Men’s Ministry Meets Social Distancing
From the Man in the Mirror Team
We all share a fundamental understanding that the church isn’t a building—that the body of Christ isn’t defined by or confined to four walls, a roof, and a steeple. This season of uncertainty and difficulty surrounding COVID-19 presents endless opportunities to demonstrate this in how we care for and love those in our communities.
And yet, it also presents challenges in continuing to minister to the men around us, as millions of people are social distancing or sheltering in place.
In the absence of four walls, a roof, and a steeple, how do you disciple men effectively, especially when they may be anxious, isolated, sick, or fearful?
We want to equip you to overcome those challenges and thrive in the spirit of Hebrews 10:23-25 (NASB): Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful; and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.
In this post, we’re going to introduce you to five resources you can use right now in your ministry to men. And at the end, we’ll share some tools that will enrich your experience and make online community easier.
