Ministry Update 2021

“Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” –Matthew 4:19

Our Updated Mission & Vision


We are called to love God and love others. And through His grace, we have the privilege or being a part of His kingdom work in capturing souls through evangelism and discipleship.

We help men find their purpose in life through a relationship with Jesus Christ. Through transformative Bible studies, gospel-centered resources and interactive events, we’re focused on glorifying God by making Him known.

2021 marked the 18th year for Finding Purpose. That’s 18 years of catching men for life! God has worked in and through our ministry this year, and we’re excited to share the ways we are casting our nets – all for His glory.

To catch others for Christ, we must be obedient to His sovereign authority. 

In Luke’s gospel, Peter responds to Jesus’ command by casting his nets in deep water for a catch, and we obediently strive to do the same.

This year, we’ve continued to dive deeper with men’s Bible studies, cultivating our relationships with one another.

To catch others for Christ we must grow in our understanding of who He is and who we are in Him. 

It’s in that growth that love overflows leading us to share the truth with others. Here’s how we are casting our nets wider to reach more people.


  • Investing in new broadcast technology to strengthen virtual outreach
  • Reaching a larger audience with radio ministry and podcasts
  • Connecting with the college community with our Monday study
  • Challenging men to live out the gospel through weekly devotionals
  • Creating opportunities to develop new leaders
  • Reaching a group of 20+ businessmen with our Friday morning Bible study

To catch others for Christ we must work together in ministry. 

The greatest purpose we have in life is to follow Jesus. And we’re meant to do that together, in community. We are drawing new men to the ministry, and more importantly, to Jesus through various outreach efforts:

Hosting new events including:

  • EGAG Webb Simpson Golf Tournament (CCNC, Pinehurst, NC)
  • Men’s Retreat at the Cove (Asheville, NC)
  • 12-week Summer Bible Study – The Basics of the Christian Life

  • Upcoming Leadership Retreat at Williamsburg Lodge

Strengthening relationships with host churches

Through The Men’s Study I have not only made lifelong friends but I have developed a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and formed Bible study habits that have transformed my life and my family’s lives.

Finding Purpose has become a staple in my spiritual life. I depend on fellowship with the men to keep me excited about our study. I have seen men mature in their faith. I have also seen men give their lives to our Lord Jesus Christ and become new creations in their home, at work and in every way. It doesn’t get any better than that!

Jim Branch, 70

The Friday morning study has been very rewarding in helping me stay connected with other Christian men. Men with whom I can share my weaknesses and troubles as well as great successes at home and in life are great assets in times of need and in times of rejoicing. 

Charles Creech, 48
