Jody Burkeen is the founder and president of Man Up God’s Way Ministries.
This ministry was birthed out of a desire to change the way Christian men
Jody’s self-described “Damascus Road Transformation” led him on a
journey to search the Scripture to find what he had been missing his whole
life, which was Jesus Christ. In this journey, the Word of God took over in a
way he never expected. Searching for men in the church to help him in his
walk, he found very little help. What he did find was men that needed the
same kind of help he did.
Through Man Up God’s Way Ministry, it is Jody’s hope that he can challenge
men to live a separated life on fire for God.
Man Up God’s Way, was founded in an effort to call “lukewarm” Christian
men to stop being “spiritual sissies” and start living up to the challenge
that God has laid out before us in His holy Word.
Too many men in the church are living a disobedient life by being
“lukewarm”. The consequences, for living this way, are extreme. Look at
what Jesus says “So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I
will spit you out of My mouth”. (Rev 3:16) Neither hot nor cold, is what
many Christian men have become.
In an effort to change the direction of Christian men, Man Up God’s Way is
challenging the manhood of these men. MAN UP doesn’t believe that being
a man means you can chew through steel or bend iron, but that being a
man means we will be disciplined in our relationship with Christ, in our
marriage, as a father, in our service at church, at work, in accountability to
one another and in discipleship.
It’s time, time to MAN UP!
