Q: What makes GO different from other resources?
A: We have incorporated into GO all the best practices we’ve learned from 30+ years of working with churches. We believe wholeheartedly that GO—by itself—will jumpstart your ministry to men. It’s a leadership recruitment strategy with practical steps to build a leadership team that’s dedicated to men’s discipleship. And to help you get started discipling your men right away, we include a four-week DVD group study for them.
But we haven’t stopped there. When you order GO, you aren’t just getting a box; you’re getting a person—a Guide—to walk alongside you every step of the way. Our Area Directors around the country stand ready to support you at no cost to your church.
Q: Who is this resource designed for?
A: This resource is designed to help a passionate leader jumpstart his church’s men’s discipleship efforts, starting with recruiting a team of leaders to help him.
GO is ideal for the those ministries just getting started, those that are stuck doing “the same old things”, or those that are looking to be more strategic and effective with their men.
Q: Is this a curriculum?
A: GO does include curriculum for the men in the church called GO: The Journey to Biblical Manhood, a brand new video-based study with a corresponding Guidebook. However, this is just one component of the GO process.
As a whole, GO will help a leader build and train an effective leadership team, engage men through a simple event, and move men into a four-week group Bible study. We provide all of the training and planning tools for the leaders to accomplish this.
Q: Will my church need anything else besides the GO: Jumpstart Your Ministry to Men box?
A: Although the GO box includes a sample Guidebook for the men’s study for each leader to use, the church will need to order additional Guidebooks for the men participating in the four-week study. These can be ordered at a later date, once the church has some idea of how many men will participate.
In the Leader Workbook, we provide step-by-step instructions for engaging men in the group study. In fact, we’ve helped churches get more than 75,000 men into groups just like these ones and we tell you exactly how this proven process works!
Guidebooks are just $7.50 each when ordered in packs of 10. Some churches choose to provide these to their men at no cost, while others have each man reimburse them. At Man in the Mirror, we recommend asking men to put some skin in the game! Experience has shown us that both interest and commitment increase when men are invested.
Q: How long does the GO process take?
A: GO is a nine-week process. Prior to this, the key leader has just a bit of pre-work to do in his Facilitator Workbook to ensure a smooth ride for his leaders along the way!
The nine-week timeline consists of an initial vision-casting meeting to recruit leaders, three weeks of Leader Classes, a simple men’s event, and four weeks of the men’s study.
Ultimately, the process your church is going to learn and put into practice is one that will continue to grow your ministry LONG after these nine weeks are over. And we’ll be there to help your team be successful.
