Play the Man by Mark Batterson

Men come join us! Our next gathering is on Saturday October 12 at 8:00 AM at Faith UMC. The ten men who were introduced to this study last month all agreed, this is a thrilling and powerful study!  Here is a brief description:

Somewhere along the way, our culture lost its definition of manhood, leaving generations of men and men-to-be confused about their roles, responsibilities, relationships, and the reason God made them men.  It’s into this “no-man’s-land” Mark Batterson brings his inspiring call to something greater, helping men understand what it means to be a man of God. Along the way he shares inspiring stories of manhood, coupling those stories with practical ideas about how to disciple the next generation of men. This is more than a book—it’s a movement of men who will settle for nothing less than fulfilling their highest calling to be the man and the father God has destined them to be.

In this 4-session DVD study, he helps men understand what it means to be a man of God by unveiling seven virtues of manhood. One of compelling stories is the true story of the hero and martyr Polycarp, who first heard God’s voice from heaven say, “Play the man.” He also offers practical ideas about how to disciple the next generation of men who will put God first, family second, and career third.  The four sessions include:

  • Rewilding
  • The Seven Virtues of Manhood
  • Be the Man!
  • Rite of Passage
