In early August, we shared with you about pastor Don Bell’s heart to encourage men to step up and lead. On Aug. 26 his church — Bethsaida Baptist in Furman — hosted 80 men from eight counties for the Brotherhood of Men event.
The topic of that night’s message was Time for Men to Lead Again. The event drew a diverse crowd, which Bell said “shows that everyone understands that there’s a need for men to stand.”
On the three Thursday nights after that, Bell also led workshops on these topics:
- Your first impression as a man matters.
- Masculinity is not toxic.
- Man was created to lead.
And on Oct. 19 he plans to host a fourth workshop on the topic of where, when and how to lead.
Bell said he hopes to take the events to churches in other parts of the state. He said it could either be done in a two-night event, or he could speak at a one-night event then leave the workshop curriculum with guidelines on how to lead it for the men in your church after the event.
“The need is everywhere,” he said. “Our culture is just gone. If the men would stand and lead, you’d have a very different country in a short amount of time.”
