About

The mission of this site about one-on-one men’s ministry

Is about men’s ministry in “real life.” Written to mature men who want to help younger men mature in all aspects of life. It is life on life application.

Some of the posts will explain more about the philosophy. Others will illustrate how to practice it.

The focus is not on any sect or denomination of any organized religion. However, the author is an ardent follower of Jesus Christ and sees Jesus as the ultimate model of men’s ministry.

Men can and should minister to women, and women can and should minister to men. However, the bond of matching gender facilitates ministry. Being of the same sex also eliminates many possible accusations of sexual harassment or worse.
