The Band of Brothers men’s ministry is made up of several men who have said "Yes" to the call of our King Jesus Christ. We have committed to follow Him in battle, to become His disciples, to become more like Him no matter the cost, and to raise a generation that will do the same. The Band of Brothers is a group of men who have made this covenant with God:
> To be brothers of Christ by total surrender to Jesus Christ (Luke 14:33)
> To covenant together with other Jonathan/David relationships (I Samuel 20).
> To raise a generation that will follow in the ways of the Lord
We are challenging other men to do the same - for we know we cannot fight this battle alone. The Bible states that “As iron sharpens iron, so a man his brother.” (Proverbs 27:17) and “Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not easily broken.” (Ecclesiastes 4:12). We are not alone in the battles that we face. Therefore, we are crying out to other men to step up to the call and embrace their rightful heritage.
This group is open to men 18 years of age and older. We meet every month for special events and/or community outreaches (check the calender under the Upcoming Events tab). All men are invited to join us at our upcoming meetings...our next meeting will be at the church on July 21st at 6:00 PM. For more information on this ministry contact Red Alexander.
I surrender my all to God - no matter the cost - so that I can become more like Jesus Christ - my brother and King. I will join this Band of Brothers, for whose lives, families, and legacies I will fight. Together we can fulfill our mission to glorify God our Father and to raise up a generation that will follow after the Lord.
Gary Alexander - Men's Minister
Gary “Red” Alexander has attended Abundant Life since 1978. He and Jackie Alexander were married in 1995 and have four children.
Red spent the majority of his adult life as a bored Christian. His life seemed to have no real purpose. Then God radically changed his life in 2008. His life now has meaning and purpose. Reaching people with the life giving message of Jesus is the only thing that fulfills him now.
Red wants people to know that Abundant Life is not about religion, fancy suits, or big offerings. It doesn’t matter about your background or what side of the tracks you’re from. He wants everyone to come just as they are and join us as we worship God with sincere expression.
