The East Cedar Grove Missionary Baptist Association Laymen's League  consisting  of  a group of spiritually guided men within association churches that are very concerned about our male youth in our community. This is a male-oriented spirit filled mentoring program within ECGMBA , and to assist the churches in cultivating our males in becoming productive citizens in their homes, church, schools and communities.

The Laymen League Auxiliary has a comprehensive program including:

  • Annual Session attracting men, women and boys from across the association Quarterly Study Commission held in one of five districts  of the 5 five county area  to bring laymen together for study
  • Annual Men and Boys Retreat held to provide fellowship and recreation and to encourage mentoring
  • Participation in the Walter Cade Southeast Regional Workshop of the National Baptist Laymen Movement
  • Raising funds for the missions objectives of the ECGMBA and General Baptist State Convention of North Carolina


 ECGMBA is to educate young males ages 8  to 35 and to provide them with the necessary values to prepare them for life so that they may grow into productive godly young men. Having the full revelation of Christ's mind in the Bible, we will address issues and concerns from scripture in the Holy Bible 


Program Provides:

  • Spiritual Direction and Counseling: Principles on how we should govern our lives according to scripture.
  • Touchable Role Models: Men who assist in developing a responsible and respected young adult male.
  • Education: Scripture study, Public Speaking, Academics, Drug Prevention, and Peer Pressure.
  • Sporting Activities and Outings
  • Sessions: Once a quarter  sessions at the church every second Saturday morning from 9:30am to 11:00 am. During each session we will have a discussion. As a follow up, we will tackle issues related to the mentee's everyday lives and how to cope with them. Each session will begin with song, scripture and prayer.
  • Community Service: We will work with the outreach ministries within the church.
  • Parental Support: Provide parents support in difficult parenting situations. (ie. School visits, counseling sessions and discussions).

Goals for Mentees:

  • To encourage the development of Christian men for the years that lie ahead
  • To provide positive role models for young men who are willing to adhere to the goals established
  • To promote the development of spirit filled male leaders within the community
