The Men in the Arena podcast is designed for Christian men in the stress bubble of life: married, with kids, building your career and trying to follow God and lead your family well. We'll help you become your best version, equipping you to honor God in your marriage, parenting, work, church and community!

Monday's podcast is a high-octane interview with an expert in the realm of masculinity and Christian manhood, with authors like John Eldredge, Gary Chapman, Gene Getz, Patrick Morely, and Emerson Eggerich. We read their books and boil down their teachings into a powerful interview to help you learn from their expertise.

Thursday's podcast is Equipping Men in Ten - a ten-minute, laser-focused teaching from Jim Ramos to help you become your best version of a man.

Your host is bestselling author and speaker Jim Ramos. Jim has authored 9 books, including the bestseller 'Strong Men Dangerous Times: 5 Essentials Every Man Must Possess to Change His World', 'Tell Them: What Great Fathers Tell Their Sons and Daughters', ‘The Field Guide: A Bathroom Book for Men’, and the 5-book Strong Men Study Guide men's small group curriculum. Jim's high-energy storytelling and conviction will call you out, build you up, and motivate you to change.

The Men in the Arena are calling you into the Arena of manhood. We're calling you out of the faceless, nameless bleachers, and calling you UP to be the best version of you. Because when a man gets it, everyone wins.

Kenneth Joyner is the director and co-founder of Boys With A Purpose, a nonprofit After-school Mentoring Organization for young boys. The organization has been serving the Charleston, South Carolina area since 2016. Growing  up without his father sparked a passion to help young men develop their gifts and to ultimately find their life’s purpose. The passion started in 1998 when he led a youth group at his church in Baltimore, Md. Boys to Men was the beginning of a lifelong mission to help build and develop strong young men. In 2016 this journey led him to Memminger Elementary School where he helped to start the organization he now runs. 

Kenneth structured his book Without A Father: From Fear To Faith, around twenty core principles of being a father figure, which isn’t necessarily about being the biological father (although it can be), but it’s about playing the role of a father figure. These principles will be called W.O.W for Words of Wisdom.

W.O.W #10 Don’t Worship Money.
