I’m excited to share some news with you. I am embracing a calling to a forgotten people group.
For the last couple of years I have had a burn in me to in invest young men (19-30) and I have really approached it unintentionally. My life, since 18, has largely been dedicated to youth work (teenagers), but I have said that our forgotten generation were kids who graduate out of high school and are lost. They are often left to wander with no shepherd. And more often than not, they wander with no earthly father.
What I found was these young men began to walk into my life and I was able to mentor them. Many of them now even consider me their earthly father. ( I can’t tell you how that touches the core of who I am ).
Recently I have spent considerable time reflecting, praying, and seeking direction and have decided to create something for this forgotten group. It will begin as a blog and website, continue with a podcast, coaching, regional events and expand into more as God leads.
This new venture will be evangelistic at its core, offering practical daily advice for men (19-30+), with life lessons and tips from both Christian and secular experts, but offering the invitation to faith in Christ.
It’s called “Better Man University.”
Better Man University will call men everywhere to be better students, friends, husbands, citizens, employees, and, yes, Christ followers too.
I hope you will join in the excitement here, with a comment or a share, or both and offer a prayer for this forgotten group. And, if you are so inclined to partner up with me, send me a message! Go to www.BetterManUniversity.com to learn more.
And for those wondering, I will continue my volunteer work with teenagers, my podcast for youth workers, and my resource sites (MinistryDownloads.com and MinistryPerks.com) will continue to serve leaders everywhere!
May this year be our banner year!
