G(Godly) - MEN

The AFCC Men Fellowship

WE ARE MEETING on SATURDAYS @  10:00am in the Hope Activity Center or will  send notification via email/text for any changes in time or location. 

In April of 2010 while the AFCC was searching for new leadership, God stepped forward as He always does and provided a Pastor with a clear vision that an essential ingredient was missing in the foundational building blocks in His Church.

Pastor Doug knew in his walk with GOD that in the Kingdom certain organization was required.

A strong family demands a Godly man at its head and a community requires those same Godly men to be involved in its leadership. Intuitively the only source to produce these Godly leaders is from the crucible of GOD's training center "The Church"

And the Men's Ministry was established to supply these Godly Men and was appropriately called "G-MEN

I want to hesitate here for just a moment and raise our hands in praise to GOD in heaven and this is crucial and critical to this witness.

19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19 KJV

From the G-Men GOD produced to His Glory so many things that must be given praise not least of which were Husbands and Fathers to make strong homes and families. Lay ministers in the church who became competent leaders on the Executive Leadership Team (ELT) and men able and willing to give the sermon message any Sunday that a substitute was required in the pulpit.

As if this wouldn't be enough to praise but then God showed off and dazzled us with the " Hope Activity Center" where He brought forward the G-Men leadership to organize the congregation and once again "….. supply all our need…."

Without the financing or particular building and construction skills necessary to accomplish any of this the G-men began to pray for this vision and efficiently and effectively God produced not only the financing but:

  • Architectural drawings- Rusty Muyuela (volunteer)
  • Sitework and Concrete - Chuck Moe (Ministry of Hard Hats for Christ)
  • Carpentry and management - Joe Newton (Ministry of Hard Hats for Christ)
  • Mechanical System - Juliano Wilson ( Duramax )

As we are praising God and shouting from the mountain top the glorious works of His hands I want to bring us back to the fact that God used the congregation of AFCC and the leadership of its G-Men for all of this work. So much more can be said from this but the importance of men that the Pastor saw cannot be over stated. All men of the church are welcome to Join us!

Passage For Everyday

Luke 17:7-10:

7 “When a servant comes in from plowing or taking care of sheep, does his master say, ‘Come in and eat with me’? 8 No, he says, ‘Prepare my meal, put on your apron, and serve me while I eat. Then you can eat later.’ 9 And does the master thank the servant for doing what he was told to do? Of course not. 10 In the same way, when you obey me you should say, ‘We are unworthy servants who have simply done our duty.’”
