PointMan Ministries Calling & History

One powerful plea… Help, LORD, for the godly man ceases! Psalm 12:1a.
Two penetrating questions… Who can find a faithful man? Prov. 20:6b; Who can find a virtuous woman? Prov. 31:10a

HistoryPointMan Ministries began in response to the need for men’s ministry and leadership in the tri-state area. Building on existing relationships, the initial purpose was to bring a diverse group of men together in Christian unity through a men’s conference. However it immediately became evident that God’s purpose included more than hosting ministry events. The plan included bridging the gap between a man’s temporary spiritual awakening at events and lasting change through discipleship. It also included providing opportunities for men of all cultures and denominations to come together for Biblical unity, to encourage the body of Christ and equip men for Spiritual leadership in the home, church, workplace and community. We are endeavoring to do this by working through the local church.

2012 | PointMan Ministries officially launched a missional strategy to engage men, encourage families, and equip churches for a movement of men to the ends of the earth.

  • The Regional Team is a group of volunteers who pray for PointMan Ministries through a designated time of prayer.

PointMan Ministries Ministry Model
  • Our strategy is to be a regional and national ministry to and through men that serves, resources, and equips families, churches, and other organizations for ministry to men and through men with others in mind.
  • We collaborate with a network of likeminded ministries to influence a movement of men who step up as leaders in their homes, churches, and communities.
  • We facilitate conferences and retreats for men, women, families and churches, and other faith-based organizations on a variety of subjects pertaining to biblical manhood, true womanhood, marriage and family, and the church.
  • We wholeheartedly embrace wives, mothers, and daughters for true womanhood and encourage their influence through our Renewing the Heart affiliate ministry and through their Woman2Woman Leadership Training program. They also provide resources and events to rally women together in prayer for a movement of men.
PointMan Ministries Growth Strategy

  • Continue an ongoing development of regional men’s ministry strategies with likeminded partners in the various regions we serve and to establish relationships with pastors and churches by offering regional men’s conferences, pastor’s luncheons, etc.
  • Continue developing partnerships with Fellowship of Christian Athletes, National Coalition of Ministries to Men, Iron Sharpens Iron Network, Man in the Mirror, Fatherhood CoMission, and others as the Lord leads.
