Our first annual GIVE DAY will be October 21, 2019. This new venture will expand leadership resources for every man to strengthen his relationship with Jesus Christ. It is meant to reach out to men who may not have been connected to men’s ministries up to this point.
Information on the GIVE DAY will be distributed to all contacts, churches and scouting ministries within the commission.
We will be casting our “nets in new water.”
Jesus himself appeared to his disciples at the Sea of Tiberius post resurrection. Peter and the disciples had decided to go fishing, but throughout the night they caught nothing. Early in the morning Jesus stood on the beach and called out to them, “Friends, you haven’t any fish?” “No”, they answered. He said, “Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some.” ––John 21:4-8
If we continue to do things the same way, we will continue to get the same results. By casting a wider net, we can re-tool our skillsets to reach younger and more diverse men. With the new resources for transformational small groups experiences, churches can find a treasury of life-enriching outcomes.
This one-day giving opportunity will provide financial support for men’s and scouting ministries throughout all levels of our church.
