That Man is You! is an interactive, multimedia men's program focused upon the development of authentic male leadership.

 

Over the course of three years, That Man is You! successively concerns men in their relationship to God, to their spouse and to their children. That Man is You! is successful at attracting large numbers of men- including younger men still actively parenting- and then transforming their spiritual lives.

 

Indeed, independent research from the Faith Adviser to the Gallup Poll reveals That Man is You! to be one of the most life transforming programs ever studied. No matter where you are at in your spiritual journey, Jesus Christ wants to meet you there and take you further.
