Kingdom Men Rising is a documentary film exploring what it means to be a real man in the midst of cultural trends in which there is confusion about masculinity. The film wrestles honestly with the unique questions and circumstances men face today. Kingdom Men Rising takes a journey that challenges men to rise above what we have become to lives of no more sitting on the sidelines, no more passivity, and no more excuses.

This film draws from the experiences of author, pastor and speaker Dr. Tony Evans to provide clarity on this topic. Matters of significance, priorities, race and passivity are addressed from a biblical perspective. Through the stories of several men, the film drives us toward God’s ultimate purpose for masculinity and design for men.

Featuring Grammy-award winning entertainer Kirk Franklin, Heisman trophy winner Tim Brown, former Dallas Cowboy quarterback Jon Kitna, Super Bowl winning coach Tony Dungy, NFL vice president Troy Vincent, author Priscilla Shirer, and others, Kingdom Men Rising provides an honest portrayal of today’s man that is countered by God’s original design.

Kingdom Men Rising is created as a means for speaking truth into a poorly defined and disoriented culture about the purpose and future of masculinity from the perspective of God’s original design. The hope of Kingdom Men Rising is to initiate generations of men to take up the mantle of God’s purpose for masculinity as facilitators of mercy, justice, and faith.

Here are new tools for making a more effective connection with younger men, both 'churched' and 'unchurched'.
