What Can You Expect from CBMW Manual in 2015?

January 7, 2015

By Greg Gibson


On monday, we published a recap of 2014.  Today, I want to give you some insight into where CBMW Manual is headed for 2015. I am extremely excited about this upcoming year, and I hope 2015 is a year that blows our expectations out of the water for what God will do for his fame through our efforts.  At CBMW, we are all about gospel-centered manhood and womanhood.  Human flourishing is essentially the outflow of what it means to be a Christian.  We, as redeemed sinners, work towards becoming more like Jesus.  That is what I mean by the term “human flourishing.”  Life is at it’s apex when we are fully seeking Christ, killing sin, and pursuing manhood and womanhood according to the prescriptives of Scripture.  Obviously there are more things that flow out of our pursuit of Christ, such as a commitment to the Great Commission, the local church, our families, etc.  And, in reality, those are things that also flow out of a full pursuit manhood and womanhood—which, again, is human flourishing at its apex.  It is in this pursuit that we find our deepest joy, most fulfilled purpose, and truest meaning.

With that said, our goal is clear.  Here are a few things we want to share with you about 2015 as we move towards seeing that goal happen:

  1. WE WANT TO DEVELOP MORE WRITERS.  First of all, if you are interested in writing for CBMW Manual, then let us know.  We would love to connect with you.  It doesn’t matter if you are in college or have been out of college for 30-years.  If you are passionate about writing, and more specifically, if you’re passionate about writing towards subjects like leadership, fatherhood, the family, marriage, dating, work, and the local church, then let us know.  Email us at [email protected].
  2. WE WANT TO WRITE MORE ABOUT MANHOOD IN MOTION.  CBMW Manual exists to be practical.  We aren’t necessarily going to write about sexuality in early Jewish history.  That is why we have a Theological Journal.  We want to put manhood in motion.  That means we are going to write about what it means to be an intentional father and husband when you come home from work.  It also means we are going to write about how you should date your wife on a regular basis.  You know, stuff like that.
  3. WE WANT TO PUT FORTH CONTENT IN SERIES FORM.  The reason we hope to do this is simple.  When we do it this way, we can then put forth good content in an organized system.  That means you don’t have to necessarily search our site for all the article we did over the last few years on how to go home from work and be intentional about being a husband and father.  You can just look at our series from early 2014 called Second Shift.
  4. WE WANT TO GIVE AWAY STUFF.  Why?  Because we want to thank you for being faithful readers… and potential givers to CBMW.  We couldn’t do what we do without your faithfulness.
  5. WE WANT TO CHAMPION OUR OTHER CHANNELS.  If you come to CBMW Manual only for content on manhood, then you are missing two of our other great channels.  CBMW Karis is our women’s channel, and CBMW Family is–you guessed it–our family channel.  There is some great content coming out of both of those channels, and we want you to be aware of that over the course of 2015.
