Pastor Jack Hayford, president of The Foursquare Church, announces a new national initiative among men and leaders of men. The new ministry focus will serve the local church by providing resources, networks and connections as it helps to equip and encourage men as leaders, husbands and fathers, based on the foundation of discipleship and mentoring.

Rev. Gary Dunahoo has been appointed as national director of Foursquare Men serving the larger mission of the Foursquare National Church Office. Gary is a graduate of the School of Bible Theology of San Jacinto, Calif. His 25-year ministry includes serving as associate pastor, senior pastor, church planter and district youth director. He is a co-presenter of Marriage Enrichment Seminars nationally and a frequent speaker for conferences, youth camps and men’s retreats.

Currently, Gary serves as a church planter in Fayetteville, Ark., and as administrator for the Arkansas District. He is a member of the National Church Multiplication Team and coaches church planters and pastors. Gary and his wife, Tammy, have been married for 26 years and have two children, Josh, 24, and Ashlee, 22, who is married to Jeremy Booth. Gary will assume his new assignment immediately and will be field-based from the church he and Tammy pastor in Fayetteville, Ark.

The appointment of a national leader to oversee an initiative of men’s ministries emphasizes the importance within The Foursquare Church of a comprehensive ministry enabling the discipleship of men, in addition to the already established ministries to women, youth and children.

Foursquare Men’s Ministries will partner with local Foursquare congregations to see our churches filled with men who serve their relationships, their churches and their communities with the life of Christ. Foursquare Men’s Ministry will resource the local church in starting and sharpening local men’s ministries, helping men become spiritual brothers, husbands and fathers.

The Foursquare family will benefit from the leadership of Gary Dunahoo in this new assignment, and we encourage the full support and participation of our pastors and leaders in the development of this new initiative.
