Why Men’s Ministry?

As the men of Westminster go so goes Westminster. Throughout Scripture, God commands

men—in the assembly and at home—to lovingly lead. Whether it is the many commands in the

Old Testament Law, the requirements for elders and deacons, or admonishments to husbands,

the godliness of men within the people of God is necessary for the holiness of the whole. In short, God calls us to lead in every sphere he has given us influence: leading ourselves, in our marriages, families, friendships, neighborhoods, schools, and workplaces. Therefore, investing in the men of Westminster is one of the most strategic investments we can make as a church.

This call to lead is all the more pressing given the constant current of our culture that encourages and entices men to immerse themselves in the fleeting pursuits and pleasures of this life, often to the detriment of their personal holiness and ability to lead others. Through growth in our knowledge of God, His Word and edifying biblical fellowship, our goal is to help men fight off these natural and cultural forces.

Here’s how you can take part:

  • Fall class ~ Covenant theology: seeing christ in all the Scriptures

    This Fall, the men of Westminster will be gathering to study the big picture of the Bible through the lens of Covenant Theology. Our class, Covenant Theology: Seeing Christ in All of the Scriptures, will help us to understand God’s Covenants and how they make sense of the story of Scripture. Often when we study our Bible we stick to the well-worn paths of our New Testament, occasionally dipping into the Old Testament to read Psalms and Proverbs. But Christ teaches us that all of the Scriptures point to Him (Luke 24:27). When we begin to understand how God’s covenants all point to Christ, suddenly the entirety of the Bible opens up to us. Our Fall class will help give each man to the tools to see Christ in all of the Scriptures. Our study will begin Thursday September 13th at 7pm, here at Westminster.

  • fall event ~ men's pancake breakfast

    1 Timothy 3:1 says, “the saying is trustworthy: If anyone aspires to the office of overseer (elders),he desires a noble task.” Likewise, for deacons, Paul says in 1 Tim 3:13, “for those who serve well as deacons gain a good standing for themselves and also great confidence in the faith that is in Christ Jesus.” Each fall we as a congregation have the important task of nominating men to serve as elders and deacons, the two offices given by Christ to the church to shepherd her members. 

    On Saturday October 13 from 8:00-10:00am the men of Westminster will be gathering to enjoy breakfast and fellowship together, served up by Doug, Nick, and members of the Session. We will then hear a brief teaching on the offices of elder and deacon. This teaching is intended to both encourage us to aspire to the qualifications of these offices as well as educate us ahead of our annual nomination of officers.
