It is time for men to live in the moment and for the moment. The greatest threat to the Enemy will be when men rise up and fulfill their God-given destiny.

I am humbled and amazed how God has used LifeWay Men to assemble some

of the most successful leaders of our time to speak to the hearts of men. Some of them have won championships and reached Hall of Fame status. Others have produced awardwinning films, television shows, and New York Times-bestselling books. Many have taken the stage in arenas filled with thousands of men to share their heart for God. These are men who have influenced our culture through sports, politics, media, and the church. They have impacted leaders all the way from Hollywood decision makers to sitting presidents! These men have lived in the moment God gave them.

But this group of leaders is not just different because they lived in the moment;

they live for the moment. A day is coming when every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. That is the moment when we will achieve the final win. That moment will lead to a championship celebration that never ends. The common thread in each of these leader’s lives is that they have experienced moments of both success and failure but continue to live for that ultimate moment!

Our hope is that God will use their moments and their messages to impact your

life. LifeWay Men exists to help churches make disciples of men. We want to make it easy for you and easy for the church. We will give you the tools to impact today’s generation and tomorrow’s. You can trust that our resources and events will always be deeply rooted in Scripture. Just when you think we have done all we can, we will be ready to do the next thing to help you reach one more man!

Thank you for your trust. I hope this catalog provides a good toolbox that will

help your church develop a ministry to men. Serving you through Him,

Sleeping Giant is an intentional men’s strategy for moving men from merely “affiliated” to “activated” for the mission of your church. It includes four steps: Get In, Get Healthy, Get Strong, and Get Going. The first step in the spiritual pathway—Get In—is the catalytic funnel that (1) motivates men, (2) shares a vision, and (3) gets men into groups. The final stage is Get Going, in which healthy, strong, trained men are deployed to serve the church and carry out their mission in the world to aggressively share the gospel. The two middle steps are highlighted below, with a few recommended resources for each stage.

Get HEALTHY STANDING STRONG AGAINST TEMPTATION

TEMPTATION workbook kenny luck

Being God’s man series GET HEALTHY

UNDERSTANDING A WOMAN’S HEART

INTIMACY kenny luck workbook

Being God’s man series GET HEALTHY

The Get Healthy stage involves defining and meeting a man’s felt needs and helping him get a “win” that is meaningful to him. In a group context and with group safety and support, men need to go after core health in their own character and relationships first. This involves an open discussion of temptation and compromise (moral health), their views of women and marriage (marital health), their leadership in the home (family health), and how masculine friendship and accountability work (relational health).

Get Strong

Once a church has defined and met the felt needs of a man, the transformational capital earned by the church in that man’s life needs to be spent on leadership development and the call for that man to Get Strong. Throughout the Get Strong courses, men will feel themselves going to the next level of commitment personally, spiritually, and practically in ministry. Strong spiritual formation leads to strong spiritual expression of the Great Commandment and Great Commission. 6

It’s Not too Late How God Uses Less Than Perfect People

toNY eVaNs

It’s Not Too Late How God Uses Less Than Perfect People If you’ve ever wondered Is it too late for God to do

something with me? this study is for you. God frequently uses broken people to accomplish His purposes on earth. This six-session study looks at three men and three women of the Bible who were used mightily by God despite their previous mistakes. You too can learn to focus on the potential of your future, not the missteps of your past.

Kingdom Man Every Man’s Destiny, Every Woman’s Dream Our culture has redefined manhood by emasculating men through a repositioning of the role. Men are portrayed as weak, self-serving, and unfocused. This six-session Bible study is designed to empower men to exercise the Godgiven dominion they were created for by giving them a Kingdom understanding, vision, and perspective on their identity and responsibilities, along with practical steps on how to become a man who rules his world well.

Victory in Spiritual Warfare Field Guide for Battle “Spiritual warfare” is defined as “the cosmic conflict waged in the invisible, spiritual realm which is simultaneously fleshed out in the context of the visible, physical realm.” In this eight-session Bible study, Pastor Tony Evans pragmatically teaches Ephesians 6:10-18, providing application so that believers can stand against the devil’s tactics by putting on the full armor of God.

All Pro Dad Just as knowing the fundamentals of football is the foundation of a good season, knowing the fundamentals of who you are as a man is the foundation of a lifetime of good parenting. Fatherhood fundamentals start with men knowing the 7 Ms—Makeup, Master, Mission, Message, Motive, Method, and Model. Becoming an All Pro Dad will lead men on an eight-week exploration into the 7 Ms. These seven fundamentals will help every father expand his capacity to love and, in turn, lead in his

Manhood Restored Manhood will always be in crisis until Jesus returns. But in Christ, men can be restored to the undefiled image of God. We need more than quick pragmatic conclusions to change the shape of how men are developed. We need a big God to point us in the direction of the gospel as the vision for renewal. This eight-session Bible study explores the current state of masculinity, Jesus as the prototype man, and how the gospel can re-create us into what God intended us to be.

men’s fraternity classic What began as a weekly meeting of men searching for answers is now impacting over a million men in more than twenty thousand locations worldwide.

The Quest for Authentic Manhood The first of the series, this Bible study leads men along a journey toward real biblical masculinity while fostering deep spiritual, emotional, and personal growth. This study also takes a man inside himself to consider the forces that are shaping—or misshaping—his personal manhood.

Winning at Work & Home This Bible study focuses on the chief responsibilities men have as husbands, fathers, and breadwinners. Two mirrors are presented to help men evaluate how they are doing in life: the mirror of work and career, and the mirror of home and family.

The Great Adventure This final study helps men break free from the bondage of boredom and rediscover the exciting purpose that God has for them. Men will come to understand how they are wired and how to move forward with energy and enthusiasm to face the challenges of biblical manhood.

The Gospel Project The Story is waiting. Jump in. The Bible is not a collection of stories. It is one story, the story of God’s plan to rescue His people from sin and death. It is the story of redemption, the gospel message of Jesus Christ. And it’s our story, too. The Gospel Project is a Bible study resource for adults, students, and kids of all ages. But as leaders of the home, men especially need to dive deeply into God’s story of redemption through Jesus Christ. In every lesson, you will be immersed in the gospel. And you’ll learn—when the gospel works on you, you become part of the story, too, the very hands and feet in God’s gospel project.

He leads you? Are you a follower of Christ? Are you sure? When Jesus says, “Come, follow Me,” it is not an invitation to say a prayer. It is a summons to lose our lives. But have we?
