EQUIPS men to better understand from Scripture what their mission is

ENCOURAGES men because we fail so much

ENERGIZES men because our spiritual tank is often on “E”

EMPOWERS men to stay focused on honoring Christ with their lives

“I’m so excited about this new podcast because listening to podcasts is the way my generation gets all its information,” 24-yr-old passionate Christ-follower

The Mission Focused Men for Christ discipleship material was developed over 25 years in Gary Yagel’s life, taught to Marine Corps officers at Quantico through Officers Christian Fellowship, and shared in seminar form at the Presbyterian Church in America General Assembly and with thousands of Bible-believing men across the country. It is biblically based, grace-centered, kingdom-focused, application-oriented, and encouragement-driven. Best of all, it fits into men’s busy lives because it is right on their phones.

Dr. Gary Yagel is a former PCA church planter and senior pastor, the Executive Director of Forging Bonds of Brotherhood men’s ministry. He served with Man in the Mirror staff as a presenter of the No Man Left Behind seminar and over 10 years as his denomination’s Men’s Ministry Consultant. He is the author of Got Your Back, as well as Anchoring Your Child to God’s Truth in a Gender-Confused Culture (both available at Amazon) and has taught his seminary course, Making Missional Disciples as a guest professor at RTS DC.

The Mission Focused Men for Christ free, weekly podcast is available through these podcast directories: Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, iHeartRadio, Google Podcasts. You can also listen to it at Gary’s website: forgingbonds.org.
