Men for Missions exists to challenge men with the unfinished task of reaching the lost for Christ. The priority of MFM is the lordship of Jesus Christ in each person’s life at home and around the world. The challenge of MFM is:
Do whatever God asks you to do.
Go wherever God asks you to go.
Give whatever God asks you to give.
By Gods grace, One Mission Society unites, inspires and equips Christians to make disciples of Jesus Christ, multiplying dynamic communities of believers around the world.
