Have you ever stopped to consider the people that God has used to make a positive difference in your world? Most of us can identify at least one or two people whom God has used to truly make an impact through their presence in our lives. God did not design us to go through this life alone. Proverbs 27:17 says, “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another” (NIV). No one better understood this dynamic than Jesus when he made himself a servant and walked in a very intentional relationship with a few men. Mark 10:45 says, “For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many.” The result was a world radically changed. You too can change your world by following the example of Jesus and taking steps to intentionally walk with other men whom God has purposefully placed in your life. We know we are better together and that God builds his Kingdom through intentional relationships.
Jesus extended an invitation to a few men to come and walk with Him and in doing so demonstrated what relationship with the Father looked like. He took those who responded—who wanted to walk with Him—and became very intentional about pouring into their lives. You already have some people in your life who want to walk with you. We simply want to give you some tools to make it easy to pour into them in ways that will change both their lives and yours.
In a “Man to Man” Small Group, you will have the opportunity to identify three or four men in your sphere of influence and invite them to walk together with you for a semester.
“Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up! …Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken. Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 (NIV)
Come join us and change your world, one man at a time!
