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.

Testimony: A pastor described his ministry to men as a Saturday morning Bible study with fifteen men. This was in a church if 140 attendance on Sunday. Several years later he reported that his ministry to men involved fifteen men who gathered for Bible study every Saturday. Why wasn’t the study group larger? Or, why wasn’t there more than one men’s Bible study?
Testimony: My name is Richard Haner, I am pastor of the Journey C&MA church in Tiffin, Ohio. I have been the pastor for two years now. When God called us to the church, we found a struggling, sleeping church full of apathy. Sixty to 65 people came regularly on Sunday. God burdened me with a ministry to men and the need for them to fulfill their role in the home and the church. Men bring their families with them to a far greater extent than women or kids. After two years of placing the emphasis on men and families, our church has doubled in size and would be more but we are out of room. I pour my life into the men by one-to-one or two or three at a time. I am intentional with my men: I am real, honest, and open with them. We deal with the issues they face. Pastor Rich.
Testimony: A Man in the Mirror regional director in Arkansas was helping a church improve its ministry to men. Over a six month period the men’s Bible study grew from five to fifty.
