The Lion Within Us - Leadership for Christian Men 

Christian men are in a battle for their lives. Satan will do everything possible to destroy them.

Our main focus lies within three categories: Health (Mental/Physical), Wealth (Careers/Finances) and Self (Husbands/Fathers/Brothers in Christ). By sharpening these areas of our lives, we can find the strength needed to stand firm in our faith and unleash the Lion Within.
