A group of shepherds were invited by angels to go and see the baby laying in a manger. Thirty years later, He invited a group of men who were just having a normal day at work to “Follow me.” Those words struck a chord in the hearts of these men. Because of the invitation of Jesus and a group of men who said “yes” – you and I rejoice in the life of Christ two thousand years later.
In a time when the world is talking about the ways men abuse women or abandon their families, when men say “yes” to Jesus then women are honoured and families are restored. Jesus is still inviting men to follow Him, and we have the awesome privilege to carry that message forward.
Will you help extend that invitation even further?
I invite you to help make the invitation of Jesus known to even more men across Canada. Our vision is to Leave No Man Behind—to see every man becoming, growing, and living as disciples of Jesus Christ. Together, we can Leave No Man Behind!
