Be A ManBe A Man - This presentation was made to the men of Erie, Pennsylvania for 10 weeks and the inspiration for Fr. Larry Richard’s best-selling book “Be a Man”. Fr. Larry draws on his many years of ministry and his own experience as a man to inspire other men as men. In this presentation Fr. Larry challenges men to be strong, without putting on a mask of false strength or machismo. He calls men to admit their weaknesses and limitation, while urging them to find strength in faith and genuine love to overcome their sins and faults. He inspires men to become the true heroes they long to be – men of authentic courage, compassion and integrity.

Magnetic ChristianityMagnetic Christianity – by Gus Lloyd - You'll learn about the eleven attributes of a Magnetic Christian. These attributes, all clearly found in Scripture, are already part of who you are. God has built them into you. Magnetic Christianity will help you identify and enhance these attributes. As you grow in faith and holiness, people will naturally be attracted to you, and to Christ.

 

 

RiseRISE is a collaboration of individuals and organizations that believe it's time to cast a wide net to awaken today's man. Their goal is simple: to use powerful media as a tool to present the true path to freedom and peace by challenging men to live the fullness of their vocation every day; at home, at work, and in their communities. They are not teaching theology, and this is not another boxed program. They are giving men a battle plan for daily living, and walking alongside them each day. When men understand their profound dignity as sons of God, and are re-oriented towards what really matters, the impact on themselves and those around them will be significant.
