Ministry is About Changed Lives

Minute with Mike / January 2020 Ministry is about changed lives. A transformed life is hard to measure BUT impossible to refute. One of our challenges is that when men participate in our events, we don’t always see or even hear about decisions and/or transformations that take place. We delight in the reports that do...

Workshop Highlight 2019: Randall Nichols, Echo Orphancare Partners

It’s been a ten year journey. One that has revealed to Randall Nichols that the Church has the heart to answer the call of caring for ‘the least of these’, but just lacks the resources. That is where Echo Orphancare Partners fill in the gap. Randall has served in ministry for 23 years, mostly as a...

Join Me for the National Training on Ministry to Men!

Click HERE to view video. “Dad, everything isn’t about men’s discipleship.” That’s what Hannah, my teenage daughter says to me when I mention the connection between something I’ve noticed and my calling to help churches disciple men.

Who Am I?

It’s a question that haunts everyone at some point. I just filled a box with goodies to mail to a college student, the daughter of some missionaries we know. These kids are often called ‘third culture’ kids. Many were born in the US to American parents. They have one foot in American culture, but they...

Keynote Highlight 2019: Bobby Scott, Community of Faith Bible Church

Kicking and screaming… that’s how Bobby Scott entered the ministry. He initially refused to accept this calling God placed on his heart, claiming that there must be 100 million people better suited for the Gospel ministry. But, thankfully, Jesus wouldn’t let him say “no.” “So I humbly accepted His call to ministry and served in...
