New Man Magazine featured an article about what's wrong
with most men's discipleship efforts:
"We know that as go the men, so go the marriages, families, churches, communities and culture. Today these institutions are in crisis because men are in crisis...Men are largely disengaged, unchallenged,under-led, discouraged, and disconnected. READ MORE

YOUR MEN's MINISTRY TOOL BOX
WACMM has some of the best men's resources available anywhere to help you grow in biblical manhood and to disciple your family and other men. Below is a sampling of what's available:
"God can show Himself as He really is only to real men. And that means not simply to men who are individually good, but to men who are united together in a body, loving one another, helping one another, showing Him to one another. For that is what God meant humanity to be like; like players in one band, or organs in one body." - C. S. Lewis
Most of you are now familiar with the hit A&E reality series "Duck Dynasty" which is about family patriarch Phil "Duck Commander" Robertson, his wife and their three bearded sons. They're in the duck call and decoy business in Louisiana and their show ends with the family praying at the dinner table. It is cable TV's #1 program.
Check out Phil Robertson's riveting testimony about his faith in Jesus Christ HERE. This is the power of the gospel! Phil is my kind of redneck! We're the same age, same rural country roots and he's my Brother in Christ!!
WHAT IS A REAL MAN?
The Apostle Paul tells us how he knew he had crossed over into manhood. In 1 Corinthians 13: 11 he writes, "When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child, BUT WHEN I BECAME A MAN, I did away with childish things."
What a man surrenders to will determine his outcome as a man. Real manhood steps away from childish things. Real manhood means we courageously step up to whatever challenge, temptation or battle we face and do our duty, knowing and delighting in who we are in Christ.

Apparently, he was in the elevator one day when a young woman came in. Proctor tipped his hat at her. She was offended and said, 'What is that supposed to mean?' The pastor's response was: 'Madame, by tipping my hat I was telling you several things. That I would not harm you in any way. That if someone came into this elevator and threatened you, I would defend you. That if you fell ill, I would tend to you and if necessary carry you to safety. I was telling you that even though I am a man and physically stronger than you, I will treat you with both respect and solicitude. But frankly, Madame, it would have taken too much time to tell you all of that; so, instead, I just tipped my hat."
Here's a wonderfully illustrative story of what it means to be an authentic man from the life of Samuel Proctor, Pastor of Harlem's Abyssinian Baptist Church:
Biblical Manhood as Chivalry
Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson on the Power of the Gospel
The Gospel 4 Men
"The power of the gospel comes in two movements. It first says, 'I am more sinful and flawed than I ever dared believe,' but then quickly follows with, 'I am more accepted and loved than I ever dared hope,"
The Gospel is not about trying harder, doing more, feeling better, being good enough, keeping rules, maximizing your potential or having your best life now. Nor is it good advice, having some subjective experience or

Beware of "Gender-neutral" Bibles!
Ministries to men that are serious about dealing with gender confusion in the culture and in the church should start first by avoiding the TNIV and NIV11 translations. Both
badly miss the mark regarding the textual foundation for biblical manhood and womanhood. Here's why: HERE
