Kingdom Leadership Institute presents -Biblical Manhood, Bible Study for men!
C. S. Lewis wrote that the disparate strands of manhood– fierceness and gentleness–can find healthy synthesis in the person of the knight and in the code of chivalry. Here these competing impulses–normally found in different individuals–find their union.
LOCATION: Bible Way Church, 2800 Gurley, Waco TX
DATE & TIME: May 9, 2011, Main Conference Room, 7pm – 8:30pm

The crisis of our times is a crisis of leadership, or the lack thereof. Biblically, God judges and restores nations based on the leaders He raises up or removes. In light of these truths, the demand for godly, righteous leaders is not optional. The vision of KLI is to identify, equip, and send forth the next generation of manly leaders. America needs leaders who will become the repairers of the breach and the restorers of right paths to dwell in (Isaiah 58:12 & 61:4). In the time of moral, ethical, and spiritual crises, new leaders will emerge. Do you long to be one of them?
STUDY GOALS: Embrace four Biblical manhood principles: Real men (1) reject passivity, (2) accept responsibility, (3) lead courageously, and (4) expect the greater reward. Deep in his heart, every man longs for a battle to fight, an adventure to live, and a beauty to rescue. These principles, if followed, prevent passivity in men from becoming a significant problem in our society.

God Give Us Men
By Josiah Gilbert Holland
God, give us men! A time like this demands
Strong minds, great hearts, true faith and ready hands;
Men whom the lust of office does not kill;
Men whom the spoils of office cannot buy;
Men who possess opinions and a will;
Men who have honour; men who will not lie;
Men who can stand before a demagogue
And damn his treacherous flatteries without winking!
Tall men, sun-crowned, who live above the fog
In public duty and in private thinking;
For while the rabble, with their thumb-worn creeds,
Their large professions and their little deeds,
Mingle in selfish strife, lo! Freedom weeps,
Wrong rules the land and Justice sleeps!
