Men as Prophets, Priests, and Kings

In this Real Men sermon, Pastor Mark uses Melchizedek, who is said to be a prophet, priest, and king as the basis for men to look introspectively at their strengths and gifting in these three areas.

  • Focus is on the WHO & we can miss the WHAT
  • Melchizedek is a leader and shares qualities with Jesus the perfect man/leader
