Where God Builds People
Mount Pisgah Men's Ministry is designed to build men's faith and a solid relationship with Christ. We engage men in activities and provide them resources to bring them closer to God and to be positive influences in their homes, their places of work, their community, and in church. Our goals within the ministry is to develop each member to be an effective man and leader within his home & the church, to determine their purpose in life by understanding God's purpose for them; to provide help to Mt. Pisgah Missionary Baptist Church and to develop young men spiritually as they grow into maturity.
Membership is for those between the ages of 30 to 50. The focus is for spiritual growth and Christians helping others seek everlasting spiritual nourishment. Unite with other ministries and help provide goods or services to needy community-based organizations such as the Gilead House.
