The central theme of our gathering revolves around the concept of "Standing Strong in the Lord," drawing inspiration from the passage Ephesians 4:11-12. Throughout the event, we have carefully curated three impactful sessions that will equip you to be effective men's ministry leaders. These sessions will delve into essential topics such as Prayer and Bible Study, the Art of Cultivating a Flourishing Men's Ministry, and the Holistic Well-being of Men—encompassing the realms of Physical, Mental, and Spiritual health. The event will culminate in a meaningful and uplifting worship experience, filled with reverent praise.


We look forward to your participation and the opportunity to shape a vibrant men's ministry in local churches across the Northeastern Jurisdiction.
