The Metropolitan District Laymen are responsible for the promotion of laymen's work through the local churches.


Mission Statement

The mission of the Metropolitan District Laymen Movement is to enlist and coordinate the manpower of the local congregations. To cultivate the Christian life of men through study, worship, fellowship and service. Our focus is on building authentic, Christ- centered, trusting relationships amongst our men. Such that we can help encourage one another to grow in Christlikeness, serve others in need and evangelize the lost. Our goal is also to develop mentors and nurture our young boys, so they can grow to be the men God created them to be.

Laymen's Pledge

As Metropolitan District Laymen, we pledge: 

To unite together to demonstrate more fully the essential oneness of men in the Lord
To promote a spirit of fellowship and cooperation among our men.

We also pledge to serve as a training catalyst for men and boys in mission and any other areas needed to grow a vibrant, Christ-centered, disciple-making, life-changing Men's Ministry in our churches.

Meeting Schedule

Laymen meet on the 3rd Saturday of each month from 9:00 am - 12:00 noon.
