Our world is in desperate need of bold, passionate men of integrity. Yet such men aren't born, they're built, shaped and formed by God to enrich their families, church, and community. But what does this process look like? And how do we get started?

The answers are found in the story of Joseph, a humble shepherd who overcame tremendous odds to become an influential leader. It's here we discover the process that creates true men of God, where He works

Providentially, supplying everything we need in our journey
Strangely, often in ways that we won't understand
Slowly, building our patience and trust

God Built explores the defining spiritual process that makes men of God. You'll uncover the Biblical pattern for growth, gain insights into common frustrations and difficulties, and get equipped for the journey ahead.

Surrender yourself to Him. And become a man that's built to last.
