33 The Series explores authentic manhood as modeled by Jesus in his 33 years of life on earth. Addressing the issues at the core of every man's journey, this resource provides men with an inspiring vision of Authentic Manhood.
This six-volume series based on the original Men's Fraternity Curriculum created by Dr. Robert Lewis has been updated, expanded and greatly enhanced. Each volume contains six 30-minute sessions and is taught by a multi-generational, racially diverse team. It works great in a weekly men's gathering, a small group format, or as a man-to-man discipleship tool.
Four Ways 33 The Series helps disciple men:
- 33 helps men see how Jesus Christ modeled manhood in his 33 years on earth. Over a dozen times in the gospels Jesus said, "Follow me!" Discipleship begins for each man when he responds to that call and follows Jesus. Men will discover what it looks like to follow Jesus in every season of life and learn how to leverage the power of mentoring.
- 33 challenges men to connect with a team of other men--one man sharpening another like iron sharpens iron. Men who live disconnected from their heart and disconnected from others merely exist. Experiencing 33 with a team helps men learn to engage with others on a substantive level.
- 33 encourages men to be intentional and accountable. Philippians 4:9 says, "What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me—practice these things..." Through each session of 33 men are encouraged to process their own Strategic Moves which will culminate in a personalized Action Plan.
- 33 challenges men to take the responsibility to lead other men, who also will lead other men. It's like Paul's instructions in 2 Timothy 2:2 "...what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also." With the ability to download video bundles of each volume, 33 The Series is a portable and powerful tool to help men make disciples who go on to disciple others.
