Igniting the Hearts of Men for Christ
The purpose of Men's Ministry through NCBM is to encourage and equip churches to effectively reach, minister to, and activate men. We believe that reaching men is about relationships, and encourage the development of trusting relationships through meaningful shared experiences that may include fellowship, study, and missions participation. We encourage churches to implement the four cornerstones of men’s ministry:
- Evangelize Men to Salvation (outreach and fellowship)
- Establish Men to Spiritual Maturity (discipleship)
- Equip Men for Ministry (service within the body of the church)
- Extend Men on Mission (local, state, national, and international missions)
We believe that the pastor is key in the development and maintenance of an effective ministry to men, and that the ministry should support his overall vision for the church. We feel that each men’s ministry also needs a “champion” – someone who has a passion to see the ministry succeed – as well as a core leadership team to serve alongside him.

Our desire at NC Baptist Men is to see men and families reached for Christ. We want to help the men of our churches take up the challenge of living a Christ-filled life in all areas of their lives - home, work, and church. Too often, Church Men's groups focus more on "Ministry By Men" and not enough on "Ministry To Men". Both are important.
The pages on this site contain information on Men's Ministry resources and events. Allow us to be of service to you as you plan your strategy for effectively reaching men in your church.
