The aim of this book is to encourage men
to stand up, defend, and advance the next man forward
to revive, construct, build, and make the better place
where he is stationed, to enrich and enlarge those
under his watch and care.
Every man is called to help another man to move beyond mediocre.
Disciple Men to move beyond the norm. Mentor Men to encourage
one another. Enable Men to go higher. Lead Men into service,
mission, and ministry.
Who am I? Why am I here? What is my purpose?
What is the reason for my being?
These and other questions seek to give definition
to a Man’s being and becoming in the world.
These are the questions explored in Lead Up.
Our mission is to help the Next Leader Up
make “significant progress.” Our challenge is to continue to work
with and build biblical confidence in those
who must carry on the challenges that are ahead.
The first six chapters of this book are biblical foundations
and lessons that can be taught to Men to build them into Men
who move into the purpose of God’s Greater and Better.
The next chapters deal with how Mature Men
can help build young boys into Men who Build the World.
The book shows men how to be greater in their lives
through personal stories and by using sports and the Bible
to illustrate points of growth and development.
Men are encouraged to do the necessary things
to Bless the World and those in it. The goal is to grow
beyond average to Do Something Extraordinary for God and the World.
What does it mean to “Man Up”?
“Manning up” is looking someone straight in the eye
and taking responsibility for your actions.
“Manning Up” is taking men who have been set in “reserve”
and bringing them up to the front, training them for leadership
at all levels, and getting them ready for active duty in God’s work.
“Manning Up” is preparing and putting the right Man
in the right place so he can become a Hero in his own life and the lives of others.
The Mission of A Father’s Business is to give Men a Biblical foundation
of Fatherhood that develops Men into Becoming RemarkAble fathers.
“The Man and Father that you are becoming results from
the thoughts, ideas, morals, and attitudes of the home, community,
and psycho-social environment into which you were developed.”
This book will define the difference between being a male
and being a ManFather and more.
This book begins by asking, “Why should any Man desire to Help
the Pastor and the Church family through the office of a deacon?”
It further explores the “Must Be of the Deacon” with both biblical,
spiritual and social qualifications of service in the church
and assisting, not hindering the Pastor in the work of ministry.
The question is, “Why did the apostle Paul bring forward
the work of and the word deacon in 1 Timothy 3
then and what is its spiritual and social meaning now?”
