Overview

Basic Training For a Few Good Men presents scriptural principles to empower men to 'stand in the gap' and be 'watchmen on the wall' before the Lord for their families.

The challenges that men are facing in our culture today are staggering. Many men feel lost, without a solid moral compass. They feel helpless as to what position they are to play in a society that is constantly changing. Basic Training is a crash course in character. It's a no-holds barred study of the things that turn men of faith into men of God. In each session, Tim Kimmel shows men how they can flourish at work, draw the best out of their wives, make it easy for their kids to look up to them and find it a joy to serve in God's army.
