The SBC of Virginia is very fortunate to partner with local churches and organizations to provide leadership training, conferences, events and resources for ministry to men.
Men’s Ministry Partners:
Noble Warriors is an independent Christian Men’s Ministry. Their desire is to lock arms with pastors and leaders in local churches to engage, equip, and encourage men to walk with Christ and lead their families.
Men’s Ministry Conferences:
Leading Noble Men Pastor’s Conference:
Jesus invested strategically in men. Every church will be stronger if we follow His example. Noble Warriors invites you to join other pastors and men’s ministry leaders to be encouraged and equipped to follow Jesus’ example.
Iron Sharpens Iron Conference:
Iron Sharpens Iron Conference is a one-day equipping conference for men featuring national keynote speakers, masculine worship, 16 different equipping workshops and resources specific to men. Men register and attend with other men from their church. At the end of the day, men are sharper and better equipped to be God’s Man in every role, relationship and environment!
Ignite Men’s Impact Weekend Conference:
Imagine joining 10,000 men—fathers, sons, brothers, seekers and Christ-followers—coming together to worship God and learn more about the life of true adventure He intends for us. Even more, imagine a two-day event packed full of workshops, exhibits, and fun around the stuff that men love: hunting, fishing, football, motorcycles, racing, extreme sports, and other outdoor activities—featuring some of the leading experts in the world. Welcome to Ignite Men’s Impact Weekend Conference! After years of perfecting our men’s impact weekend, we have landed on a unique format that helps men align their everyday passions with God’s eternal purpose. We are here to take on the everyday challenges that men face—a godless culture, fatherlessness, broken relationships, and the lack of male leadership in the Church.
Men’s Ministry Project:
The Manger Build: A Tool for Building Men:
Before Noble Warriors even existed, our family started a tradition of building a new manger to place in front of our tree every Christmas. The manger became a central part of our celebration and helped us focus on Christ. In 2005, as we were preparing to launch into ministry, I invited other dads to build mangers with their children. Twenty-one dads came out to build mangers and receive coaching on how to lead their families. The manger design and the purpose of The Manger Build have not changed. We’re simply expanding our reach. Our hope and prayer is that The Manger Build will become an annual event for men and churches across the country. Our desire is to see teams of men in local churches use The Manger Build to engage, equip, and encourage men to walk with Christ and lead their families.
Men’s Ministry Resources:
Men’s Fraternity Classic is the original video series authored by Dr. Robert Lewis that helped launch the Authentic Manhood movement.
More than just a rally or a Bible study, Men’s Fraternity provides men with an encouraging process that teaches them how to live lives of authentic manhood as modeled by Jesus Christ and directed by the Word of God. Men’s Fraternity was designed to help men come together and strengthen each other through weekly sessions that combine biblical teaching and small group interaction. These time-tested resources have been used all over the world to equip men to make their pursuit of noble manhood a lifelong priority. Church leaders and lay members are using the series to energize the men of their church and to connect with men in the community. Many individual men have also used the series in their own personal pursuit of authentic manhood.
The series consists of three volumes:
The Quest for Authentic Manhood (24 sessions)
Winning at Work and Home (16 sessions)
The Great Adventure (20 sessions)
33 The Series:
A journey to authentic manhood as modeled by Jesus in His 33 years on earth.
33 THE SERIES OVERVIEW:
A Man and His Design (6 Sessions)
This volume introduces God’s clear design for Authentic Manhood. Each man will discover a Biblical definition of manhood, learn the four “faces” of manhood and also learn how to anticipate and transition through the specific seasons of life.
A Man and His Story (6 Sessions)
This volume provides men with a biblical perspective of their “story”. It equips them to embrace how their past has affected their present and prepares them to deal with whatever the future may hold.
A Man and His Traps (6 Sessions)
This volume introduces a framework and process that challenges and equips men to go below the surface, look deep into their hearts and explore areas that are too easy to ignore.
A Man and His Work (6 Sessions)
This volume reveals how God created man to work. His word instructs men how to engage and actually enjoy their work. It provides insight into some of the ways men can find both their best fit and more fulfillment in their work.
A Man and His Marriage (6 Sessions)
This volume equips men with the insights and skills they need to relate to women. Men will learn how to better understand and meet a woman’s deepest needs, how to resolve conflicts, and how to be a servant leader in a way that will re-energize and bring life into his marriage.
A Man and His Family (6 Sessions)
Coming soon! These six sessions will do more than challenge men to make time for family. Men will be equipped with skills and practical tools that allow them to be intentional dads armed with a strategic game plan to launch their children out into the world.
