There were so many young boys in my neighborhood that were fatherless so, I started a young men bible study at my home. Throughout discussing the bible and personal growth in them I learned that these young boys didn’t have a positive male role model on their lives. This fellowship began to grow and was taken to ST. James Christian church and began to expand even more. This began from Boys to Men to M.E.N.(Men Empowering Nations).
Our vision is to help young men between the ages of 8 through 18 develop their faith in God through fellowship, education, and leadership development.
Our Vision is to assist them in becoming leaders and productive citizens.
Learning to seek understanding and stand on the Word of God when things do not go as planned.
Spreading the message of Jesus Christ as we fellowship with others.
