The Mission

Welcome to Man After God!

If you are a good man who wants to be better, you’re in the right place.

Man After God is a blog for men who are seeking to grow in authentic, virtuous masculinity. My goal is to encourage men to pursue virtue, grow in relationship with God and, as a result, become better husbands, fathers, and overall better men.

New articles will be posted on this site every Wednesday and Friday. I will address a variety of topics that are specific to men in an effort to encourage them to meet the challenges of our culture. My hope is to begin a revitalization of authentic masculinity as God designed it to be. I firmly believe that our culture is in desperate need of loving fathers, devoted husbands, heroic priests, and virtuous men. Regardless of your stage in life, if that’s the kind of man you want to be, you need to start now - I pray this blog can be your starting point.
