I believe that all Christians desire to live godly lives, but many lack clarity about what this looks like in the everyday.
In my experience, Bible teaching often provides important exhortations and broad-sweeping calls to obedience, for example:
But it’s often unclear about what it looks like to do actually do these things. Often, the next level of detail is missing – to connect truth with today.
This year I’m leading the team behind BASECAMP – 2 events that bring men together to hear from God, and be spurred on to live for Him. Last year, 3131 men from 18 denominations and 252 churches attended BASECAMP.
As I’ve been engaging with churches and inviting them to attend, I’ve visited many church websites and discovered a huge range of men’s ministry activities taking place across Australia.
From beer tasting and anger management courses, to fight clubs and curry nights – men’s ministry exists in many different shapes and sizes as men seek to build each other up, and introduce other men to Jesus.
If you’re passionate about men’s ministry, check out this list of men’s ministry ideas – mostly from Australia, but a few from overseas too (including Blokes, Babies and Bacon!).
My boss had previously expressed zero interest in Christianity.
He was like many Australians – highly educated, intelligent, sheltered from tragedy and lacking little his heart desired.
But he was rattled by one question he couldn’t answer:
“What happens when you die?”
This was the question posed to him by his 5 year old son after an unexpected death, and was perhaps the first question in his son’s life that he had no answer for.
I was thrilled then, when he then told me that he was going to send his son to Sunday School to explore these questions that his worldview struggled to answer.
