Why a Men’s Leadership “Advance”?

Posted by on Jan 7, 2011 in Men's Advance

This is a good question and it deserves a thoughtful answer. The reason we call our men’s conference an advance is because as Christians we are determined to not retreat. Instead, we are committed to advance through time with the Gospel of Jesus Christ knowing full well that Christ will be victorious over all of his enemies. It is good for us to reflect upon these Scriptural statements from King David, our Lord, and the Apostles:

Psalm 110:1 “The LORD says to my Lord: ‘Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool’.”

Matthew 16:18b “I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.”

1 Corinthians 16:13-14 “Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. Let all that you do be done in love.”

2 Corinthians 10:5 “We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ.”

1 John 4:4 “Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.”

Bible passages like these give strength and resolve to Christians. Each one is significant in its own way in shaping the Christian life. Therefore, the vision for our Men’s Leadership Advance is to educate and encourage Christian men to fulfill their God-given calling as leaders in the home, and to better prepare them to serve as leaders within Christ’s Church.
