Partners and Friends

Some of the organizations that have helped us the most


Several individuals and organizations have been crucial to the establishment and growth of this ministry. We would still be stuck in neutral if it were not for their positive influence on us personally and on the ministry. Read below to learn more about them and their impact on Manhood Journey.

Mike Owens – Partner, TBD Design

Mike is a talented and experienced graphic designer. He has spent most of his career delivering high quality branding and design work – and he took several months of nights and weekends to create the brand palette and all core design elements for Manhood Journey. If you need a great designer with a bizarre fascination with the Cincinnati Reds, Mike is your man. You can reach him at mowens@tbddesign.com.

Reba Bangasser – Graphic Designer

Reba came along at a crucial time for Manhood Journey. We had a bunch of modules to edit and create and nobody to help. She jumped in immediately, delivering efficient and professional work on very tight timelines. We are forever indebted to this speedy and helpful lady. If you need some great design work done even faster than you think possible, reach out to Reba at rebareneedesign@gmail.com.

Southeast Christian Church

Southeast Christian is the home church for many of those in Manhood Journey leadership. While this ministry is not “sponsored” by Southeast Christian, we are deeply grateful for the oversight of several key staff members and for the influence this church has had in our lives. Southeast’s vision is to be a praying church who reaches out and challenges everyone to follow Jesus completely. And one key strategy of the church is to build spiritually healthy homes by equipping Godly men to lead and pray for their family. We are blessed to have such a faithful church home in which we can grow, serve and pray.

Trail Life USA

Trail Life USA is a Christian adventure, character, and leadership movement for young men. The K-12 program centers on outdoor experiences that build a young man’s skills and allow him to grow on a personal level and as a role model and leader for his peers. Manhood Journey’s content and study guides are used exclusively within Trail Life’s sixth to eighth grade spiritual development program.

YouVersion

YouVersion has accepted several Manhood Journey’s Bible Reading Plans for fathers. YouVerision is a free Bible on your phone, tablet, and computer. It is a simple, ad-free Bible that brings God’s Word into your daily life. You can view our fatherhood Reading Plans in Partnership with YouVersion here.

Michael Mack

Michael Mack has been involved in small group leadership for nearly 25 years, serving as a small group minister in churches in Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, and Idaho. He founded SmallGroups.com, now owned and operated by Christianity Today. Mike leads small group conferences and does other small group training, consulting, and coaching in churches across the United States and internationally.
