is an Urban Mission Project.
envisioned to be an Evangelistic and Service
focused Movement in Urban America.
It is evangelistic in that it will
minister to and bring healing to the hurts and
the trauma in the souls of our men. To see
their lives transformed and healed from the
deeply buried wounds.
It is service oriented in that it will
encourage our men to be more of a presence,
empowered and engaged as they bring themselves
to bear in voluntary or paid service in the
inner workings in their neighborhoods, their
communities and their cities.
Once this healing and transformation has taken
place, our men will feel good about themselves
and be positive role models and influencers in
the cities where they live. The result will be
healthier and safer families, homes,
neighborhoods, communities and cities.

They still have
their manhood and need to exert or demonstrate
their manhood in some manner, but in so many
ways because of society and the racism that
exists, there is much pressure put on African
American men to not be the men God made them to
African-American men still have our sense of
pride, male egos, need for hunter-animal
instinct to be expressed, need for significance
and accomplishments in life. We have and take
pride in our responsibilities as men, provider,
fathers, husbands, mentors and leaders in our
will engage in conversations to begin the
healing process in men, especially
African-American men to address the
hopelessness, the acting out, the aggression,
the anger so that we will see our men being the

Let us reverse
this epidemic onslaught against the
African-American man and walk with pride and
dignity as we Man-Up to change our world,
present and future. Men, the time has come to
