Men's Ministry (Men of the Covenant)
Men Of The Covenant (MOTC) is where men can experience caring for men under the Lordship of Jesus Christ. That experience results in strengthened Christ-centered relationships with each other, their families, members of NCPC and neighbors.
MOTC is a connected community of brothers focused on contributing to the ongoing development of the Body of Christ in homes, the church, in the local community outside of the church and beyond.
In all of its activities, MOTC strives to encourage men through demonstrated love, grace and unwavering truth.
MOTC will utilize but not be limited to the following:
- Dinners with speakers for men and often their sons and guests.
- Events for couples and families.
- Focus Groups (4 to 6 men on average) where authentic relationships develop through sharing, instruction and prayer.
- Purpose Groups focused on specific objectives (military outreach, service and mercy, etc.)
- Outings and recreational activities where men experience the joy of community.
MOTC strives to carry out the instruction of Ephesians 4:12 -16 in all things:
12 to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, 13 until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, 14 so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes. 15 Rather, speaking the truth in love we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, 16 from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.
MOTC's success is measured by authentic friendships where men grow in understanding and carrying out the purpose(s) for which they were created.
MOTC is under the authority of the Session of New Covenant Presbyterian Church, Aiken, SC. An Administrative Committee (AC) appointed by the Session shall govern it. The committee shall typically consist of 4 members. From It's members a Lead can either be appointed by the Session or chosen by the AC itself. For more information on MOTC contact Terry Shiver.
There are also other events for men throughout the year:
- Father-Son Retreat
Every year the men of NCPC look forward to a retreat to Edisto Beach. This is a time for fathers and sons to connect in a relaxed atmosphere with opportunities to fish, bike, boat, bike and lots of eating. There are also times of reflection as each year a special speaker leads us in worship and devotions. For more information on the Father-Son Retreat contact Rod Rabon.
- Men’s Breakfast
A group of men meet throughout the month for breakfast, fellowship and Bible study. For more information and meeting times contact Bill Wukovits.
- Men’s Fellowship
For anyone interested in discussing future plans for Men's Fellowship. For more information contact Steve Mason.
- Men’s Golf Outings
Throughout the year, the men also hit the links for a day of fellowship and fun. The next Golf Outing will be in late spring 2017. If you would like more information about the Golf outing, contact Bill Wukovits.
The purpose of the NCPCBikers is to provide a time of fun and fellowship for the men (and women) of NCPC who ride motorcycles. The rides will also serve as an outreach to non-NCPC men and women who have this common interest. It will be a time when friendships can be established with those with whom we would otherwise never associate. Christian motorcyclists do provide a rather stark contrast to the general motorcycle population. For more information contact Doug Watson.
