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 Chosen
You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name, He may give you. (John 15:16)
Jesus is told His disciples that he chose them. The important factor in the disciples following Jesus was Jesus choosing them not their decision to follow Him. In the Greek, the word choose is to select from a group.
They were chosen for a purpose. He not only chose them that their sin would be forgiven and they would have eternal life. They were also chosen to be fruitful and productive in advancing His kingdom.
Think about this: when our children were born, we take what God gives us. With adoption we select or chose a child to bring into our family.
So it is in the spiritual life. We are adopted into the kingdom of God. God choses us to be a part of His family.
What fruit has He asked you to bear? For what purpose has He chosen you?
Who am I? I am chosen to advance the kingdom of God.
