Our vision is, “Trusting Jesus Christ to build an army of men, who are becoming their best version in Christ, and changing their world (because when a man gets it—everyone wins!).” Simply put, our vison is to transform the lives of men, and the people and causes they love.
Our vision is nothing without Jesus who encompasses everything we do and believe. Note that within the vision are our three missional (or strategic) areas: 1) building an army of men, 2) who are becoming their best version, and 3) changing their world. Imagine a mountain with three levels from base to summit. These levels are represented by the words, Enlist, Invest, and Change.
ENLIST. We are passionately building an army and want to recruit you to be a part of it! Join the Men in the Arena army simply by subscribing to one of our many high-octane free resources including the top-rated Men in the Arena Podcast, where we interview experts and specialists in the realm of manhood. When you sign up for a free Electronic version of our 365 Day Field Guide: Our Bathroom Book for Men we’ll also add you to our weekly Equipping Blast that goes out to men from around the world every week. Lastly, if you have Facebook, join thousands of men from around the world on the Men in the Arena closed group. If you do not have Facebook, consider joining our website forum. These are just three of the ways you can enlist in our army.
INVEST. Men, don’t think that you’ll become your best version through osmosis. It takes time, energy, and resources. Make a strategic investment in your masculine spiritual growth today. There’s always a cost when anything worthwhile is at stake. A price must be paid, and we don’t care where you pay it or who you pay it to. We believe in the power of partnership and collaboration with other great ministries around the world. We have many excellent resources to help you on the journey to your best version in Jesus. Check out our online store that unlocks the world of the Men in the Arena. We have books, curriculum, and variety of resources available.
CHANGE. We live with the conviction that the summit of manhood is when a man fully grasps who he is as a Christian man. When that man commits to living according to the masculine life Jesus modeled, things change. When a man gets it—everyone wins! The “IT” in our tag line is a man radically committed to Jesus and pursuing his best version. When a man gets it, marriages change, families change, churches change, communities change, nations change and the world changes.
By “Changing their world” we mean their circle of influence. Men are innately wired by God to lead, fix, build and conquer. Men, who get it give back. They love. They serve. They sacrifice. Our ministry is supported in large measure by men who get it. Our teams are led by men who get it. We want you to be one of those men, but first things first!
