Men’s Fraternity Coming To Southlake

By John Ballenger

We will be hosting a Men’s Fraternity in the Southlake area this fall.  Imagine the transforming power of men coming together to honestly examine their lives and take the courageous steps necessary to embrace authentic manhood on a journey to become who God intends them to be.

When men connect in life-changing ways, a powerful ripple effect touches families, workplaces, and the church. Deeper connections with God and other men inspire participants to connect more meaningfully in all facets of their lives. They climb beyond the walls of isolation and aspire to a biblical viewpoint marked by integrity, boldness, and compassion.  That is the goal of Men’s Fraternity.

Through this powerful series, men learn to reject passivity, accept responsibility, lead courageously, and expect God’s greater reward.

Men’s Fraternity……what is it?
Men’s Fraternity is a series of three one-year-long studies, beginning with The Quest for Authentic Manhood, followed by Authentic Manhood: Winning at Work and Home, and concluding with The Great Adventure series. More than just a rally or a Bible study, Men’s Fraternity 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.  It’s an environment of openness and brotherhood, like back at the fraternity in college, only more helpful and spiritually constructive.

How did it start?
Men’s Fraternity was created by Robert Lewis, pastor-at-large of Fellowship Bible Church in Little Rock, Arkansas and author of Raising a Modern Day Knight. It began in 1990 with 30 participants as Robert strived to connect with and challenge the men of his church.

We will be hosting a Men’s Fraternity in the Southlake area this fall.  Imagine the transforming power of men coming together to honestly examine their lives and take the courageous steps necessary to embrace authentic manhood on a journey to become who God intends them to be.

Over the years it has developed into a series of studies designed to engage the heart as well as the mind, stripping away the myths of manhood, and focusing on how each individual can be transformed into a true man of God. Now, more than 15,000 groups of men attend a weekly Men’s Fraternity meeting globally.

What’s the format?
The format is simple: Men come together for weekly 45-minute teaching sessions, followed by 30 minutes of small group interaction in an environment where men are free to talk openly and confidentially about what they heard and express mutual support for one another.

Why should I come?
Every man needs a “band of brothers” and the true power of Men’s Fraternity lies in bringing men together on common ground to learn together and listen to each other. Bonds of true God-centered friendships are formed as men encourage each other week- by-week to more fully embrace a godly view of manhood.

Men’s Fraternity in Southlake is sponsored by Southlake Baptist Church.
