Faithful Men Training

Meeting every 4th Tuesday from 6:30-8:30pm in the K-building.

**Next Meeting is September 27th at 6:30pm**

We are studying a book called “Biblical Eldership” by Alexander Strauch. Please don’t feel intimidated by the title. You are not signing up to be an Elder, although we would love it if that is what God would lead you to do. The principles of the book apply to ANYONE who wants to grow as a GODLY MAN and lead a life “walking in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called” Eph. 4:1. We will concentrate specifically on the instruction regarding the biblical characteristics of leadership – in our families, our work environments, and most importantly, in our church. So, anytime you see the book refer to “elder” or “pastor” you should instead read it as “godly man.”


Homework: The first assignment is to read chapter #1 in the book and answer the questions in lesson #1 in the workbook. There is also some additional reading in the book – pages 186-202 and 227-238.

    • “Fill out your weekly activity worksheet (last page of the handouts from last night) for one full week between now and our next meeting. Prayerfully evaluate if you are making the most of your time (Eph. 5:15-16). Consider how you might say ‘no’ to some current activities that are not as important and say ‘yes’ to things that will help you grow as a faithful man. This worksheet is for your own edification. You will not be asked to turn it in for anyone else to see.” – Pastor Paul
