Jim Ramos is a bestselling author, speaker, and the founder of Men in the Arena, an international ministry focused on equipping Christian Men in the 'Stress Bubble' of life - married, with kids in the home, struggling to lead their families, churches, and communities well. Jim passionately galvanizes men to fight passivity, "get out of the bleachers," and step up "into the arena" of spiritual leadership.

Called "one of the pioneers of digital men's ministry," Ramos leads an army of men numbering in the hundreds of thousands on social media and a global network of Men in the Arena virtual teams. He hosts the #1 ranked Spotify podcast for Christian men, the Men in the Arena Podcast, and has written numerous books, including the #1 Amazon Bestseller Strong Men Dangerous Times; the five-book Strong Men Study Guide Series for small groups, and Dialed In: Reaching Your Full Capacity as a Man of God (September 2024 with David C Cook).

Jim lives in McMinnville, Oregon, with his wife Shanna. His goal is to live each day to its fullest with courageous abandon according to Jesus’ promise in John 10:10. He loves to hunt with his adult sons, enjoy the fitness lifestyle, take tropical vacations with Shanna, and listen to men share their stories over a dark roasted Americano.
