NOV 8th & 9th

Next Man Up is a contemporary take on an ancient practice — a rite of passage from boy to man. (Deadline for Registration: Nov. 1st)

In today’s culture, boys have no clear way of knowing when they’ve reached manhood. There are so many mixed messages and without a guide boys are left to figure it out on their own. You don’t have to look too far to see the old African proverb is correct: “If we don’t initiate our sons into manhood, they will burn the village down.” At Next Man Up, we believe that God places fathers, and father figures, in the ideal position to teach their boys what manhood is and invite them into the community of men. In other words, take their place on the team as the Next Man Up.
