BetterMan FAQ

What is BetterMan?

BetterMan is a Christian organization that helps men unleash the better man inside them. The curriculum is an 11-week group study on the essentials of biblical manhood and how men can live it out at home, at work, with friends, and with God. Learn more on About Us or our How it Works page.

Who is BetterMan for?

BetterMan is for men of all ages, beliefs, and backgrounds. You can take part in BetterMan as a participant or a group leader, depending on your age/season of life.

How is BetterMan free?

We're not here to sell you on anything - BetterMan Resources are free of charge. The financial investment to create BetterMan Resources and run the organization has been provided by generous donors. Why? We believe biblical manhood is that important and we wanted to make sure that lack of finances is never a barrier to any man who wants to learn about it. Our workbooks have a free downloadable version, but we also offer printed copies for your convenience sold at cost online

How is BetterMan different from other men’s studies?

BetterMan is unique in that it presents a specific, easily remembered, transferable definition of biblical manhood paired with practical application. It's a shorter study at 11-weeks, which makes for an easier commitment from men. It appeals to men in the community, not just men at church. It mixes younger and older men together. It offers four different video speakers with diverse backgrounds to choose from. We think you should check it out and let us know why you think it's different at!

What is covered during the 11 weeks?

From unpacking your past to planning your future, we cover it all in topics related to biblical manhood.

Why is BetterMan focused on just men?
