As For Me And My House Men's Ministry
In Joshua 24:15, as Joshua prepared the children of Israel for the land of Canaan he made it clear that first priority went to those with whom he had immediate and direct control: he and his "house." It is clear that Joshua took the lead in his household. There was no outward timidity, hesitation, or question about his role in the family. He moved forward with God's will realizing his first responsibility was for the leading of his family, then the nation. Spiritual leadership is first developed and refined in the home. Men have the responsibility (opportunity and God-given ability) to take the lead. (1 Corinthians 11: 1-3; Ephesians 5: 23; 6: 1-4; ). At Christ Lifters the sole purpose of our Men's Ministry is to encourage men and build accountability for men to be Christian leaders in their homes as well as in the Lord's church, to love our wives as Christ first loved the church and to train up our children in the ways of the Lord. Check out a personal invitation to our As For Me And My House from Pastor Dukes.

It Takes A Village Youth Ministry
The African proverb "It takes a village to raise a child" still holds true today. However, It Takes A Village is not a youth ministry; it is a movement designed to bring youth to embrace who God is in their everyday lives, not only in childhood and adolescence, but on into adulthood. Christ Lifters' Youth Council leadership offers creative and exciting opportunities to help your children grow spiritually, mentally, and emotionally. The youth involved in this movement will learn who God is on a personal level (Time), what God has given to them (Talents), How to give back to God and community (Treasure) and how to hold onto these characteristics through good, holy, Christian and safe relationships with the CLCF Youth Council adults.
