Make a Courageous Commitment

Make A Courageous Commitment

You've experienced the power of COURAGEOUS. You've stood up and said, "I will!" The question becomes, now what?

To become a God-honoring father takes time and understanding. Churches, small groups, and men's ministries have found The Resolution for Men book and the Honor Begins at Home small group study to be great resources in helping men go deeper into the themes of COURAGEOUS.

From there, a Resolution commitment ceremony becomes a natural step. Encourage the men of your group or congregation to publically make a stand: "As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord."
