Prayer Champion. Every Men's Ministry Leadership Team - no matter what the size, needs a man who is a prayer leader. He not only is an intercessor but is able to pull together a few other men to pray. Priority one for this man is to encourage your men to pray with and for your pastor.
Aaron and Hur Ministry. In Exodus 17:8-16, Joshua fought the Amalekites while Moses stood on a hill overlooking the battle with his arms raised. As long as his arms were up, Joshua prevailed. When Moses grew tired and his arms fell, the Amalekites prevailed. Aaron and Hur seated Moses on a rock and held up his arms. Joshua won the battle. Every pastor needs an Aaron and Hur.
Here are a few ideas on carrying out an Aaron and Hur ministry in your church. It is only a template. Adapt them to work in your situation.
If a man commits, but due to family or other responsibilities cannot meet with your pastor at the appointed time, he can still participate. Just make sure he is aware of your pastor’s prayer needs for the coming week.
A Sunday Variation: Have a man hold up your pastor (and congregation) in prayer during his message. Your pastor can provide message notes to the prayer warrior for his use as he prays.
Can women participate? Yes, by all means!
Result: Your pastor will know that his men support him and will experience, at a very practical level, a men’s ministry in action.
