Broaden your vision to disciple every man (not just limited to your own church) to be godly.

Similar to John Eldredge’s big 3 (battle to fight, adventure to live, a beauty to rescue) in Wild at Heart, Morley’s book lists his big 3 C’s (categories of what men want): a meaningful CAUSE to give our lives to, COMPANION(s) to share with, and a CONVICTION or belief system that makes sense of our lives.

Contains valuable insights about men and some very helpful, practical tips for Creating, Capturing, and Sustaining momentum in any ministry.
