What is M68?

M68 is the men’s ministry of Tuckaseege Baptist Church. It’s namesake comes out of Micah 6:8. This scripture is a concise but powerful guide to serving God. When we act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with God, He declares that it is “good” and “what Christ requires”. We challenge men to live this out and strive to pursue Christ in all aspects of their journey.

Please feel free to join us Wednesday Nights @ 6:30pm as we dig deeper into God's word.

M68 Structure:

1. Huddle up! We ask that each guy gets in a huddle. Huddles are small groups of 3-5 men that meet on a regular basis (1-4X per month) in an informal setting to catch up with each other and stay connected in community.

2. Dig In! Discipleship is key. We meet every Wednesday night @ 6:30 to go deeper into scripture, a particular topic, & maybe a book study. It’s a great time of weekly fellowship as well.

3. Serve Others! We believe that M68 should lead the way in supporting the mission of Tuckaseege. To be a group that shows God’s love in our actions, we must look for ways to serve others in our community and each other. We actively pursue opportunities inside and outside of Tuckaseege to serve.

4. Gather to Worship! We gather together once a quarter to worship together as men. We think it important to stay connect through worshiping together and being challenged in our walk with Christ.

Five Principles of M68:

What you can expect from the M68 Community

1. Long Term, Low Pressure.  We want to give men permission to stand around the rim of what we are doing and observe. Men come along at different speeds. We want to give them permission to buy in at their own pace and allow them to come on board at their own level of involvement.
2. Show Men Christ Versus Fix Their Behavior. We want to point men to Christ rather than just focusing on their behavior. We can point men to Christ, but the Holy Spirit must change their lives. Christianity is not about behavior modification, it’s about heart transformation.
3. Relationship Based Versus Task Oriented. Without real and deep relationships, men will feel no sense of community with one another. If we only call men together to “do” there will be no glue to hold them together when the planned event is over. Events attract men, relationships make them stick.
4. Three Goals for Every Man. Real impact will happen when in a man's life when he:
  1. Reads his Bible daily and eventually begin to journal his thoughts and prayers.
  2.  Joins a small group for Bible Study and accountability.
  3.  Engages in personal ministry where he serves out of the overflow of his relationship with Christ and his brothers.

5. Five Responsibilities of Every Man. We want every man to take personal responsibility for his own private life in five areas:
1. His walk with God
2. His relationship with his wife
3. His relationship with his children
4. His personal finances

5. His health.
