From the Bishop

Bishop ReevesThe Formation of a Kingdom Man

 

A Kingdom man is a man who visibly demonstrates the comprehensive rule of God underneath the Lordship of Jesus Christ in every area of his life. We have been teaching over the last few weeks the importance of a Kingdom relationship as both a man and a woman. In today's society it is imperative the Kingdom man assume his role as a Godly role model and leader of his home.

 

Dr. Tony Evans wrote: When a kingdom man steps out his door each day, heaven, earth, and hell take notice. When he protects the woman under his care, she can do little to resist him. His children look to him with confidence. Other men look to him as someone to emulate. His church calls on him for strength and leadership. He is a preserver of culture and a champion of society to keep out evil and usher in good. A kingdom man understands that God never said a godly life would be easy; He just said it would be worth it.

 

As you can see the world needs more kingdom men and we have set off this year to become not only kingdom men but also Kingmakers. The new name and purpose of our men's ministry is to be kingmakers. We endeavor to develop kingdom men in every man regardless of age, within our sphere of influence. As kingdom men we will focus on the purpose of God for our lives and teach our young men how to find their calling and walk in their divine destiny.

 

As you watch all of the events of today unfold it is evident in the cry of mothers and children all over our society the need for a kingdom man to take his appointed place. You can hear in the chaos in Baltimore, Washington DC, and Northern VA, the call coming from our communities for Godly men to take their kingdom place. This cry is all over America and it is getting louder each day. Now is the time for men to take back the authority given to us by God and stolen by Satan. As a kingdom man, there is more to you than you know, and we here at The Life have taken up the mantel to teach, train and develop every man into a KINGMAKER.

MARRIAGE MENTORING MINISTRY


MARRIAGE MADE EASY

 

The Life Marriage Mentoring Ministry was formed as an additional enhancement to the ministry for married couples.  The vision for the ministry is to strengthen the foundation of marriage by empowering couples and building of relationships through mentoring.  The purpose of the ministry is to walk alongside couples with the goal to enhance and improve the quality of marriages.

 

The mentor couples are not counselors, but guides into this adventure called marriage.  The couples range from those married for a few years with small children; to mid-life couples raising teenagers; and finally more seasoned couples enjoying their empty nests.  Longevity no longer ensures the "until death we do part." All couples experience difficult times in their relationships, and having someone who can help through the rough patches of life and marriage is the basis for the mentoring ministry.  We know that the thief (Satan) comes to steal, kill and destroy (John 10:10), and that includes our marriages.  If Satan can chip away the body of Christ, by destroying marriages and families, he rejoices and has the victory.  We have to defeat Satan by any means necessary.  Spouses remember a few basic scriptures:

  • Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord (NIV, Ephesians 5:22)
  • Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her (NIV, Ephesians 5:25).
  • In your anger do not sin: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry. (NIV, Ephesians 4:26).

Corporate America offers mentoring programs to assist new employees to become successful members of the workforce.  At the workplace, each fresh-faced employee is assigned another seasoned employee who can help the individual to make his or her way through the snares of the business world.  We at the Life want to embrace the mentoring aspect of Corporate America, but with the focus on marriage and the family as a whole unit.  When couples experience life difficulties, negative issues flow downward to the children; which creates added pressures for the entire family.

 

As previously stated, the mentors are not counselors, but we want to put the counseling ministry out of business by stepping in to assist couples before problems escalate to a more serious level.  Mentors are bound by a requirement to ensure confidentially of mentees.  The ultimate goal of the ministry is to continue to build relationships while ensuring that Christ is at the center. 

 

God Bless,

The Life Marriage Mentors


 

HEALTH MINISTRY


HUNGER
May Health Ministry Session

 

For the next few months, the Health Ministry will discuss hunger. By definition, hunger is "a strong desire or need for food" or "a strong desire or craving".  Hunger is a gift from God and a sign of good health. It is a driving force that moves us from a place of lack to a place of fulfillment. In the natural, we get hungry by not eating.  In the Kingdom, we get hungry by eating. The question for both natural and spiritual hunger is, "how do we satisfy our hunger?"

 

Hunger series topics include:

  • The gift of hunger
  • Hunger vs. cravings: How food cravings work
  • Healthy ways to satisfy your hunger
  • A renewed mind: the key to a healthy relationship with food

"Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness, for they shall be filled." (Matt. 5:6) Join us as we address healthy ways to satisfy your physical hunger and how to stimulate and feed spiritual hunger. Be in Health in 2015!

 

 

Health Ministry Meeting

 

Date: Saturday, June 20, 2015

Time: 10am

Location: The Life

Speaker: Min. Kim Johnson, MD 

 

 

 

MARRIED FOR LIFE


There is nothing like enjoying a rich satisfying and joyous marriage! Does that mean that you won't encounter some ups and downs? Absolutely not! But it does mean that you and your spouse can learned tools that can empower the two of you to experience a great marriage that will endure any ups and downs that may come your way and still come out on the other side stronger and more in love than ever.

 

God has set us up for success in our marriages if we are wiling to be obedient to do what He tells us to do from His Word. Married for Life is a ministry designed to encourage, equip, educate and enrich marriages for success! It is all about us coming together as a community of believing Christian couples to grow and support each other while having fun doing it. I believe it is possible to create your own "Happily Ever After" by understanding and nurturing the uniqueness of what the two of you as a couple have together.

 

Married for Life Ministry is offers the right building blocks to motivate you in developing your best marriage yet! Joining in the fun activities, the conversations, the fellowships, and the learning studies to do just that.  My husband and I look forward to meeting each of you and to hopefully minister and inspire you to embrace all that God has for you and your spouse to love and celebrate in this thing called MARRIAGE!

KINGMAKERS MEN'S MINISTRY


The Kingmakers Ministry is made up of The Men of The Life Church 15 years of age and older. We are a group of spirit-filled energetic men that encourage one another through the love of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.


Our Ministry is open to all men so please engage with us as we train, pray and worship. We mentor each other under the guidance of Bishop Reeves and Pastor Jones to men in every age or stage in life. Prov. 27:17 tell us "As Iron sharpens Iron, so one man sharpens another."

The fight is real so join our network of men that is empowered by The Kingdom thinking men.

We are currently teaching through Tony Evan's book "The Kingdom Man"


We believe in the fact that through Jesus we come unto the Father. A strong Godly man at home, a "Kingmaker", will bring and keep his family in line with God's will. Joshua 24:15 says....But as for me and my house we will worship The Lord.
