Since we first began following the adoption of co-founder Roger Gibson’s daughter Zoie, the mission of Man Up and Go has been to provide our love to the children and families around the world who need it the most. To define it clearly, our Christian missionary group seeks to shape a better future for orphans by making Jesus known, being a father to the fatherless, and equipping each man to take personal responsibility for his faith, family, and community. We want to see Less Orphans, More Families.
We talk frequently about fatherlessness at Man Up and Go. We can toss the term around a lot in the language of our vision, but what exactly does it mean? With over 700 million children throughout the world living without a father, this term characterizes the missing care and direction that has plagued so many orphans in today’s society. The lack of a paternal figure in a child’s life has been proven to contribute to behavioral disorders in over 85 percent of the population. Additionally, 80 percent of the youth that are in prison grew up in a fatherless home, further exhibiting the effects of this unfortunate commonality.
Man Up and Go’s Vision: 20K by 2020
It’s easy to identify the issues in ignoring a problem like fatherlessness. Being blessed with such a strong support system growing up, it is our duty to Man Up and Go provide care for these children throughout the globe. Our Christian missions organization has made incredible efforts over the past few years, and we don’t plan on stopping anytime soon.
Man Up and Go has made it our mission to reach 20,000 families in need by the year 2020. We aim to achieve this through our continual participation in missionary work where we show the love of our Heavenly Father to children and families across the world. We believe that the love of God is life-changing and that it is especially important for Christian men to act as a living example of the Father’s love.Our men’s leadership is encouraged to provide their spiritual and emotional support to the children and families that they interact with on our trips.
Join the Vision of Man Up and Go
Despite what causes fatherlessness, we believe that a figure who provides spiritual and physical care toward their families can help reshape future generations. When we work together to provide a solid foundation of God’s love, the relationships within families begin to prosper, making for a healthier environment for all. Help join our vision in reaching as many families as we can to put an end to the plague of fatherlessness. Contact Man Up and Go for more information.
