Why Manhood Journey?

If you’re like most dads, you walk around feeling like a failure as a husband and father. You don’t have to. At Manhood Journey, we believe you can turn it around and live as a more confident, godly dad who leads his family without regrets. We think you can:

  • You become a more confident dad
  • You feel like less of a failure
  • You balance your time and priorities better

How do we know this? Because we’ve seen it. It our own lives and in the lives of the dads we serve. Manhood Journey’s mission is to help dads become disciple-makers. We do this through a number of resources.

Helping Fathers

If you’re like me, you’re a dad who wants to disciple your family well. Manhood Journey exists to help you on that journey. We provide you with small group Bible study guides and one-on-one study tools so you can lead a small groups with other fathers and sons or disciple a young man where there’s no father present. We have resources to help you be more intentional, make the most of your time and or just get started if you’re stuck. Don’t take our word for it. Check out what some pastors and respected leaders say about us.

Empowering Pastors

If you are a pastor, we can help you empower fathers in your church to be more intentional in their investment in the next generation. Kyle Idleman, the senior pastor at Southeast Christian Church and Bestselling author of Not a Fan, shares the importance of pastors getting men fully engaged in their church.

Once dads are engaged in their own Manhood Journey, they are more likely to get plugged into other service and missional areas in your church.

What is Manhood Journey?

A Disciple-Making Movement

We believe that discipling of young men is best done by their own father. This can open up a number of questions, so to be clear:

  • The wise dad knows he doesn’t have to go alone – he can enlist other dads for wisdom and even point his own son to other men who can add value.
  • A godly mom is crucial – we fully advocate an active, engaged mother in a son’s life. If anything, they are often more engaged than us dads. We simply want dads to step up as their boys head into their “double-digit” years.
  • Church leaders are key for reinforcement – but, they are not the primary discipling mechanism for our sons. We encourage men to get their sons engaged in youth groups, volunteering and other church activities. But, that should serve to reinforce, not replace, what we are already doing at home.
  • Some young men have no engaged father – this program is perfect for those young men if they have an intentional mom or a caring man who will pour into them. Some of us did not have an engaged godly father helping us figure life out. However, we found strong moms and other men we could learn from.
