This was the first part of a two-part S2S Event called “God’s Design for Masculinity” held on April 20, 2024.

Also, see part 2 by Sam Baer.

Strength to Strength welcomed Sam Baer to discuss this relevant topic to our time: the proper role of men as God intentioned from the Creation.

How does society view masculinity and how does that relate to God’s design? How much has society influenced the church in regards to masculinity?

Join us as we discover God’s design in the scriptures for men. My goal in this talk is to show that only in Christ can a man be the man God created him to be.

An interactive question-and-answer period follows.
