On Sunday, November 22 — the Solemnity of our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe — the Fishers of Men lost our captain, beloved brother and true friend Bill Platten from complications due to COVID-19. In our Lord’s final conversation with his closest friends (John 15), He said “By this is my Father glorified, that you bear much fruit, and so prove to be my disciples”.
“Fishers of Men is a Catholic men's ministry which calls, equips and encourages men through an experience of authentic friendship to become active disciples of Jesus Christ”
Read Scott Leary’s: Why I’m Catholic – The term Catholic means “universal”, and for 2000 years has referred to those who associate themselves with the Church founded by Jesus Christ on the Rock of Peter
Based in Memphis, TN, Fishers of Men offers authentic friendship utilizing small faith sharing groups.
We welcome new participants! Meetings consist of Fellowship, Praise and worship songs, group prayer, group sharing, and study.
We believe that knowing the TRUTH is essential for spiritual growth.
God loves everyone and wants them to join Him in heaven
We are all sinners by nature.
God became man as Jesus Christ who died for us in reparation for all sins so that we may have eternal life with Him.
We must accept His gift with a response; repent, believe, and invite Jesus to come into our lives.
We must abide in Jesus and His Church by obeying his teachings and living a Sacramental life.
Men’s Ministry is a key commitment for me because I believe it’s the central focus of the Holy Spirit’s initiative to renew the Church by capturing men’s hearts for a personal relationship with Christ.
Steve Bowie,Fishers of Men
I am working in Men’s Ministry because I know that the solution to many of the issues facing our Church and our culture is Godly men taking a strong leadership position and doing the right thing. God needs us to lead our families and our society back to Him. It will not happen if YOU don’t make it happen.
Bill Platten,Fishers of Men
It’s hard to describe the richness that God, through the Fishers of Men, has delivered to my life and family by holding me accountable to Worship, Study, and Action, and specifically, by helping men advance in their faith journeys. Fortunately, I said yes to HIS invitation long ago, Christ calls you to do the same, today and always. Join us.
Dave Kevern,Fishers of Men
Fishers of Men for me is a great way for me to keep plugged in to my Catholicism. I can’t wait to see what is going to come out in our weekly discussion groups.
