“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works,
which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10 (NIV)
Alliance Men hold events in varying sizes throughout the year and information about these events can be found in the Events section of the website. This is a great way for men to come and see what Alliance Men is all about.
Imagine 2000 men focused on the same vision with the same mission. Imagine for a moment a natural disaster within the Great Lakes District and yet in a moments notice 2000 men could be called to action. Imagine for a moment a missionary overseas that has some special need and with a click of a button 2000 men could rise to the occasion. Imagine for a moment a pastor in one of our churches with a burden and 2000 men dropping to their knees in prayer. Just imagine what 2000 focused Christian men could do.
Alliance Men are all about Jesus, and our ultimate mission is to fulfill His final
request on this earth, Jesus said “All authority in heaven and on earth has been
given to me. Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the
name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to
obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the
very end of the age”. This is known as the, The Great Commission. We are men of
action. But we also know that completing our mission successfully requires a
healthy blend of “being” and “doing.”
Devoting ourselves to prayer and immersion in His Word radically transforms us.
It also increases our hunger to go deeper in our relationship, to know Him as
our Savior, Sanctifier, Healer, and Coming King.
Motivated by our love for Jesus, we are then compelled to serve Him. We read in
Ephesians 2:10 that “We are God’s workmanship created in Christ Jesus to do
good works which God has prepared in advance for us to do”. We have been
created to do good works.
We, the Great Lakes District Alliance Men, believe that the local church is the
most appropriate forum for building and investing in men of God. Therefore, the
mission of the Great Lakes District Alliance Men is to focus our efforts and
resources into developing dynamic, healthy men’s ministries, within each church
in our district, which focuses on discipleship and outreach.
This mission will be accomplished by building a relationship with one man from
each church in the Great Lakes District who has a passion for men’s ministry. Then
assisting that man to build a life changing, active men’s ministry in his church
which focuses on building and equipping disciples. This is BEING.
Then out of these churches will flow men who are committed to doing the good
works which they have been created to do and which God has prepared in
advance for them to do. Whether that be in their own community or across the
world. This is DOING.
