We are the men’s ministry of a church called St. Paul Lutheran Church. We have been the men’s ministry of our church for many years, establishing a place for men (of all ages) to meet and socialize. Our focus this year is to be about developing the lives of the men who come in contact with our church and this Men’s Life group. The first step in building a recognizable organization will be to create a recognizable brand (logo).
Our mission is to develop men who honor God in the way they live their lives, love their families, respect each other, and serve the church and community. We accomplish our mission by creating an environment where men can grow in their Christian faith through spiritual development, grow in their relationship with other men through fellowship, grow in the ways they serve the church and community through service, and prepare them to share the word of God with others through outreach. Based on that, the four areas of focus are: spiritual growth, fellowship, service, and outreach.
We have two target audiences. (1) Men in our church who have not joined our Men's Life organization. (2) Men in our community who are not part of our church but may be interested in becoming a part of Men's Life. Our group today is made up of men of all ages (from 20s to 80s), so the look for our logo must be something that will reach across generations.
Obviously the focus of the logo should be the words "Men's Life".
Our mission is to focus on four areas: spiritual growth, fellowship, service, and outreach. Although we don't want the actual words in the logo, we would like an image to accompany the words "Men's Life" that show four distinct areas (that we then can explain to someone if they ask what the four areas are). The logo should be designed with the intention of having it embroidered on a shirt, cap, etc. It should be bold and crisp. Other than those guidelines, you are free to be as creative as you wish!
