Proverbs 27:17 says, "As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another." We were never meant to live in isolation. We need constant encouragement, prayer, and often times, rebuke. The Men's Ministry at Coggin Ave. Baptist Church exists to call the men of our church to a higher standard. Young men, senior men, or any age in-between, we implore you to get plugged in with other men at Coggin.
Authentic Manhood (Part 1)
Facilitator: Wayland Peterson
Wednesdays at 6PM, CEC 101
Beginning Sept 7th
We invite men of all ages to join us in learning how to live lives of authentic manhood as modeled by Jesus Christ and directed by the Word of God. The goal of this study is to provide timeless truths and practical insights on how we can live to be the men God intended for us to be. We believe that a true man displays the following characteristics as an imitator of Christ.

Each Friday morning at 7:00AM a group of men gather together in the CCC Fellowship Hall to spend time in the word and prayer. This is an open group and any male who would like to join is invited to come and pray with us. We believe in the power of prayer, and we believe that the only thing Christians have to offer the world that's of any lasting value is the word of God and prayer. So come join us on Friday mornings and let's ask our great God to move in our city.
In Luke 4, Jesus claims to have come with the mission of inaugurating the kingdom of God. He didn't come as a warrior, though that's what many people were expecting from the Messiah. He came as a servant to the outcast, the sinner, and even prisoners. He reads from a portion of Isaiah in the synagogue that says, "The spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor (Luke 4:18-19, cf. Isaiah 61)."
We believe that the mission of the church is an extension of and in service to the mission of Jesus. We recognize that we cannot redeem anyone, but that we can point them to the redeemer. Every Sunday afternoon we send a couple of teams to the local juvenile detention center to preach the Gospel and point them to Jesus.
