In the past several generations, many men in our western culture have lost the ability to take the reigns when it comes to leading in their lives, in their families and in their churches. For many reasons, men have placed the role of leader on their wives’ shoulders, a trend that has lead to confusion in our families and in society. Along with that, the media, our culture and a lost world has encouraged men to step back and allow this to happen. What does it mean for men to “step up to the plate” and lead their families in a biblical way?
Today we’ll meet Dean Roddy who has studied this trend over the years and leads men’s ministry at his church. He coaches men on what biblical manhood looks like. Dean and his wife Susan have been married for 23 years and have experienced significant change in their own marriage as Dean has walked this path.
