A Manhood Study Based On The Lord's Prayer

Do the young men in your life know how to be godly men?
Are you ready to help them take the next step in their manhood?

Kingdom Power Glory is a groundbreaking manhood study, based on the Lord’s Prayer to help all young men in their manhood journey, regardless of their story. It is aimed specifically at older men training young men but it will be a great tool for a man at any age. We recommend it for fathers raising sons and youth pastors teaching male students starting at age 13.

This 10-session DVD driven study (each DVD is 10-15 minutes) is intentionally masculine to raise the bar for young men who find church, or their faith experience to be a bit feminized; men who want to understand true biblical masculinity. It respects and honors all men by refusing to soft pedal the message of Jesus!

When you have completed this study with your young men, they will have wrestled with some of the meatiest meat of the Word and the deep things of God. It is a dangerous course to take because it is designed to bring real life change, not just a fun time. By joining the men in this study, you will be walking with sincere men who want the truth and the way of life it produces. Kingdom men, just like you!

 

For His Kingdom, His Power and His Glory!
