Most men don’t recognize their importance in the home, the church, and society. Because they underestimate the impact they can have, they often settle for counterfeit models of manhood. Two popular counterfeit models in our culture are the Macho-man and the Apathetic-man. The Macho-man (think toxic masculinity) thinks masculinity is about power and success; the Apathetic-man thinks the “I-don’t-really-care” attitude is the ideal. Both of these are perversions of authentic manhood.

The answer isn’t to try to be more macho or to care less, the answer is to be more like Jesus, who modeled perfect manhood. He was the perfect blend of strength, maturity, compassion, wisdom, will and submission. He thought clearly and loved deeply. He took initiative and sacrificially took responsibility for those God entrusted to his care. This is the kind of men we strive to be at OCF.

In order to help one another become this kind of man, the Men’s Ministry at OCF offers large group get-togethers (for making initial connections), small groups (for instruction, discussion and growth), and one-on-one discipleship (for accountability and encouragement).
