Men's Disciplemaking  is a ministry of the Christian and Missionary Alliance (C&MA) located under the Office of Disciplemaking and Ministry Studies. 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.

Supporting Men Who Are Hurting

Discipleship:  Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted. 2Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. (Galatians 6:1-2)

In the church today we broaden the application of this passage – bearing burdens. We are to encourage, personally come along side, pray for and support, or exhort (encouragement with a warning) men who are struggling.

Disciplemaking Strategy: Hurting Men: These are men who are experiencing difficulties in their lives: marriage, financial, a wayward child, alcohol, pornography, job, personal or family health issues, etc. The issues our men face can be brought on by inappropriate behavior or bad decisions or because they are actively engaged in advancing Christ’s kingdom – attacks by Satan. Hurting men will fall into one of the four other categories of men in your church that we have address the past several months.

Many resources are available to deal with these issues such as recovery groups, financial counseling, marriage and parental guidance and addiction groups or counseling. (No Man Left Behind, p133, 209)

A disciple is sensitive to the needs of others.
