for many men, and Christian men are no exception. Struggles and disappointments accumulate over time, and the emotions tied to these events can make it hard to connect with Jesus. Over the past decade, one particular ministry has formed to address this problem with powerful and life-changing results: Marked Men for Christ. New Hope encourages men who are interested to take part in MMFC retreats, and provides follow-up for those who attend. For more information, visit www.markedmenforchrist.org.
Along with our regular teaching ministries, New Hope provides men with a special opportunity to grow in their knowledge of the Scriptures: Men’s Midweek. Each Thursday morning at 7:00 AM, men gather at New Hope to watch and discuss talks from great Christian teachers. Speakers have included Sinclair Ferguson, Michael Horton, Donald Miller, and R. C. Sproul. Lessons are chosen so that anyone can jump in at any point, and the group always wraps up in time to get to work. Come when you can and leave when you need to. Coffee will always be waiting!
New Hope’s men regularly take part in projects organized by our elders and deacons. Past projects have included free health fairs and dental clinics for the uninsured, home and auto repair, and speakers addressing topics of faith and life.
