Ministry Highlight: Ministry to Men

Bow Valley Christian Church’s Ministry to Men continues to build a framework for men to strengthen their relationships with God, their wives, their children, and their community. While it’s easy to get wrapped up in the ‘numbers’ game, it is important to focus on the things that speak to our ministry’s mandate. One major theme stood out for me in the past year — engaging our youth boys in service areas with the men of BVCC — namely helping out with the Stampede Breakfast doing set up / teardown (what teenage boy likes to be up on a Sunday morning at 6:00 am to setup tables, chairs, etc?) and assisting with serving the breakfast. Also, the boys setup a concession at the Promise Keepers conference to raise money for Lifeline Ministries. By partnering with the Ministry to Men, our youth boys were exposed to seeing ‘men in action’, including seeing, hearing, and witnessing 300 men learning, singing, and praising their God for a full day during the Promise Keepers Conference — very powerful. They witnessed how a man’s walk with Jesus is life–long, no matter what age.
