Authentic Manhood

Authentic Manhood celebrates its 17th year anniversary this year.   As a fellowship dedicated to addressing the needs and challenges of men, Authentic Manhood uses a Biblical framework to help men of all ages and stages of life understand how to work through the  challenges of manhood.  When first launched, in an effort to entice men to attend, the ministry went by the named, “Boys Night Out.”   It wasn’t long before the fellowship grew to in the basic understanding that all men face similar challenges in life, and every man’s life tells a story which often times parallels the lives of other men.  This understanding united men from all walks of life.  The fellowship became real.  Men simultaneous saw the need to change the name once more to reflect the reality of their transformation in God.  God revealed what it meant to be an authentic man. Thus, the name “Authentic Manhood” was birthed.

We are excited about the move of God upon the men of First Baptist South Orange.  Authentic Manhood is a great way for men to feel connected.  It provides a space for men to engage and reflect on life’s journey under the cloak of thought provoking and insightful sessions.  We share curriculum and resources every man, married, single, or engaged needs in his library.  All men are encouraged to join us.

Come discover the battle plan of unleashing God’s power in your life as He equips you to become a man after His own heart.  Learn to be the victor in your personal life, spiritual life, and rediscover your overall happiness in life.

Authentic Manhood meets weekly, on Saturdays, from 8am until 10am.  Check us out in a fear free, worry free, pressure free, and trusting environment designed just for men.  Join the movement today!
