In order to establish a culture of strong men, we have identified 7 traits that must be present and active in our lives. This culture has done it's very best to redefine what manhood should look like. As we turn to God's Word, we can see that this role has already been defined and what the expectations are. As we grow in each of these traits, our lives will have the purpose God intended for all of us. Our job is to know who we are and, in turn, live our lives accordingly.
When these 7 characteristics are are true in our lives, we will be in the strongest position for our God, our families and our churches.
