Godly Masculinity Proclamation Seeks Accountability, Clarity on Gender
Promise Keepers
June 3, 2024

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., June 3, 2024 /Christian Newswire/ -- Promise Keepers, one of the nation's largest and longest-standing men's ministries, announced today the launch of the Proclamation on Godly Masculinity. The proclamation seeks to establish where leaders and pastors nationwide fall in their position on masculinity, femininity, gender roles and most specifically, Godly masculinity and the role of men in our culture.
Written in collaboration with influential and esteemed Christian leaders such as Sam Rodriguez, A.R. Bernard, Gene Getz, Chad Hennings, Doug Stringer, David and Jason Benham and Wingmen Ministries, among others, the proclamation establishes 10 truths regarding masculinity, the unique callings God places on men, and the ways men must step up and lead in their churches, families and communities.
"The 10 specific responsibilities of a Godly man declared in this proclamation are not newly curated ideas," says Ken Harrison, Chairman of Promise Keepers. "Rather, they are an affirmation of Truth since the beginning in the Garden of Eden. Each affirmation is backed by scripture to serve as a reminder that this is not merely man-made, but supported by the Eternal Truth of scripture."
Harrison says the Bible details distinctive roles and responsibilities for men (masculine) and women (feminine) and that our current culture has been captured by the lies of Satan, confusing those roles and responsibilities. This confusion, he says, has led to moral decline, violence, disrespect of parents and elders and sexual perversion.
"The confusion surrounding these roles, unique to our time and culture, must be confronted and refuted by the church," says Sam Rodriguez, President of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference and a contributing author of the proclamation. "By blurring these roles, some men fail to embrace the masculinity for which they were created. Failing to do so dishonors women and the uniqueness with which God created them. This proclamation endeavors to restore the foundational aspects that define manhood and masculinity."

The lines between traditional gender roles have been blurred by various institutions such as media, entertainment and educators. Although the church cannot control their agendas, it is the responsibility of Christian leaders to refute that messaging and clearly communicate their stance on the matter.
"By not clearly acknowledging those unique roles, society has raised generations of men to be confused, apathetic and purposeless," says Harrison. "Too many pastors and leaders have failed to clearly communicate their position on the issue, instead playing both sides of the issue to ensure they aren't 'canceled' and that their pews remain full. We need to clarify what it is to be a man and what it is to be a man of God."

The proclamation can be read in its entirety, signed and shared at whatmakesaman.org.
