The mission of the Valiant Men’s Ministry is to reach and equip men to be spiritual leaders for their families, church, work and community.

The ministry encourages men to be all that they can be in Christ. Their creed is to be honour bound, purpose driven, faithfully committed and spiritually inspired. Our vision encompasses four main areas. Our aim is to raise up the men of Carmel to know their identity and destiny in Christ, to be the force which carries Carmel forward in relation to the Carmel vision.

We want to create a network of relationships between men at Carmel through the Mentor and Life Groups, so they experience support and security in a way that enables them to function effectively as leaders.

We also strive to encourage men to develop in Christ-like character so that they commend Christ in the community and provide the covering Carmel’s Exceptional Women need to be everything God has prepared for them.

And finally, our hope is to provide as many compelling men’s growth and discipleship opportunities as possible so that it sustains and grows the body of men at Carmel into a dynamic band of brothers.

Recognising that men need to gather around both spiritual and social occasions, the Valiant Men’s Ministry helps to facilitate those occasions, in a ‘men only’ environment. We provide regular mentoring to equip men in the everyday, annual conferences with great food and fellowship to help them develop in Christ-likeness, and we join together on regular Saturday mornings for a hearty breakfast and to hear the Word of God. Men also gather for a weekend away every other year, where they can set aside time to fellowship with other men and to hear from God.
