DISCIPLES MEN WINTER RETREAT
We are trying to plan for a region-wide DM Winter Retreat. We need men in leadership roles at local congregations to help make this event a success.
Harvey Anderson from Indianola Christian Church will be reaching out to those who would like to help plan this in-person event for the winter of 2022. Please submit your contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org or call the regional office at 501-562-6053 with your contact information to be forwarded to Harvey. We hope to have a meaningful DM event with fellowship, food, and fun.
Keys to Success
There are several characteristics that have become apparent as keys to successful Disciples Men organizations. Below are just few to help you get started. These can be used as “ice breakers” in your discussions about starting a men’s group within your congregation.
- Men become enthusiastic when they are around other men who are consistently enthusiastic and who are committed and dedicated to a common cause.
- Men are excited about coming together as men to celebrate life as men and are enthusiastic about all-male worship services.
- Men are enthusiastic about doing soemthing that they can “own.”
- Men enjoy and appreciate projects/studies that they can follow through to completion.
- Men are interested in Bible Study.
- Not every man fits one program.
- Men respond to praise and recognition.
