2019 Workshop

Men's Ministry: Mentoring Boys into Manhood


Many fathers are relationally isolated and emotionally disconnected, leaving them at a loss for how to lead boys into manhood. Boys are left to their own devices, and turn to the world for its faulty definition of manhood. They soon find themselves acting out, bored, passive, and violent, just like so many other males in our culture. This workshop will address the culture’s attack on boys, the impact of biology on boys learning style, mentoring and educational principles to help boys develop into honorable men and concrete action steps moms and dads can take in the developmental process of boys.
