318 mens ministry



The 318 Army is the Men’s Ministry of Emmanuel Fellowship, designed to cultivate personal spiritual development and family enrichment in an atmosphere of masculine awakening and brotherhood. The 318 Army utilizes the Genesis 14 account of Abraham rescuing Lot as the narrative by which our ministry unfolds, emphasizing the four essential elements of:

 Train

 Pursue

 Route

 Recover

Our means of ministry is awakened masculinity. Our aim is and will always be to send men back to their homes ready to fight tenaciously for their most sacred gift.


When trying to visualize the essence of the 318 Army, imagine what it would be like if a group of Boy Scouts attended a Vacation Bible School which was led by Navy SEALs. That’s something like the culture we are trying to create!




Monthly Gathering:

The 318 Army gathers monthly for equipping and encouragement. The format of the meetings alternate between a fellowship meal and an equipping event. Monthly gatherings are open to all men of Emmanuel Fellowship Church (17 and older) and their friends.

- Meal Gatherings: Fellowship, testimony, and award presentations

- Equipping Gatherings: Training of body, mind, and spirit


Boot Camp:

Official initiation into The 318 Army occurs at Boot Camp. This retreat based event will include a rite of passage which qualifies men to enter the brotherhood of the 318. Admission to Boot Camp requires completion of the 18 Day Personal Journal in which each man will complete a series of Bible studies and preparations. Boot Camp is open to men (17 and older) who are actively involved with Emmanuel Fellowship Church.
