Who are we?

Being a man in today’s culture is a challenge. Men’s Fraternity is a place where the men of CalvaryMac can intentionally come alongside one another and challenge each other towards authentic manhood. Our mission is to equip men through biblical studies, pastoral care, and mentoring opportunities through weekly connections.

As CalvaryMac Men, our goal is to live out our faith in our homes, workplace, church, and community. To “live different,” to live according to what God calls men to be, not what our culture says.



Men’s Fraternity Classic is the original curriculum authored by Dr. Robert Lewis that helped launch the Authentic Manhood movement. Men’s Fraternity Classic is a series of three one-year-long studies, beginning with The Quest for Authentic Manhood (24 weeks), followed by Authentic Manhood: Winning at Work and Home (16 weeks), and concluding with The Great Adventure series (20 weeks). More than just a rally or a Bible study, Men’s Fraternity provides men with an encouraging process that teaches them how to live lives of authentic manhood as modeled by Jesus Christ and directed by the Word of God.

Men’s Fraternity was designed to help men come together and strengthen each other through weekly sessions that combine biblical teaching and small group interaction.

These time-tested resources have been used all over the world to equip men to make their pursuit of noble manhood a lifelong priority. Church leaders and lay members are using the series to energize the men of their church and to connect with men in the community. Many men also use the series in their own personal pursuit of authentic manhood.
