Unfortunately, many churches struggle to provide its urban members, much less those beyond their walls, with a tangible definition of a real man.
In partnership with ReachLife Ministries and Reach Records, Man Up is a new campaign, calling men in the hip-hop culture to true biblical manhood–summed up by leading courageously, rejecting passivity, accepting responsibility and pursuing humility, through repentance and faith in Christ.
