THE FIVE-FOLD MINISTRY FRAMEWORK OF PEMEM
- We seek to encourage growth in knowledge and intimate relationship with God through intentional spiritual discipleship.
- To bring about a greater measure of unity and spirit of harmony in the body of Christ, where members are united in a common effort for the good of the entire body.
Family Life: To provide a basis for a healthy fellowship among all the men in the Church by creating a ministry that is not in competition with any other ministry but cooperating with all, inspiring its members to be active and responsible, at home, in the local church and in the community. We aim at becoming positive icons in society
- To become passionate ministers of Jesus’ movement under the power of the Holy Spirit. (Effectiveness and Impact on Life).
- To witness to the presence and the power of God in the world today through the message of the Gospel for the total man, and by this, reach men (and women) for Christ, especially those having a similar social, cultural or business interest as the witness.
- Modeling Christ-likeness in Humility, Wisdom, Growth, Integrity, and development in the workplace.
- Exercising cutting-edge professionalism in the spirit of excellence devoid of mediocrity and apathy.
In most cultures of the world, men are perceived to the repositories of knowledge and wisdom. This perception must be translated into reality, by ensuring that men become studious and approach issues with acuity and precision; and by extension encourage the younger generation to be studious.
