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're here to help you become your best version, giving you the tools you need 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.

Friday's podcast is Equipping Men in Ten - a ten-minute, laser-focused teaching from our host 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.

Matt Hughes is widely considered among the greatest fighters in the history of MMA. He is a two-time UFC Welterweight Champion, UFC Hall of Fame inductee, and NJCAA Hall of Fame inductee.

         Matt ended his UFC career 45-9. During his tenures in the Ultimate Fighting Championship, Hughes put together two separate six-fight winning streaks, defeated all the available opposition in the welterweight division, and defended the belt a then-record seven times. In May 2010, Hughes became the eighth inductee into the UFC Hall of Fame.

          During his reign, Hughes was considered the #1 pound-for-pound mixed martial artist in the world. He was also regarded by many as one of the greatest welterweight fighters of all time, as well as one of the greatest pound-for-pound fighters in the sport's history.

          In 2008, Hughes published his autobiography, Made in America, which made the New York Times bestseller list. 

          I love this part, “Hughes has no nickname, although because of his successes against Gracie Brazilian jiu-jitsu practitioners such as Royce Gracie, Renzo Gracie, Ricardo Almeida, and Matt Serra, people often refer to him as "the Gracie Killer".
