This month’s theme is Activate, since we are kicking off a new season of Activate classes on May 19th at PBC…Open to anyone by the way!  In a world filled with busyness, finding clarity and purpose can often feel daunting. As men, we’re overwhelmed with messages about what it means to be successful, strong, and fulfilled. Heck, I’m the one sending most of those messages, but it’s because I know there’s more to life than being busy and overwhelmed! True fulfillment lies in discovering our identity in Christ and walking in alignment with His purpose and I know just the place where God will show up and make that happen…Activate is more than a class…It’s a transformative journey designed to help men hear God, understand their unique identity in Christ, and become part of a transformative community.

One of the core pillars of the Activate journey is learning to hear God’s voice in the middle of the chaos of life. Through prayer and intentional quiet time, men are equipped to tune into the still, small voice of God speaking to their hearts. This practice fosters a deeper intimacy with God and opens the door for the Holy Spirit to guide in every aspect of life.

Another core pillar to Activate is discovering participant’s specific and personal identity in Christ. By understanding who you are in Christ, you can find freedom from comparison, insecurity, and performance-driven living, embracing your true worth and value as beloved sons of God.

Lastly, but probable the most powerful aspect of Activate is the sense of community it fosters among men. Through small group discussions, shared experiences, and mutual support, participants journey together towards spiritual transformation. As iron sharpens iron, men in the Activate community challenge and encourage one another, creating a space where authenticity, vulnerability, and growth thrive.

As men, our identities are often shaped by external factors—our careers, relationships, and achievements. But true fulfillment can only be found when we anchor our identity in something unshakeable—our relationship with Christ. In Him, we discover our true worth, purpose, and calling. As we surrender our lives to Him, He leads us on a journey of transformation, guiding us into the fullness of who He created us to be.

Romans 12:2 (NIV)

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
