Mission Statement (what our purpose is)
The Mission of men’s ministry at Cloverdale Baptist Church is to train and equip men to be God fearing leaders in their homes, in their places of work or school, and in the church. (Ephesians 4:12; 2 Timothy 3:17)
Vision Statement (what the future looks like)
As an overflow of Christ’s work in our lives, we will be a group of men that passionately seek holiness and truth, actively serving and loving our families, our colleagues, and our church as God fearing, Word saturated, Christ empowered, servant leaders. (1 John 3:18; 1 Peter 1:14-16; Ephesians 4:24)
Strategy (how we will achieve the vision)
We will achieve our vision by taking men who desire to be faithful, available, and teachable and bring them into accountable relationships under God and with each other. We will actively pursue men connecting them to God, His Word, and each other for the purpose of winning, growing, and training God’s man in Christ. (1 Thessalonians 5:11;Col 3:16; Prov 27:17)
Men's Breakfast occur on the first Saturday of each month (September-May). This is a time for men to get together for food, fellowship and a time of study and prayer while we reflect on God’s Word.
