How much does BetterMan Defined cost?
All BetterMan materials are free of charge. Our workbooks have a free downloadable version, but we also offer printed copies for your convenience sold at cost online.
How long is BetterMan Defined?

BetterMan Defined consists of 4 series; each series is 5 weeks long. The 4 parts of the study do not need to be presented in a particular order and can be sequenced at the discretion of the leader.

Can I do BetterMan Defined before the 11-week BetterMan Core Curriculum?

Yes, but we strongly recommend starting with the BetterMan Core 11-week Study before beginning BetterMan Defined since the curriculum builds upon that foundation.

Do I have to do BetterMan Defined with the same men from the 11-week Core Experience?

You can, but it’s flexible. We do recommend that everyone who is a part of your BetterMan Defined Group has completed the BetterMan 11-week Core Study to have the foundational knowledge to build upon.

Is BetterMan Defined designed to be led by a mentor?

Yes, similar to the BetterMan 11-week Core Study, BetterMan Defined is designed with a mentor and participant model in mind. We recommend having 2 leaders or “mentors” per ~6 men participating.

What size group is appropriate for BetterMan Defined?

Just like the 11-week BetterMan Core Study, BetterMan Defined is suitable for any size group, including a small group (3-8 men) or in a large church or ministry setting (50-500+ men).

How do churches use BetterMan Defined?

Churches can use BetterMan as an ongoing men’s ministry program to engage members and the community. First, they can offer the 11-week BetterMan Core Study, followed by 4 parts of BetterMan Defined. Churches can opt to offer all 31 weeks (11 weeks of BetterMan Core + 20 weeks of BetterMan Defined) over the course of 1, 1.5, or 2 years, depending on the amount of space between each series.

How is the meeting time structured?

We recommend allocating 60 - 70 minutes: 30 for watching the message followed by a quick break and then 30 for group discussion.

BetterMan is taught live or by a video speaker

Small groups choose one of our amazing video speakers to teach the weekly pre-recorded messages. BetterMan Speakers are different ages and have unique backgrounds and teaching styles, so you can choose which speaker works best for your group. Churches also have the option to teach live.

In 2004, soon after entering their new 600 seat sanctuary, Pastor Loya was recognized by the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference (NHCLC) and Third Day Believer’s Network (3DBN), as one of the most significant and successful Hispanic pastors in the United States of America. The year 2014 marked another significant moment in the life of the ministry, as Cross Church completed their 1,800 seat sanctuary.

His unique style and bilingual speaking ability has taken him all over the nation ministering in some of America’s largest churches. He has also ministered abroad in such places as Germany, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Costa Rica and several parts of Central America.

Aside from his pastoral duties, he serves as a Board Member of WIN Ministries and the National Hispanic Leadership Conference (NHCLC)-America’s Largest Hispanic Christian Organization that is leading the way in addressing issues such as poverty, healthcare, education reform, religious persecution, juvenile delinquency, etc.

“Having a small group of multiple generations within the BetterMan course, with each having their own wisdom, helped me overcome my trials.”
“After BetterMan, I’m more confident about what it means to be a man of God and how to encourage other men on their journey alongside me.”
“My group of guys were recovering from addictions and were attending church and AA meetings, but they had never participated in a group that was this transparent and had such practical, biblical application. BetterMan opened the door to one-on-one mentoring and deep relationships.”
