MEN at MAGNIFY
Men’s Studies – Fall Path
Our Battle Cry: A man ahead, behind, and shoulder to shoulder!
Mission: Always making disciples; that are making disciples
Vision: The double love command
We are humble followers building the discipleship culture at our church and beyond through the finished work of Jesus Christ, by yielding to the Holy Spirit, for the glory of the Father. We will live out the redemptive example of how Jesus discipled the 12 apostles. We will be poured into and pour out to others the love and acceptance of the Father. We will pick up our cross daily and follow Him. We will abide in Christ by resting in His finished work and walking in the Spirit through faith which is a gift to us as sons. We will hear and obey our Lord with a motivation of love.

33 THE SERIES
More than just a rally or a Bible study, 33 The Series provides men with an encouraging process that teaches them how to live lives of authentic manhood as modeled by Jesus Christ and directed by the Word of God. (Note: These are stand-alone books, so if you didn’t participate in book 1 or 2, please don’t hesitate to jump in now!)
Books 3 & 4
Book 3: A Man and His Traps equips men to go below the surface, to look deep into their hearts and explore some areas that are all too easy to ignore but that are critical in their journey toward Authentic Manhood.
Book 4: A Man and His Work begins by recognizing the obstacles and tensions that men can experience in their work-lives, and then unfolds a process that helps men move beyond the conventional perspectives of work that leads to dead ends and frustration. It leads them to a bigger, biblical vision of work that goes back to God’s original intentions.

Books 5 & 6
Book 5: A Man and His Marriage. There are many important relationships in a man’s life, and none deserve more care, focus, and investment than his relationship with his wife. A man’s marriage is meant to be and can be an incredible source of energy, joy and intimacy.
Book 6: A Man and His Fatherhood. Being a dad is one of the most important and influential roles a man could ever play in his life. But being a good dad doesn’t always come naturally.
