Support The True Man Experience

A few months back I moved my family to Franklin TN to be closer to the music city Nashville.  The question everyone seems to ask me since the move is, "Where are you going to church?"  Well it's not just one church. We've tried almost ten churches.  Although they all were trying to teach the Gospel and help folks they each had one terrible thing in common.  At each church we visited as I looked around at the congregation, I realized that the men sitting in the sanctuaries were disengaged, disinterested, and seemingly only there because their wife or girlfriend brought them, Is this our only way to connect with God?  Is Sunday morning service our only option to become men and our only path to shaping our masculinity in a positive way? 

After touring for over 15 years with Emery and having worked at two mega-churches, I have become burdened and angry at the way the church and culture have abandoned masculinity. Men, it seems, have become an enemy to the world.  We either boys or gamers or losers or not dating material. No one even teaches us any more about true masculinity and manhood.  We have lost the instruction from the older men and are left on our own to figure out how to navigate this life.  

After feeling convicted to be apart of the change rather than just complaining from the sidelines, I created The TrueMan Experience.  Each event involves one night in your town where we discuss our identity, our relationship with our fathers and other important people in our lives, and we fellowship. 

Also, I have started the TrueMan Experience Podcast.  I interview men who have come to the events and we get real.  The podcast is about revealing masculinity in a real way.  

I'd love your support! 

TrueMan: Seattle & Portland

I was sitting church and just people watching again instead of listening to the sermon. Half of my guy friends were doing the same or setting their fantasy football roster. Has the church and culture lost the men? What is masculinity today? Are you burnt out and full questions? That's why I'm leading the True Man Experience.

The True Man Experience - Nashville & Atlanta

Hey folks! So as some of you know I have been consumed with the topics of the church and masculinity for quite a while now. For someone reason for the last 15 years God has used me a ton and has allowed me to counsel and influence men. I've been reading and writing like crazy and I am working on a book about masculinity and the church. So I had, what I think, is a great idea.

I am going to do TWO nights of The True Man Experience. These will be living room events are limited to 15 men each. If for some reason they fill up quickly, I might stretch it to 20 but we'll decide that if and when we get there.

This will be intense. I'm expecting some seriously emotional depths to be reached, but I truly think these two nights will be helpful for us all.

There will be homework and prep and that you will have to do before you come and you will have to participate that night. Also, it will cost money. This isn't going to be fan get together or a show and I want people invested and ready for this to be taken seriously. These will be two very fun nights, but this is to learn and grow.

If this doesn't scare you off and you're interested then email me at tobybadchristian@gmail.com and I'll shoot you the details.
