The Foundry Today has been developed out of a passion to see Ministry with Men flourish in the Manawatu, New Zealand.
Men represent only 39% of Church attendance in NZ churches today according to The 2001 NZ Church Life Survey. Yet men are vital for the health of the church. “In America, 3500 churches will close their doors this year. In every one of those churches the men [will have} left first” (David Murrow, Promise Keepers Leave No Man Behind Auckland Event 2008).
Mothers,wives and single woman are all united in their desire to see the men in their lives in a place where they can grow to be more Christlike – the church.
So what is Ministry With Men?
- Calling and equipping men for biblical manhood
- Includes every man in your church
- Involves men only activities
- Takes 3 to 5 years to build
- Its a BIG deal
The Foundry Today is a tool for Ministry with Men groups to share events, knowledge and resources, locally to enable growth in Christ for the benefit of Kingdom, Family and Church. Right here in Manawatu.
