How to Disciple Men (feat. Chris Harper)

Chris Harper of Betterman.com talks with us about the modern perceptions of gender and the confusion surrounding masculinity in our contemporary society. He critiques the progression in our country from a need for men to the questioning of what even defines a man. Chris takes us through a journey towards reclaiming manhood through biblical teachings, mentorship from older generations, and active participation in communities. Men simply need other men to guide them through intentional discipleship towards living as constructive contributors in our society and to become the protective “wall” to their families.

Discovering Modern Manhood: A Transformative Journey

The script narrates a personal story of attending a Lyle Lovett concert in 2011, which transitions into a life-changing revelation of impending fatherhood. Exploring the speaker's initial preference for a son and subsequent joy at discovering they would have a daughter, the narrative shifts to a broader discourse on modern perceptions of gender and the confusion surrounding masculinity in contemporary society. It critiques the progression from a need for men to a question of what defines a man, attributing current societal confusion to a lack of clear paths to manhood. Offering a solution, the speaker outlines a journey towards reclaiming manhood through biblical teachings, mentorship from older generations, and active participation in communities. This pathway includes invitations to transformation, clear definitions of masculinity, overcoming juvenile thinking, dedicated training, and finally, recognition and commissioning into responsible manhood. The message emphasizes the necessity of guiding men through intentional discipleship towards living as constructive societal contributors, akin to being a protective 'wall' around their communities.
