Purpose of the Ministry
To give God all the glory as we encourage one another, through the word of God and by following the footsteps of Jesus, both inside and outside of the church walls.
Ministry Skills and Commitments
The Men’s Ministry of Riceville is organized to carry out the mission, vision, goals and objectives of the church through its ministry activities to the men of Riceville and the community. Men will be provided the opportunities to gather to learn from God’s Word and from each other about how to fulfill God’s purpose for their lives.
Ministry Activities and Functions
As a part of our bi-monthly meetings, we encourage different men of the Ministry to bring a short scripture based lesson, keeping with God word to “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15 KJV); We extend the fellowship of brotherhood by participating in joint Men’s Ministry meetings with other churches in the greater Houston community; “Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend” (Psalms 27:17 KJV); We welcome and embrace all new men to Riceville with open arms “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new“ (2 Corinthians 5:7 KJV); We take part in community evangelizing by reaching out to those who are less fortunate and spreading the good news of Jesus; “And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me” (John 12:32 KJV); We sponsor city wide Men’s Conference’s where hundreds of men from all walks of life come together in praise and worship. “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!”(Psalms 133:1 KJV)
Frequency of Service
The Men’s Ministry meetings convene for one (1)-hour (7-8pm) on the 2nd and 4th Monday of each calendar month. Meetings are held in the auxiliary room of the Riceville main campus.
