“The church should be a leadership locus.” The church has a responsibility to develop leaders for the world (Geiger and Peck, Designed to Lead). This needs to become CBC’s culture.
“The church is the primary means through which God accomplishes His plan in the world (cf. Eph 3:10). It is His ordained instrument for calling the lost to Himself and the context into which He sanctifies those who are born into His family. Therefore God demands a commitment to the church from everyone who claims to know Him” (Mack and Swavely, Life in the Father’s house).
Men’s discipleship program (or Christian Men of Service) will be a better platform where we can create this culture.
To disciple Christian men for Christian service to impact lives for Christ.
