Support Men of Valor

With your support, in places around the world where there is little or no outreach or ministry to men, MOV jump starts men’s discipleship through men’s conferences and the launching of men’s discipleship. Men are encouraged and inspired through MOV’s teaching about biblical manhood, God’s standard in every aspect of their lives, and acting on who they are as God sees them – a mighty man of valor!

OUR FUNDS

Where Most Needed

Where Most Needed and undesignated gifts are used to cover a variety of expenses involved in the day-to-day running of the ministry. We also use monies from this fund to cover conference expenses that may not be covered from other sources. These funds are not used for salaries; all members of Men of Valor are volunteers.

Your gift to Where Needed Most ensures that we have the funds to continue being a vital catalyst and support to church leaders to pursue and disciple men, and to the men, churched and unchurched, who desperately need to know who they are in Christ and taught to live it out.

URGENT: Bibles Needed Right Now for Kasungu and Blantyre, Malawi

While we start our ministry in each new region with a conference, the long-term goal is ongoing discipleship. Pastors and lay leaders who attend the conferences begin men’s activities and start men’s discipleship groups, multiplying the ministry.  In Kasungu, Malawi, pastors and men who launched men’s discipleship after our conference in April 2017 have seen their groups expand and new groups start. Our team lead reported: In Kasungu we have 597 new believers, and these men have come to Christ through M.O.V since 2017!” They need 180 more Bibles right now for some of the new believers.

In Blantyre, a conference was held with 150 men in February 2019.  “Many of the churches have adopted the teaching of Men of Valor. A pastor told me that he held a seminar at his church, attended by over 30 men. Many activities to attract men are taking place, and men have found out ways of bringing other men to God and then to church. The men from Blantyre are zealous for the work of God, and they have asked for 175 Chichewa Bibles and 300 MOV Notebooks to use with new believers. The men that have been brought to Christ here through the MOV Discipleship Groups are 229.

Altogether, we need 355 Bibles for the new believing men in Kasungu and Blantyre. Chichewa Bibles in Malawi cost $10.22 each and along with transportation to these cities, overnight housing, and refreshments for a group gathering to hand out the Bibles, the total cost is $4,270. (That’s $12.03/Bible. A gift of $120 will pay for 10 Bibles; $600 will cover $50 Bibles.)

We need your help! Click here to provide Bibles for these men!

Bibles for Conferences and Discipleship

Bibles are typically one-half the total cost of a conference, yet they are the most important tool for any man of valor. We wish to give a Bible to every man who attends a complete conference. Men need the word of God to know and live the priorities and practices of God. Also, in many places, pastors and church leaders have only a partial or damaged Bible, or sometimes just pages from Bibles. Our country leaders work very hard to find quality Bibles at reasonable prices – a difficult task!

Country Leaders Support: Liberia, Malawi, Kenya, and Tanzania

MOV wants to raise up team leads around the world. Men who have seen God invigorate their own churches’ outreach to men through MOV and want to share that with other leaders in their country. MOV-Malawi has operated since 2016. MOV-Kenya and MOV-Tanzania launched in 2017 and 2018; MOV-Liberia launched in 2019.

Supporting national team leaders understand the culture, and their costs are five to eight times less than the cost of sending US-based teams. Country leaders are enthusiastic about partnering with MOV for training and support in reaching men in their country.  To date, they have held multiple jumpstart conferences launched hundreds of Men of Valor Discipleship Groups.

Your designated support for our country leaders in Liberia, Malawi, Kenya, and Tanzania will assist them to reach men, their families, churches and communities. Funds are for conference- and discipleship-related expenses only. These men receive no salary or stipend from MOV.

MOV-Malawi Across Borders: Conduct International Conferences & Launch New Country Teams

MOV-Malawi has led many conferences in Malawi and launched hundreds of men’s discipleship groups in dozens of churches that previously had none.

Due to their success in Malawi, the MOV Board has requested the Malawi Team to travel to neighboring countries for two purposes:

Conduct MOV conferences and launch men’s discipleship groups, and recruit and mentor new country leaders in neighboring countries, specifically Burundi, DR Congo, Mozambique, and Zimbabwe.
Supporting national MOV leaders is highly effective and efficient because they understand the local cultures, and their costs are much less than that of sending US-based teams. Our MOV-Malawi Team is enthusiastic about reaching neighboring countries. 

All contributions to Men of Valor International are income tax deductible and are made with the understanding that Men of Valor International has complete discretion and control over the use of all donated funds.
