We live in the midst of great confusion about what it means to be men,
when any expression of masculinity can feel unsafe for fear of being branded toxic.
But in the person of Jesus God became a man.
He was not pretending, or faking it, or playing it safe. And so in him we find perfect masculinity: a true
man, yet free from the all-too-real sin and stain of men we see all around us.
It’s as we look to him that we find the truth we need to live as men of God. We find hope in the face of our failure. We find truth in the face of our confusion. We find power in the face of our weakness. And most wonderfully, we find love that sets us free.
Come and join us as we spend a day together as men looking at the best man who has ever lived.
Jonty is pastor at the Globe Church in central London. He is married to Linda and loves being a dad to three sons. He also loves any opportunity to teach about the glory of Jesus from the Word of God.
Daf became a Christian at university and after teaching geography for 6 years trained to become a Pastor. He loves telling people about Jesus and helping others to do so as well.
He is married to Boo and they have 7 children which is why they’re perpetually tired. He likes to think of himself as Welsh but grew up in Guildford. He enjoys eating more than jogging which means that his desire to be the next Jason Bourne is unlikely to be realised.
