Stepping Up Strategic Allies

We’re grateful to the following ministry partners who share a commitment to see men step up to courageous manhood.

Every Man Ministries

Founded by Kenny Luck, men’s pastor at Saddleback Church, Lake Forest, CA, EMM seeks to create a movement of men empowered to lead others on a meaningful journey into personal character and leadership, ultimately having a positive impact on generations of women, children and families. EMM offers catalytic events that connect men into small groups and life and provide leader development with the goal of spiritual maturity.

National Coalition of Ministries to Men

NCMM partners with over 150 organizations and independent ministries with the goal of discipling men and leading them to be witnesses of the good news of Jesus Christ to all men. They accomplish this by assisting the local church in reaching men, in encouraging them to pursue God and in equipping them for spiritual service at home, at church, at work, in the community and in the world.

Iron Sharpens Iron

Iron Sharpens Iron works interdependently with local men’s ministries to offer local church resources for men. These ministries resource churches locally or regionally with a first class, one-day equipping conference designed for men, teenage through adult.

Promise Keepers

From its founding in 1990, Promise Keepers has challenged men to godly manhood through world-class, large-scale events for men. Away from distractions, the all male environment of a Promise Keepers event sets men free to drop the normal posturing and humble themselves in Jesus Christ, committing to new beginnings.

Man in the Mirror

A passion for helping churches reach and disciple men marks Man in the Mirror, the ministry begun by Patrick Morley. MITM provides leadership training, men’s discipleship resources, and coaching to pastors and church leaders through local area directors. With God’s help, by 2020 they desire to see 10 million men leading powerful lives transformed by Christ.

Sherwood Pictures

A staff member’s childhood passion for making movies was the genesis behind Sherwood Pictures, the movie-making ministry of Sherwood Baptist Church, Albany, GA. Their goal is to make family-friendly movies that build on Christian principles and communicate the gospel without compromise. Their successes include Flywheel, Facing the Giants, Fireproof, and Courageous.

All Pro Dad

All Pro Dad strives to help fathers become passionate about their role in their family’s life by providing them every resource needed to rightly train up their children and give them a hopeful future. Its aim is to interlock the hearts of fathers with their children and as a byproduct the hearts of children with their dads. All Pro Dad’s 53 NFL spokesmen are a group of coaches, players and alumni dedicated to their families and proud to be advocates for fatherhood. Tony Dungy, Mike Tomlin and many other men exemplify passion, discipline, work ethic, commitment and loyalty both on and off the field and in their homes.

Christ in The Rockies

Christ in the Rockies exists to communicate a proven and powerful vision of authentic manhood in the context of outdoor adventure such as mountain biking and rock climbing. We encourage fathers and sons to step up to Jesus’ high calling for men while they walk together through the seasons of a man’s journey. CITR’s primary camp is a “Passage to Manhood” where fathers have opportunity to publicly bless their sons and impart a godly vision for their lives. The week culminates with a moving rite-of-passage ceremony where each dad charges his son to join with him and the company of men in the pursuit of authentic, Christian manhood.
