Over 400 men of various ages thronged Golden Peacock Hotel in Lilongwe on Saturday to witness the launch of the Men of Purpose by Raised for a Purpose (RFP) Ministries.
An additional 200 men attended the launch through RFP’s online streaming platforms. The launch held under the theme: “The Rise of Men of Purpose’.
RFP is one of the fastest-growing ministries in Malawi and the launch of Men of Purpose is aimed at raising men in and outside the church to become the best version of themselves.
Activities marking the event included special intercessory prayers, talk-shows, worship moments, interactions and sharing the word of God, which all aimed at developing and empowering the men in their various roles in society.
RFP Founder, Overseer and Senior Pastor, Aubrey Mwasinga, delivered a stirring message, challenging the men to rise up to their respective roles if they are to impact their surrounding and the world.
“Men have invested so much in discovering the world and controlling it, but have done little to discover and improve humanity. So as a man you need to discover what God wanted you to achieve when He created you, and pursue that original plan of God for you. As such, as a man you should act on the word of God and take your place seriously,” said Mwasinga.
Mwasinga did not mince words in demonstrating through practical examples how some of the world’s and Malawi’s most pressing challenges would not exist if men knew why they existed, what their purpose in life is and how to provide solutions.
He also stated the areas in which men ought to take their place and take charge include prayer, decision-making, accepting responsibility, financial prosperity, and emotional stability among others.
“As a man, you cannot be broke, you need to ensure you are financially stable [or at least proving that you are doing something about your situation]. Success in life demands you being able to command stability in all these areas and show that you are using all that God has indeed deposited in you as a man,” he said.
Mwasinga who is also an Accounting and Financial Consultant, successful entrepreneur and renowned relationship and marriage counsellor also touched on the trending matter of concern, depression, which he said was worrying and needed men to stand up and do something about it.
He said among solutions to such emotional issues, men should endlessly spend time in prayer, developing a learning spirit from others and programme their minds towards providing solutions and not running away from challenges.
Men of Purpose, he said, provides a platform for men to help each other address these challenges of life and most importantly build them for success in all spheres of life.
One of the attendees to the conference, IMELA Brands CEO Ian Ndalama, could not hide his joy and contentment over the launch of the men’s Ministry, saying it will provide men in the country and beyond, with an opportunity to share knowledge and build each other up in business, family life and other areas.
“As an entrepreneur, I know that such a platform is crucial even for my business, every man needs the word of God and a shared space with other equal –minded individuals, to progress in life and help others towards greatness. I encourage all men to be part of Men of Purpose,” he said.
The launch did not only attract men from within RFP but also many from other spheres of life, including the Christian community, business and entrepreneurship fields, corporate sector, private and public institutions from across the country.
“I have experienced massive growth in my life through RFP Ministries and I know the birth of Men of Purpose will only amplify my success story” testified Prophet Dumisani Nungu of Enabled Ministers of God Ministries.
Men of Purpose overseer Pastor Marcus Daniel announced that the Men of Purpose Ministry will be holding monthly and quarterly meetings and activities of various nature which will be announced in all RFP Ministries Global platforms before they take place. He said men from any background are welcome to be part of the Ministry.
The next conference is slated to hold on 14th May 2022 in Blantyre.
