About Men With The Master

Overview & Ethos

Men with the Master (MwM) is a non-profit activity. Events are held at least annually, generally as Residential Weekends. Guest speakers provide core themes for participants to share and discuss. Men from all over Australia and overseas participate in and contribute to activities with an open Christlike spirit, enjoying fellowship as well as common beliefs and values.

The purpose of Men with the Master (MwM) is to:

  1. Enjoy the occasion
  2. Encourage others in their faith
  3. Bring out the best in each other
  4. Provide opportunities for new friendships
  5. Extend our knowledge of Jesus Christ, God and His word
  6. Take the benefits derived from MwM into all other aspects of our lives.

What To Expect

For Residential Weekends, you can expect comfortable accommodation, three square meals a day, morning and afternoon teas, no dishes to wash or meal preparation, great company and ample time to socialise and have a lot of fun!

Feedback From A Past Leader At MwM:

‘It has been my privilege to speak at several MwMs, although I do not see myself as the speaker in the normal sense - more the facilitator of discussion on the various subjects.

What I value most about MwM is the freedom of discussion, the expression of thought, including doubts and fears that brethren in Christ have and to some extent, the resolution of those concerns from the scriptures. Whilst not everyone necessarily goes away from the weekend feeling better spiritually, it is my perception that most do.

I love the atmosphere of friendship and brotherhood engendered and the sharing of wisdom.

At a more personal level I enjoy MwM because it gives me some quiet time for thinking, prayer and writing my journal in an inspiring context. I feel strengthened by the faith of my brothers and by the power of God I see working in them. I also go away more committed and resolved to demonstrate with renewed energy the principles of love in my life at home at work and in the ecclesia.’
