TESTIMONIALS

Men at the Cross brought a collision of God’s grace and my “stuff”, stuff that at times manifested itself through shame, a critical spirit, blame, judging, anger, and isolation. Actually, I kept all of this hidden for the most part, except for those special people, my family. MATC has brought such incredible freedom and grace to my relationships. Our marriage is functioning at a level previously impossible because we are so much more aware of our personal stories and each other’s story. This has allowed me to be much more patient and grace-filled and empathetic with the people to whom God has called me to minister. I cannot imagine pastoring my present church without having the experience provided by Men at the Cross.
