We are a community of brothers who believe in being better, by building each other, growing together. A company of brothers, that seek to become an example of true manhood for this generation and the next.
WHO ARE WE?
4:12MEN started in Spring 2017 by Ayokunu Oduniyi. His desire was to see men gather and grow together as we navigate what it means to be a Godly man in today’s society. 4:12 MEN derives its name from:
1 Timothy 4:12 – “Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity.”
We believe that we have an opportunity as young men, we have an opportunity to be Godly influence in our communities.
We want to be men of example showing both believers and the world how we should live. We want to own the responsibility of our choices, how we think, what we stand for and against and essentially how we live. Knowing we posses the power of influence, and knowing that real change starts with ourselves. We want to change the status quo of what it means to be a man in the 21st Century, and be the men that God has created in His own image.
What Do Our Brothers Say?
Attending 412 Men weekly has really challenged, encouraged and developed me to know the best way to live out my Journey to Manhood, at its greatest; is only through Jesus Christ.
412 Men has been a real opportunity to grow and share among real men going places. It is challenging, fun as well nurturing.
Attending 412 men has been phenomenal and life changing for me. Every Monday, I learn about the word of God and grow in my spiritual walk amongst great men of God. We are challenged, we have fun but most importantly we are all growing together in all areas of our lives.
These group of men have given me an opportunity of real community. A brotherhood of men looking to firm their identify in their Heavenly Father. We lay down crowns, pride , ego to seek our status as sons. The Holy Spirit has fostered an environment were men can organically grow into their purpose and I am super glad to be a part of this move of God!
Going to 412 men has been refreshing. It’s been funny, eye-opening, real and organic. The topics are always relatable to the man in me and things are never left on a surface level. We get to address areas that previously we may not have even thought of or areas that we keep hidden or unaddressed because we don’t know how to deal with those areas of our lives. It’s a fellowship thats consistent and does things with quality and it’s been a blessing for me every time I’ve attended.
