Men's Disciplemaking is a ministry of the Christian and Missionary Alliance (C&MA). Our purpose is to assist churches in developing healthy ministries to men. We encourage local churches to build effective and intentional methods for creating, capturing and sustaining a ministry to men that is unique to its own situation. To assist churches in building on that framework, we seek best practices and success stories in discipling men from across The Alliance. Our vision is to see churches move men from the community and disciple them into service. The website is based on the "No Man Left Behind" model developed by Man in the Mirror. For more information on the model go to: www.nomanleftbehind.org.

I am in Christ.
For I delight in the law of God according to the inward man. But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. (Romans 7:22-23)
Writing today, Paul might have said: I have decided to do God’s will, however, there is something deep down in my subconscious mind that is at war with my conscious mind. I don’t understand why I can’t get myself to do what I know God wants me to do. These deep feelings make me feel unworthy to do what God has called me to do, after all, how can I possibly overcome all the damage I’ve already done.
Romans chapter 6 Paul stated that we, as believers, are in Christ and, therefore, are free from sin. In chapter 7 he describes the struggles we face.
Satan will always use our past sins and failures to remind us that we are unworthy to do anything worthwhile. When we fail we tend to wallow in that failure.
Then Paul moves on to Chapter 8 where he states:
There is, therefore, now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.
The challenge is not to let our past take residence in our thinking.
When Christ enters in, we are under new management. We have moved out of the old house into a new one that is guarded and maintained by the Holy Spirit.
Self-doubt, discouragement, and failure live in the old house. We are under new management. With the Holy Spirit, we are victorious.
Where do you live?
Who am I? I am being continuously renewed. I am under the management of the Holy spirit.

Over 70 percent of the boys who are being raised in the church will abandon it during their teens and twenties. Many of these boys will never return.
