The Vision, Mission, & Name

The Vision

Noble Warriors’ vision is to see all men walk with Christ and lead their families. Here’s why…

There is no more potent force than a man who has been with Christ.

When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled,ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus. Acts 4:13

Godly families are led by men who humbly put Christ first in their lives.

Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ. 1Corinthians 11:1

The Mission

Noble Warriors serves local churches by helping them reach and build men. Here’s how… 

Engage – We get the church’s attention by asking, “How are your men really doing? Are they walking with Christ? Growing in Faith? Leading their families? We ask questions and present challenges that raise the interest and awareness of local churches concerning men’s discipleship.

Equip – We offer the church practical, hands on help with information, resources, ideas, training, coaching and consulting. Equipping may take the form of launching Men’s Fraternity groups, hosting a regional Iron Sharpens Iron conference, providing men’s ministry leadership training, championing a powerful movie like Courageous, visiting with pastors personally or coaching a men’s ministry leadership team.

Encourage – We cheer for local churches as men are discipled. Our busy, distracting culture makes men’s discipleship especially challenging. So, Noble Warriors stands with pastors and ministry leaders who are investing in men and celebrate as God changes men, marriages, families, churches and communities for His glory.

Contact us at office@noblewarriors.org or give us a call (804-447-1720) to see how you and your church can be part of this movement.


The Name

Noble – Having or displaying qualities of high moral character, as honor, generosity or courage. (Webster’s II)

But the noble man makes noble plans, and by noble deeds he stands. Isaiah 32:8

Warrior – One engaged or experienced in battle. (Webster’s II)

Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are sons born in one’s youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. Ps. 127:4-5a.

Warrior was the first of the two words to take its place. Because I have three sons (and a daughter), Psalm 127:4-5 is significant to me. The visual image of my children as the arrows that I, the warrior, have available in battle is incredible. I see that the arrows must be straight and well made in order to be effective, and that I must be a capable and prepared warrior in order to prevail against the enemy. The imagery is thought provoking and humbling. I have a great responsibility, all men do.

It took several weeks to settle on the word Noble, but when I found Isaiah 32:8 the deal was sealed. The noble man makes noble plans and by noble deeds he stands. In many ways, the concept of nobility is gone from our culture. Unfortunately, short cuts and quick fixes are the accepted norm. Rarely do we see people who are willing to invest time, energy and resources in doing the right thing and waiting for long term rewards. Although I have not found the word noble used to describe Christ in the scriptures, I believe it is fitting. I want to be someone who thinks and acts nobly, like Christ.

The Arrow

Think of your children as arrows that you will some day send off into the world. In order to be effective, they must be straight and sharp. They won’t get that way themselves. Men must set the standard and lead them.
