Advancing Together

We are indebted to Dr. Dan Erickson, director, People Matter Ministries, for permission to adapt his paper, Why Ministry to Men, May 1, 2004, for our use. We are further indebted to Jack Kelley, Executive Director of Men’s Ministry for International Pentecostal Holiness Church (IPHC), for providing this paper to us.

The framework for and function of men’s ministry sections (pages 17-23) is a blending of Dr. Erickson’s paper and a presentation by Chris Van Brocklin, Director of Men’s Ministry for the Evangelical Free Church of America, entitled Focusing Men’s Ministry in the Local Church. Chris’s presentation blends the men’s ministry funnel from Promise Keepers with Man in the Mirror’s create, capture, and sustain ministry model.
