Finding Masculine Courage in a Stand Down World
Like a soldier awake, alert, ready for action as he responds to the STAND TO call knowing every moment is critical and his engagement is a necessity, so every man must know that he too is being counted on to courageously follow God’s specifically designed purpose and plan for his life. Men are hardwired for action, and we learn best by doing.
STAND TO invites men to accept personal challenges and live intentional, creed-driven lives in the presence of God (Coram-Deo), under His authority, and for His glory! Too often, silence, apathy, hesitation, or withdrawal from worthy engagements cause a man’s true identity and strength to be suppressed. STAND TO flips this narrative!
STAND TO shares from God’s Word our striking resemblance to our Warrior King who has also experienced intense suffering from missional living. This King offers backbone-stiffening courage in the face of fear, strength without compromise, and the model for sacrificial living despite the cost. Knowing our King goes before us in the battles and challenges enables us to confront and overcome them as well.
Each chapter provides men specific ‘courage challenges’ to DO. This is critical! Soldiers in battle are trained and equipped to courageously engage in the good conflict and move towards the action. Such present and engaged men are needed in their relationships and their significant calling from God. In the words of Thomas Jefferson, “Do you want to know who you are? Don’t ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you!”
STAND TO IS GOING TO LIGHT YOUR HAIR ON FIRE! This incredibly interesting and readable book is destined to reach a whole new generation of men who want their lives to count and make a difference. It’s that good!

Stand To was a hallmark of hope and heaven-sent pushing and probing. I am drawing upon its resources multiple times in a week and sometimes in a day.
