Sustaining Momentum Resources



AuthenticManhood -The mission of Authentic Manhood is to inspire and equip men to step up and live lives of truth, passion and purpose. Way too many men are simply confused about life. Instead of being the positive difference-makers they were made to be, confused men just create problems.

Courageous.  A 14-week study based on the movie Courageous. It was an effective tool for outreach and discipling. The study launched with the movie itself and continued using material from Provident films and Lifeway (available from a local Christian bookstore). The study concluded with a “Resolution Ceremony.”

 Stepping Up: A number of churches have used Stepping Up: A Call toCourageous Manhood, a 10-week video series produced by Family Life. It begins with an all-day event on a Saturday. Included was an invitation for the men come to the regular monthly meeting using the 10-week series.
