Our Vision: Unite the men of the Downriver community as an immobilized, spirit filled, force for the Kingdom of God, leading our families with Christ-likeness; loving our wives, raising up godly children, maintaining authentic testimonies in the work place, leading in our churches, bearing fruit for the Kingdom of God.
Our movement: This would be a dynamic movement of men between sponsoring churches generating a contagious move of the Spirit in the men of downriver, calling men to prayer and repentance, reviving faith, establishing purpose and mission, and inspiring men toward intentional growth and godly friendship. Example – if there were four sponsoring churches men would meet in church A week one, and at church B, week two, church C week three, church D, week four, and then the rotation would begin again. Men could limit their participation to only when it is at their church, or they could follow the rotation for more involvement.
Accountability: The oversight for this group will be a unified board made up of the Pastors in the participating churches who will meet twice annually with the core of the Men’s group to discuss direction, progress, and vision.
