Our desire as a Brotherhood is to:
- Fight alongside each other in the battle for freedom
- Create an atmosphere where every man will feel accepted
- Give each man the tools that will help to point him in the right direction
- Provide encouragement in the tough times
We meet on the third Saturday of each month at 7:30 am at a local café or restaurant.

It has been said that each year over 50,000 men in America desert their families,
changing life style and identity. A large percentage of these men are lost to their
families forever. The most common reason given for this is the feeling that they
are not loved for who they are but for what they can give in materialistic items
for those around them-feeling that if the family could find another way to exist,
they would just as soon do without them. Our society serves to intensify this isolation
by its displacement of the importance of the male role as head of the household.
This feeling is further promoted by an ever increasing materialistic society dedicated
to the downward spiral of family apparent plague of divorce. In general tones, we
see a demise of recognizable male roles in our society that only they can fill. A
multitude of men are adrift in a sea of seemingly hopeless meaning.
It is further stated that many of these men are church people, preachers, deacons,
Sunday school teachers, etc.-a circle of men that outward appearances would cause
an assumption of total serenity and peacefulness. Such thought, however, fails to
acknowledge that the church is responsible for the physical as well as the spiritual
needs of men. To neglect either is to fail in the duty of ministry to men. Our
attention should be drawn to these facts, however, and out of that a sense of expediency
to become secularly, as well as spiritually, involved.
The Brotherhood of Faith is about that very challenge - to do something about the
emotions and endless circumstances bringing pressure beyond reason and driving men
to do things they thought they would never do.
Surveys indicate that this generation will be recorded as the most lonely, disassociated,
uncommitted generation in all of American history. The Church is responsible to
respond. For this loneliness, the feeling of “no connection’-having no reason except
to meet monetary needs of people around them-can only be broken by the direct establishment
of a fellowship bond that ties men to one another and to the Church and its many
ministries with purpose and understanding. Indeed, the Brotherhood’s goal is to
reach men outside of the church through this “bond-making,” creating a bridge from
the outside into the very heart of the church. In fact, the Brotherhood is about
creating an atmosphere of fulfillment and acceptance. This program then is about
more than filling time. It is about lives, the very soul, of the men in every local
congregation and community.
