Man On

September 4, 2012 0 Comments

The men’s ministry at Life Conyers has started a new saying: “Man On.” We are more than just a program or event.  We are men learning to live for God in all areas of our life.

I encouraged the men to show up each Sunday knowing that it was a Men’s ministry day.  They need to show up switched on and ready to go. I coined the term “Man On.” Whenever I see them, all I have to do is say, “Man On,” and they know they need to be alert for to how God will use them. Every week they should show up ready to serve.

However, being “Man On” goes far beyond Sunday morning.  We must become, “Man On” with our families, “Man On” on our jobs and “Man On” in our communities. Every day is a Men’s Ministry day. (Or any ministry day) We have to think beyond just church. Church is wonderful and very important, but we must share Jesus everywhere we go. – “Man On.”
