Thanks to everyone
By Herman Lightsey
We can truly do all things through Christ who gives us the strength, the ability, and the desire to do great things for His purposes.
––based on Philippians 4:13
A successful NACP meeting was the result of a true team effort. Special thanks to the commission staff, especially Dr. Rick for keeping me and the meeting on task.
During this pandemic, God has given us new ways to reach men and their families.
We had a good attendance, but we are not reaching men in our local churches.
I challenge you to leave your comfort zone and reach out to men with whom you do not normally communicate––men of all ages, color, social status, and people who may not agree with your views (pick a subject).
We will be offering next-step training in coming months. When you receive the dates and links, please share them with men in local churches.
Thanks to God, our country and world are beginning to open up. We trust that our next NACP meeting (March 3-6, 2022) will be held in person. We will continue to live cast that meeting so more men can participate.
I offer three prayer suggestions:
Pray this ministry will be pleasing to God.
Pray for new ways to reach men for Christ.
Pray for strength and wisdom to seek His guidance and act on it.
Remember, this ministry is not about where or if men and their families attend church, this ministry is about where men and their families will spend eternity.
Grace and peace,
Herman Lightsey, president
