What are we about
The UBC men’s ministry is a platform creating the opportunity for the men of the church to come together in a non-threatening environment, where we can build relationships, support and encourage one another on our Christian journey and fellowship together with the ultimate goal of bringing glory to God.
What do we believe
It is our desire to see a brotherhood of men raised up in this place, a group of men who would take their rightful place as leaders in our homes, in our church and in our community. The Bible teaches that a man has to be the head of his home, and that men should take positions of responsibility in the church, without becoming tyrants, and showing love and respect for those within their care. Children need the influence of their father, or at least a persuasive male adult authority figure, to grow up into good citizens. They also need the example of male leaders in the church, otherwise they will drift away at the age of about 15 when they perceive that church is some kind of women and children’s thing. Despite the degradation that we have seen during the last half of the 20th century, there is hope for believing families that have become dysfunctional because of their exposure to the world. As long as they have access to the Bible, they have the means to see their relationships restored.

“But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.”
