The objective of Men’s Department is to disciple and equip the men of CBC in their roles as men of God, whether married, single, older and younger. We seek to provide a place for modelling the life of Christ to men. We seek to do this through teaching, fellowship, relevant activities and providing opportunity for fostering spiritual friendships and developing disciple relationships, so that men can grow in the conformity to Christ, specifically in their roles as men.
The rationale for this is simple: men have been given the key role in the Body of Christ. All believing men of the church, from pastoral to any believing man in the sphere, have the responsibility to walk with Christ in obedience and grow in conformity to his image. Men, married or single, often live isolated from the active fellowship of other Christian men. Proverbs 27.17 says, “Iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.” The principle given here is that men need the encouragement, teaching, fellowship, and modelling of the Christian life from other men.
