Men’s Ministries: EquipMENt
At New Hope Church we want to produce men who are “oaks of righteousness” (Isaiah 61:3), who lead their church and home with conviction, integrity, purity and strength. We want to build men who are Cross-centered in everything they do. Men who reject passivity and embrace missionality. As the Apostle Paul said: “But as for you, O man of God…pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, steadfastness, gentleness. Fight the good fight of the faith” (1 Timothy 6:11-12).
