Frequently Asked Questions
How can a Man in the Mirror event impact my men?
All too often, men gather for a big, exciting event, only to return to work on Monday with no next step in their discipleship journey. While our desire is to help you create value among your men through a dynamic men’s event, we also want to show you how to capture that momentum through follow-up small groups. As men get into the Word of God and into relationship with other men, we believe God will sustain the change that is taking place in his heart, mind, and life. We refer to this plan as the Create-Capture-Sustain engine that fuels growth.
How long is an event?
Man in the Mirror events are approximately six hours long (Rock Solid Men is closer to seven hours) and typically take place on a Friday night and Saturday morning or all day on Saturday. They may also be adapted for a weekend retreat.
Who presents the event?
Most events are available in two formats–either as a Faculty-Led Event, using a qualified Man in the Mirror speaker, or as a You-Teach-It Event, where we equip you to present by providing speaker outlines, Power Point presentation templates, and videos to help you prepare.
How much does it cost?
The cost of the event varies, depending on whether you use one of our speakers or your own, as well as the size of the event package. Click here to see detailed pricing information. Regardless of the format, it is designed to break even financially and we provide a worksheet to help you determine your ticket price. The event may be paid for by credit card or by mailing in a check.
What does the church receive?
The church receives a detailed planning manual with timelines; full-color promotional posters, flyers, and cards; No Man Left Behind books for the leaders to use prior to the event; outlines for note-taking during the event; and curriculum for follow-up groups.
Will it help us get men into small groups?
On average, churches that do a Man in the Mirror event see more than two-thirds of attendees join follow-up groups BEFORE they leave the event, resulting in ongoing discipleship. We’ll show you how, using a simple strategy!
Will men have an opportunity to hear the central message of the gospel?
Our events include a time of prayer and an invitation to surrender or resurrender to Jesus Christ. On average, a third of attendees make this transformative decision.
What events do I have to choose from?
We currently offer four standard events: Rewired, Dads That Make a Difference, Rock Solid Men, and The Playbook: A Game Plan for Every Season. (As of Fall 2020, we also offer a brand new digital event package for Success That Matters!)
Can we do this event via webinar due to social distancing restrictions?
It is possible for your men to participate in this event using a program such as ZOOM. We recommend using the breakout-group function in ZOOM for the small-group discussion time after each teaching session. By assigning attendees to breakout groups, they will be with the same men each session. Then following the event, you would give men the opportunity to continue meeting for six weeks using the follow-up workbook, either on ZOOM or face-to-face. For more information about how this option might work for your church, please call Bryan Richardson at 407-472-2119.
How far in advance should I schedule our event?
Your team should reserve an absolute minimum of two months to plan and promote your event effectively. Three to four months is recommended.
I’m in! How can we be as effective as possible?
Following the event manual will help you be effective as you pray, promote, plan, and present. But if you want to impact ALL your men, make sure the event is part of a larger vision and strategy, using the Journey to Biblical Manhood, based on the No Man Left Behind Model.
