There are literally hundreds of resources guys can choose from to grow closer to God and make and impact in their families and communities. As a leadership committee, we’ve decided to include ministry tools that we personally use and seen great benefit from using.
Brows the Men’s ministry resources below and contact us for a personal account of how a particular program or event has impacted us and challenged us to be intentional in our family, faith and community.
Our number 1 resource
Without being cheesy or cliché, the Bible is the best resource for understanding who we are, who God is, and see the thousands of ways God has shown himself to and through His creation, from the beginning of time until now.
God is not a product. It's hard to share the Good News authentically in a consumer driven society. We need to see Jesus for who he is, not just another consumer option. Focus your life on Scripture and follow the teachings of Christ rather than trying to get an emotional experience or a feeling of enlightenment from trendy ideas.
So, do yourself a favor and make Scripture the foundation on which you judge any workbook, Bible study, or Christian event.

A discipleship process to fight lust, get free and follow Jesus.
This is a spiritual journey using a workbook, videos, and going through the Steps to Freedom (by Neil T. Anderson). You dive deep into these powerful lessons to get a hold of who you are in Christ, learn to fight spiritually first, and train your whole mind body and soul for spiritual warfare, while at the same time, submitting everything over to Jesus.
“Before I began Dangerous Men, I was walking in shame and frustration with past sexual sins and other areas of my life. I thought Dangerous Men was going to strictly be a sexual purity study, but it turned out to be a lot more." - A guy named Dan

One 2 One Discipleship
A discipleship workbook for individual mentorship
Discipleship seems to be a difficult thing for many believers. It takes time and dedication to disciple someone. Multiplication Ministries offers a solid, biblical discipleship workbook to help you dive deep into what it means to be a Christian. It's not flashy or trendy. It's methodical, founded on Scripture, and begs the participants to know the God of the universe and to understand the principals of what it means to be a Jesus follower.
Each of the 8 sections present dozens of Bible passages and discussion questions that guide the conversations around each topic. It's not seeking an emotional high. It's not experiencing a feeling that lasts for a few moments. It's all about the truth founded in Scripture about a loving, just, and mighty God who desires a relationship with his creation.
