Our Vision

We want to be one of the agents of change among Christian men in America that advances the kingdom and rebuilds the family. We do this primarily through weekly men’s meetings where we study God’s Word and live it out together through accountability and transparent relationships based on love.

FUEL Ministries is building a network of meetings in communities that will serve the local church. In addition to the physical meeting, we have an extensive online Bible Study that is focused on teaching men the Biblical prescriptions used to battle the strongholds in their lives that are holding them down.

Another cornerstone of the FUEL ministry is The Jordan Center, which is a 100-man recovery center that is based on discipleship and making disciples that make disciples. We also us the E3 process of Encouragement, Equipping and Empowering men to carry out the great commission with the gifts that God has given them.

The last two pieces of FUEL is to be proactive in reaching parents of Jr. High and High School students with the tools to equip them in understanding the pitfalls of technology that their kids are in or will be introduced to, in an addition to quarterly outreaches to get the word out about FUEL Ministries and be able to minister to men in the community that are caught in the bondage of sin and might not know Jesus.

Ministry Values

1. God is sovereign over everything.
Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things which have not been done, Saying, ‘My purpose will be established, And I will accomplish all My good pleasure’; Isaiah 46:10 (NIV)

2. The Bible is absolute Truth and is the breath of God in the written word.
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 2 Timothy 3:16 (NIV)

3. Prayer is what we rely on to accomplish anything.
12Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. 13And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it. John 14:12-13 (NIV)

4. Multiply the gifts that God gives.
19Now after a long time the master of those servants came and settled accounts with them. 20And he who had received the five talents came forward, bringing five talents more, saying, ‘Master, you delivered to me five talents; here, I have made five talents more.’ 21His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.’ Matthew 25:19-21 (ESV)
