  • Men's Ministry

    The Men's Ministry is based on biblical principles, many of which were gleaned from 2 Samuel 23:8-25. It was established at Detroit World Outreach in 1999 at the urging of the Holy Spirit.

    The Men's Ministry was designed to provide a vehicle for ministry to men in the Body of Christ to develop undeniable manifestation of personal purpose, priorities and kingdom power through development in biblical courage, chivalry, ability and substance. The underlying principles were designed to strengthen the man in his walk with Christ, strengthen his family and thereby ultimately strengthen the local church.

    • A roadmap to increasing commitment and growth in the Christ through the 12 principles of the Men's Ministry
