I count August 1, 2005 as the beginning of my full-time efforts to help churches ENGAGE, EQUIP & ENCOURAGE men. So, we have just launched into our 8th year. In that time God has shaped and grown this ministry to impact thousands of men and hundreds of churches in central Virginia. He’s also allowed us to have a voice in the movement through several national organizations and by sharing the story of Noble Warriors with like-minded men across the country.
I’m amazed and humbled quite honestly, by what God has already done in and through Noble Warriors. I’m even more excited about what the future holds as we leverage our current position for broader ministry. God has shown us much favor and I believe there is much greater impact and influence ahead. However, every warrior in battle must be supplied and supported in order to accomplish the mission.
Money is an uncomfortable subject. It shouldn’t be, but it is. Here’s the bottom line… God provides for this work. My trust and faith is in Him. But He does so primarily through ministry partners who invest personally in the work. There are well over 100 regular partners who give first to their churches, then make an additional investment in Noble Warriors. God calls some to give, walking in partnership with me and my family as we serve.
Our ministry and budget year start on September 1st. Our budget for FY 2013 is growing as we increase our ministry breadth and depth. In order to host our first ISI conference in Roanoke and do a better job of coaching churches in men’s discipleship strategies, we’re adding a Church Relations Specialist position and administrative support.
Our ministry is growing wider and deeper. Would you prayerfully consider locking arms with us as a partner? Here are several ways you can help:
