I am my brother’s keeper!
II Timothy 2:2
“And the things that you have heard from me amongst many witnesses, commit thou to faithful (pistos, trustworthy) men that they shall be able to teach others also.”
“Now when Abram heard that his brother was taken captive, he armed his three hundred and eighteen trained servants who were born in his own house, and went in pursuit. So he brought back all the goods, and also brought back his brother Lot and his goods, as well as the women and the people. NKJV
The vision of Faithful Men Ministries is to see men’s lives changed through the gospel of Jesus Christ and to see men mature in the Lord, become committed and faithful men. We believe the example in Genesis with Abram and his 318 men, epitomizes real men’s ministries in the body of Christ. When we as Christian men, hear that a brother has been taken captive, by drugs, alcohol, pornography, adultery, lying, cheating, stealing or anything that enslaves him, we must be willing to drop what we are doing and pursue and restore them back into a right relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.
Our main purpose is relationships. The driving force behind everything we do is based on a relationship with God through Jesus Christ and to develop and maintain relationships with one another. Our secondary purpose is to facilitate, instruct, encourage, exhort, and mobilize men for God. The need is great in men’s lives to be everything God created them to be. Pastors and men’s leaders must have the tools necessary to make disciples of all men.
Our strategy is to mentor men through the local church by teaching the pastors and leaders how to disciple their men. We will fulfill this strategy primarily by using the ministry teachings provided through materials from Edwin Louis Cole’s ministry. The backbone of Faithful Men Ministries will be the pastors and other faithful men who can demonstrate the pattern of true manhood. Faithful Men Ministries believes that reaching men effectively in this generation will take more than words on a page and in order to be successful we must utilize the most current technologies available. This generation and others to come will have access to more information than the previous generation to the point that their minds will be saturated with images and information. We will use the latest and most useful means of communicating the truth of Jesus Christ to them.
