THE change agent.

It’s all God, but He chooses to use us. He is at work and His presence changes everything. 

God knows how to get the job done. When was the last time that you encountered God in a way that uprooted everything in you that wasn’t His best for you? How recently did God break you and then put you back together in a better way?

You might be right where God wants you and that is a great place, but I guarantee you; there are guys around you that need God to get hold of them. They need to encounter Him. We all need that.

This week I’ve been in Acts 9 reading about how Jesus gets a hold on Saul, takes Him to the ground, and changes his life forever. AWESOME. But, here’s the part that hit me—God crushes Saul then sends Ananias to reach out to his new brother immediately after. God chose to include Ananias to reach Paul.

Get ready to be taken apart and put back together in a better way. The Act Like Men Conference is just weeks away!

1 Corinthians 16:13-14



Look around, what’s so desperately needed where we live are men who embrace all that God created them to be.

Men who are loud and ruthless about their own sin, but patient and full of grace in leading others. Men who long to follow God without limits and meet the needs of those around them without hesitation.

To get there we need radical surgery. It’s time to cut deep and get it all, and not be afraid of what that means. We challenge you to join thousands of men for a two-day conference this fall-to step up with us and Act Like Men.

Sacrifice for Success

I often hear this about successful leaders and can’t help but wonder how true it is — “You don’t know what they sacrificed to get to where they are.” And I can’t help but wonder, was it worth it?

A friend recently shared the “balanced wheel” for measuring if he is on track to leaving a legacy. This isn’t about Klout — it’s about impact, health and balance. It’s about living a life worth remembering. Is what you hold as “successful” really how you want to be remembered? By your family, friends and colleagues?

The tool above is a great way to track and hold yourself and each other accountable. To use it mark on each axis your current impact, health & investment from 0 (lowest) to 10 (highest) then connect each mark. The end result will hopefully be a circle and the goal is that it would roll. If not where do you need to invest? Are you sacrificing important areas of your life to focus on one or two other areas? Is it worth it?
