The Men’s Ministry of New Jerusalem Church of God In Christ is designed to assist in the implementation of the overall mission of our church by focusing on training and developing men to become spiritually matured Disciples of Christ.
It is the intent of this ministry to nurture and teach Godly principles and doctrines which are based on holiness so that every man can meet the challenge which is presented in Romans “12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. 12: 2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”

Deacons are “servants” that serve with both ―head and ―hands. Those recognized as Deacons are typically chosen to occupy positions of authority in the church, and through this role they relieve the pastor and elders of any responsibilities that would keep them from fulfilling their assignment (Acts 6:2-4). This ministry demands a high level of commitment, maturity and dedication (1 Timothy 3:8-13). Training is conducted throughout the year and plans are discussed on how to better carry out various responsibilities (i.e. offering collections, assisting in church ordinances, security, etc.).
Young Men’s Christian Council

Teaching the importance of building a personal relationship with Jesus.
Enabling them to understand and recognize who Jesus is, and what it is to live for Him only.
Teaching them to walk in truth and obedience to the Bible
Developing Christian discipleship and brotherhood that inspires men to their rightful place in God, family and church.
Promoting self-betterment along with spiritual fulfillment in their quest to be all God has destined them to be.
Men Mentoring Men
Men Mentoring Men is a mentoring program that builds self-esteem and moral values in a Bible-based setting. To teach young boys how to be young men in today’s society. We believe as it says in Proverbs 22: 6; “Train up a child in the way it should go and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” Our purpose with the Rites of Passage Program is to uplift and educate our youth with Godly principles.
