Being a spiritual leader of the family is one of the key roles men are commanded to be. The purpose for the Men’s ministry is to help build and strengthen relationships with our brothers in Christ and provide activities, which will promote spiritual growth. Some of the activities in this ministry include: Study groups, retreats, fellowships and workdays. The men’s ministry is dedicated to helping men be the Christ-like examples God calls us to be. The goal of the Men’s ministry here at Broken Bow is to provide men with resources and activities to develop godly character, and to equip them to influence their world for Christ. (Proverbs 27:17; 1 Thessalonians 5:11, Colossians 3:19. Ephesians 6:4)
