Faithful Men Training
Meeting every 4th Tuesday from 6:30-8:30pm in the K-building.
**Next Meeting is February 28th 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.”
