The Problem is that without the Body of Christ and its Leaders we will;
Not able to mature in our faith.
We will remain children in the faith.
We’ll be tossed to and fro by the waves of life.
We’ll be swayed by the philosophies of our world. / / (See, Ephesians 4:1-7, 11-16)
“By yourself you’re unprotected. With a friend you can face the worst. Can you round up a third? A three-stranded rope isn’t easily snapped.” - Ecclesiastes 4:12 MSG
Men’s & Women’s Ministry’s Mission Statement
“Most Christians are stunted in their growth because they only have carnal and worldly fellowship instead of curating and cultivating spiritual friendships. That’s why Ekko has developed a men’s and women’s ministry, so that men and women can belong and become who they were meant to be.”
How’s your relationship with God?
What’s getting in the way of my worship and union with God?
What are we doing to get stronger and more mature in Christ?
How Do I Know at the End of the Year that My Ministry was Successful?
Some things that will clearly define what we’re looking for in this ministry;
“That was so much fun.”
“I feel less alone.”
“I feel more confident and stronger about my walk with Christ.”
“I feel closer to God.”
“I care more about the hurting, the lonely, the marginalized.”
“I am more disciplined in spiritual habits.”
“I’m less impressed with the world’s ways and values. I’ve grown in my respect for the Kingdom of God.”
“I love my church. I need my church. I want my church.”
“I love serving.”
“I joined something in Ekko (advance, leading ortho, more involvement in Ekklesia, recess, mji)” (less silo and more love for the body)
