33 The Series: A Man and His Design is designed to inspire and equip men to pursue authentic manhood as modeled by Jesus Christ in His 33 years on earth.
This first volume of 33 starts with meaningful insights into the current state of manhood, which will help men navigate through some realities that have created cultural confusion. It follows by unfolding God's mandates for all men and offering a clear definition of authentic manhood that will help men on their journey. Each participant will learn the four "faces" of manhood and how to anticipate and transition through the specific seasons of life.
All Pro Dad will lead men on an eight-week exploration into the 7 M's identified in the trade book of the same title. Using the power of visual media, the best of storytelling, and small-group principles and practices, this resource will help men in the area where our culture most needs them: fatherhood. All fathers want to be all pro dads; they want to be their child's hero. Sometimes they just don't know how. As in football, a father must start with the basics of what he needs to know—makeup, master, mission, message, motive, method, model—before he executes. These seven fundamentals will help every father expand his capacity to love and, in turn, lead in his most important job—being a dad.

If you're looking to disciple the men of your church, to provide a greater context for your existing men's ministry, or to start a men's ministry from scratch, this "Men's Ministry in a Box" is an ideal resource for you. Author Kenny Luck uses the term "sleeping giant" to describe the men in the body of Christ and the incredible untapped potential within. Pastors intuitively sense it but are sometimes unsure how to meaningfully engage and integrate the men of their churches. Sleeping Giant introduces a process to move men along an intentional spiritual pathway from "affiliated" to "activated." The Sleeping Giant model begins with a core team chosen by the pastor. Working together, this core team will create a vision for men based on the pastor's vision for the church while initiating their own spiritual path. Through the six sessions, this core team will go through the process of Get In, Get Healthy, Get Strong, and Get Going. Upon completion, they will be ready to lead other men through that same process, creating a multiplying effect that spills over into the rest of the church and the community.
