Deacon Nashun Ricketts
Men’s Ministry Director
Acting Men’s Ministry Director
The Men’s Ministry, led by Deacon Nashun Ricketts and ably assisted by Bro. Andrew Muir and is supported by a very hard-working executive body of Minister Raylan Wynter – Recording Secretary, Deacon Jasen Clarke – Liaison to Deacon Body, Minister Devance Clayton – Promotions & Fundraising Officer, Brother Paul Marshall – Promotions & Fundraising Officer, Deacon Steve Black, and Brother Vernon Lynch.
The department is mandated to groom the next generation of young men while serving the leadership of the Praise Chapel Apostolic Ministry (PCAM).
It is our purpose to define authentic manhood.
In today’s society, the manhood is being challenged more and more. The world has set out to redefine what God has instructed man to be – the leader, the priest, the under-shepherd. There are some new definitions for the male species according to the world’s standards. But we will look at the Biblical dictates of what a real man should be – one who embraces responsibility, rejects passivity, leads confidently and invests in eternity.
The purpose of the Men’s Ministry at PCAM is expressed in Colossians 1:28 “Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus.”
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE ‘COMPLETE IN CHRIST’?
It means to be confident in our manhood while being happy in being a man! We are charged with the responsibility to provide for our families, protect our families, and lead our families to Christ. The man should be the first one to call devotions.
Proverbs 27:17 tells us to be supportive of each other, “As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.” Strong men build up other strong men.
THE TOTAL MAN
God intends for the man to be complete. Balanced. He is to be fully functional spiritually, while totally devoted to his family, and for good measure, a well-adjusted social life. It’s a delicate balance.
Over the years the Men’s Ministry has launched various initiatives including Men’s Bible Study sessions, socials, seminars, rap sessions with young men, concerts, back-to-school treats, etc. With all this going on we are still present in the church, standing in our places to lead worship. Then come Saturday morning we are still showing up to maintain the church property. Catering to the total man.
The main purpose of these many activities is to help the men grow in their relationship with God while stepping up to their responsibilities to both God and their families. We encourage spiritual friendships and spiritual bonding with other godly men. A natural result of this is spiritually stronger men, husbands, fathers, families, and church.
I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one. 1 John 2:14
