For over 40 years the Christian Men’s Network has been a highly effective global movement of pastors and leaders dedicated to training men toward their roles as servant-leaders in their families, church, and culture. The foundational truth of this international movement is that “Manhood and Christlikeness are synonymous.”Today, CMN has become a human justice mission with a goal to end child abuse and trafficking by changing the hearts of men worldwide. CMN’s “Global Fatherhood Initiative” is reaching into new nations every year operating on the belief that “every child deserves a loving dad.” Based on the direction of the Apostle Paul when he taught his young charge in 2 Timothy 2:2 to “Commit these truths to faithful men, who will teach others also.”
The CMN ministry has trained over a million leaders in 138 nations, and the multiplication of that thrust continues strong today.

Founded in 1990 by Coach Bill McCartney, Promise Keepers (“PK”) is one of the biggest movements of God in the history of the Church. Focused on helping men live with integrity, PK touched the lives of seven million men through its national conferences.
