This is my 32nd year of ministry to men around the world and this is the most comprehensive and effective material I have found.
-Leonard Albert, Director, LifeBuilders Men's Ministry, Church of God
Our church has embraced a theme of ministry to and through men that is best captured by the title of this book...No Man Left Behind.
-Danny Singleton, Men's Ministry Leader, First Baptist Church, Woodstock, Georgia
The lack of effective blueprints for ministry to men in the local church has been a major problem for a long time. Good news—we now have one. No Man Left Behind is a must read for all pastors and men's ministry leaders.
-Vince D'Acchioli, Founder, On Target Ministries
This is the one book every pastor and church leader should read and then encourage their men to read and live, and we would see a mighty movement of God result!
-Phil Downer, President, Discipleship Network of America
Man In The Mirror jump-started our Men's Ministry in 2004 by providing a firm foundation through their Leadership Training Center and ongoing education and insight to build our ministry to men. Their training is the best investment our church has made: men are excited about coming to church and so are their women!
-W. Mark Shirley, Men's Ministry Director, The MET (Metropolitan Baptist Church), Houston, TX
The vision for men's ministry is not to have a men's group in every congregation! Morley, Delk, and Clemmer have nailed it--the vision is for every man to have a living, growing relationship with Jesus Christ; for every man to be a disciple! This book will give you tools to help make disciples of the men in your congregation and beyond.
-Doug Haugen, Director, Lutheran Men in Mission, Evangelical Lutheran Church in America
Two problems plague the church today: biblical illiteracy and lack of male involvement. No Man Left Behind helps solve the second problem by providing a paradigm for churches to develop mature disciples for Christ. Best of all the work is clear, readable, practical, and highly recommended. No Man Left Behind is a men's book for men.
-Paul A. Tambrino, EdD, PhD, Director, Adult and Theological Education, First Presbyterian Church of Maitland
In 2003, a friend from my church and I attended the Building a Sustainable Men's Ministry training in Orlando. It was an "AHA" moment for both of us! Pat, David, and Brett share concepts in this book that are "battle-tested." Apply them to your life and ministry with men. Believe me--they work!
-Brian Shuler, Men's Ministry Pastor, First Baptist Church of Atlanta
Our association with Man in the Mirror has transformed our men's ministry...It's no longer business as usual. Our motto is: "Every man a leader, every man an influence for Christ, and every man needs a lift!" We may want to add a line: "And no man left behind!"
-The Reverend Dr. H. William Green, Associate pastor of First United Methodist Church in Cary, N.C., Recipient of the Ross Freeman Leadership Award in Men's Ministry (N.C. Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church)
At last!...A book that doesn't promise an irresistible men's ministry in five easy steps. It's hard work and someone--you--gets to do it. Revealing what they've learned from helping thousands of churches, Pat, David, and Brett offer an approach that will help you develop a unique--not cookie cutter--disciple-making ministry for men.
-Leary Gates, BoldPath Life Strategies
I had a chance to attend the Leadership Training Center at Man In The Mirror. I love the concept of building an all-inclusive ministry to men. If you want to start a ministry to men, start where they are. No Man Left Behind is a must read.
-Rex Tignor, People Matter Ministries
I brought my pastor and several other men to the LTC training classes. We gained tremendous insight into building a sustainable Men's Ministry at East Cooper Baptist Church here in Mt. Pleasant, SC. When we returned, we recruited a group of men and explained the system. We were so excited about what we saw at Pat's Bible study that we copied it. It has been a huge hit with our men. The ECBC "Man 2 Man" Bible study is regularly attended by over 90 men each week. The fruit of this effort has been wonderful. To God be the glory!
-Randy Bates, Director, Wood Partners
Men's ministry in our church is no longer defined as those who come to our men's events. Rather, men's ministry is defined by how we are able to disciple a man where he is at. No Man Left Behind is thankfully not another book giving seven steps that will ultimately lead to frustration, aggravation, and despair. Instead, if you will learn to walk with Christ and show others how to walk with Him as well.
-Malcolm H. Light III, Pastor to Adults, Grace Community Evangelical Free Church
No Man Left Behind provides a proven template for building an effective ministry to men. It is a valuable guide for moving from burned pancakes to disciplemaking.
-Len Ruffner, National Director, Christian & Missionary Alliance Men's Ministry
Many of us Montana share the vision of using Man in the Mirror to bring a credible message of Jesus to all the men in our state. Discipleship is not easy. Jesus never said it would be. No Man Left Behind provides us with many needed tools to work with. It is exactly what we need.
-Harrison Fagg, Montana Man in the Mirror
As the men of the church go, so goes the church. Most Christian denominations in America and Europe are in a serious decline. Men are absent and too many of those in the pews are sadly living as cultural Christians. No Man Left Behind holds the promise of being one of the seminal books of our time for the renewal and revival of Christian men, and for the Kingdom.
