Herb Reese is a friend and men’s ministry colleague in Colorado. He is a former pastor who launched New Commandment Men’s Ministries to help churches launch and sustain teams of men to meet long term care needs for people in the church and community.
A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. John 13:34
I would love to see more churches in Virginia launch New Commandment teams.
Check out an e-book by Herb, The One Amazing Thing God Wants to Do With Men, here.
Below are a few compelling quotes from the book:
…as our culture has strayed from a biblical world view, we have lost the ability to define who and what a man is.
If men aren’t even interested in marriage, let alone sacrificing for a wife and kids, then they certainly aren’t going to sacrifice for others in their community.
Before we can do the good God wants us to do, we have to deal with the evil Satan has already done in us, with us, and through us.
A Christian man is responsible for making sure he is self supporting and not a burden on others.
Just as Jesus was supported by women of means (Luke 8:1-3), so God has blessed my wife with a wonderful career that enables me to focus on men’s ministry.
