Enlistment Month – During the enlistment months of January and February, select a week and designate as your Chapter’s Enlistment Week.

Brief them on your fellowship goals, and have the pastor promote Men’s Ministries and its value to the ministry of the church.
Pastor Prayer Partners
Pastor Prayer Partners – This ministry is designed to give interceding prayer support for the pastor and ministries of the church. Have your men consider; (1) Just before each Sunday service – several of your men meet in the pastor’s office – lay hands on him and ask God to enable your pastor to guide that service with anointing and power, and (2) keep up with the needs of your church and have men continually informed of prayer requests, e.g. set up prayer teams to take this responsibility. Call (405) 787-7110, ext: 3224 for materials.

Reach 3 - A joint ministry with Evangelism USA to have each man prayerfully identify three men not known to be Christians from your work, neighborhood, and/or recreation. Pray daily for the salvation of these three men. Invite each man to a one-on-one, “non-agenda” meal. (May also invite spouse). Just get to know him. As appropriate, consider asking each man for prayer requests. Check back to see how it’s going. Later, consider inviting your three men to outreach events, Bible studies, or church. Continue praying and looking for ways to expose them to evangelistic opportunities. Once a man makes a commitment to Christ, help him become involved in church and discipleship opportunities.
