"Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up... Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken"
- Ecc. 4:9-10 (NIV)
In today's society, men face challenges on a daily basis to stand strong and follow through on key areas that they are responsible for. We can easily make the mistake to think that we need to stand and make it on our own.
The Bible's wisdom however, teaches exactly the opposite and reminds us that we need each other to stand strong and be effective in what we set out to achieve. The Men's Ministry at ARCF exists to embody this bond of fellowship and support so that the men in our church and community can connect together.
As we journey together in building fellowship and support, our heart is also to see the men in our congregation grow in their love, knowledge and understanding of their Heavenly Father - the outflow of which will see men grow stronger in their faith and godly values.
Jesus invites us to love God with all of our heart, our soul and our strength, and second to that - love our neighbor as we love ourselves. Therefore the third focus of our ministry is to encourage and provide opportunities for our men to serve their community through physical and other acts of kindness.
