The Men’s Missionary Union (MMU) is an organization for men (Baptist Men’s Fellowship) under the auspices of Nigerian Baptist Convention.
The Men Missionary Union of Union Baptist Church believes in absolute obedience to the Great Command of our Lord Jesus Christ. As a ministry, our focus is to ensure that every man is saved and highly rooted in the Word of God. We are concerned about all round development of every man in the church. We believe on the Word of God that says let every man raises a holy hand unto the Almighty Father therefore we are concerned with development of effective prayer life of every man in MMU.
It is our concern that every man is financially empowered and duly contented with what he has. Furthermore, we believe that every couple in the church should have an enjoyable marital life, filled with the Spirit of the Lord and with attending sense of belonging.
In compliance with the Nigerian Baptist Convention directive, the group metamorphosed into Men Missionary Union. This organization has embarked on various developmental mission projects in the church. Under the pastoral leadership of Revd Dr. Olayiwola in collaboration with the past and present MMU executives, weekly assembly enjoys impressive attendance with programmes touching on the spiritual, welfare, health, family life, and financial empowerment of individual members.
The MMU cooperates fully with departments of the church such as the WMU and Youth Fellowship in the execution of missionary projects and other programmes such as outdoor witnessing, Mothers’ Day, Youth Week and Couples’ Day to mention but a few.
