Man Maker Project

Boys are Born. Men are Made.

Father is a verb, and fathering is the highest calling of God on men. Man Maker Project is a guide for fathers to intentionally usher their sons into godly manhood.

Now more than ever, the reality of unfinished men confronts us at every turn. Without intentional fathering, a boy’s core question Am I a man? forever echoes in his soul. Every boy needs to hear his father’s clear yes in response. While many fathers know they should do something for their maturing sons, they have little idea how to create such an initiatory process.

Now Available!

Man Maker Project offers a practical roadmap that equips fathers to create a unique, modern-day masculine initiation experience for their sons. Rather than a single event or ceremony, fathers can guide their boys through a yearlong process, with the support of a cadre of hand-selected men. This book also challenges fathers to investigate their own stories, as God’s mutually redemptive design is for us to be fathered ourselves as we father our sons.

Through this modern-day rites of passage process, fathers fulfill their calling, sons find their footing, and society receives solid men ready to strongly and kindly restore the world.
