Capture Momentum with the Next Right Step

After a create event, what is the next right step for your men? Some may need more of the create momentum activities to build confidence in moving onto activities with deeper spiritual content.  Others may be ready to go deeper spiritually. Therefore, moving your men from create momentum to capture momentum must be handled with specific attention to where each man may be on his spiritual journey.

A capture activity or event include workshops, seminars or conferences that address needs that men face; such as, finances, marriage, parenting, career planning, etc. These can be one-day or weekend events of four to six week studies. While create events are low on spiritual content, these events need to be biblically-based. They require a limited commitment because they of short duration. Finally, these events need to be a bridge to ongoing discipleship ministries such as a small group or mentoring.

Men's Ministry - How Much Is Enough. Do fewer events and do them better- much better. Enthusiasm and success can often lead to excess. I have seen this in my own church and in hundreds of churches across the Northeast. A team of men put something on for the men in their church and the men actually come! The organizers are surprised (shocked) at the turnout, and they immediately organize several other similar events. Sooner or later the men stop coming and what was once a true entry level event for men associated with the local church has turned into a small group of the same men. Read more...

Men's Small Groups. Why? It is clear from the Gospels that Jesus spent a great deal of time mentoring and coaching His disciples.
