“Never in the history of man has there been a time when the call for strong men was louder or the need greater”.
These words of Dr Edwin Louis Cole ring especially true around the world today when we look at the devastating effects of fatherlessness and the lack of godly male role models in the world. Government statistics testify to the shocking reality of this modern day plague, with a generation of children growing up without a true father showing them the way. The reality is that many of these children get caught in a web of despair and defeat and all evidence shows that they are much more likely to be involved in crimes, become addicts and end up in prison or other institutions. Further, when they then grow into adulthood they have no foundation to stand on and many end up completely lost, with worsening of the cycle into subsequent generations.
In addition, many of us who have grown up with a father present have not, in many cases, received what we needed from them, as they themselves were untrained for the task at hand.
In response to this need we have established Warrior’s Men’s Ministry. Joel 3: 9 that we are called to ‘Wake up the mighty men’. This is our driving force as we endeavour to change men’s lives through discipleship and fathering. Our goal is to build and establish strong men, husbands and fathers, both here in Wales and around the world. We are a ministry to men, but not only for them. The real impact is seen in its beneficial effect on wives and children.
We ask men of all ages and backgrounds to join us and become a change agent for their lives and families. There are no restrictions to joining us and we are especially keen for young men and teenagers to become involved.
Our ministry formula is based discipleship and revealing the heart of a father. This is a lifelong process with each man submitting himself to a mentor and not just meeting as friends. The whole process is based on trust, submission and accountability, with your mentor assisting you on your journey through life. The program is designed to help you achieve your full potential as a man of God. Meetings are done in a group setting, with additional individual meetings to assist you through any problems you are facing. During the meetings the men pray together and go through a teaching curriculum. Group discussions led by the mentor help each man understand what he needs to change and apply in the different areas of his life.
In order to mentor other men each mentor must himself be mentored by someone else, and have completed the full curriculum and have been commissioned as a minister to men. In addition, each man who is part of the process must demonstrate his commitment to the church by serving in some capacity.
A key part of the process is reading books from our set curriculum and completing relevant associated assignments. The curriculum provides a strong and solid foundation of biblical truths for men of all races, ages and backgrounds. Other activities in the programme include; sermon preparation, men’s retreat, missions trip, one on one mentoring and men’s conferences.
