Men In Mission

"To Encourge Men to be Disciples of Christ, Thereby Empowering us to Assist Those in Need, Share the love Christ with all, by Building Disciples, Growing in faith and Serving in Jesus' Name.

The Men In Mission at St. Philip Evangelical Lutheran Church was started as a Brotherhood of civic minded men, who came together to promote God's word and to spread the Gospel. The men committed to leadership by example and in accordance James 1:25, "But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does". And, James 2:17, "Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works is dead."
