Great ministry

I’m not sure how I stumbled across this podcast or what made me decide to listen to it other than it was the will of God. I’ve been on a journey of self improvement for 2 years now and it feels like I reach a point in my journey where the main thing that was left was to grow deeper in my relationship was God; however, I didn’t realize it until God had me listen to this podcast. Jim does a great job interviewing his guests. Since listening to my first episode I have been binging episodes of this podcast, podcast of his guests, and have noticed a huge difference in my connection to Jesus. For the first time I feel like I am doing life with Jesus and part of the credit for that goes to the existence of the Men in The Arena community and their partner organizations.

Powerful stuff

I am routinely amazed and challenged by this podcast and Jim Ramos. First of all, this guy reads EVERY book he interviews someone for. You can tell some of the guests are even shocked that he actually read the book LOL. Also, I really like the way he defines the opposite of soft as not hard, but solid. I don't want to be a hardened guy, but I sure as heck want to be a solid one. Thanks, Jim! Keep up the good work.


Fabulous! If your a man serious about living like one

I look forward to listening to this podcast a couple of times a week. First thing in the morning I do my devotions, then listen to the newest episode. Every episode has been relevant, convicting, and challenging. It’s not a joke to be a man. It’s not a joke to be a husband or a father either. I’ve been a Christian since I was in grade school, I have experienced the various challenges of the walk. This podcast keeps it real.


Makes me better

Such a wide variety of guest interviews that make me a better man, father, husband, employe, and member of my community.


Better man

If you want to learn how be a better man of God, a better husband & father this is the podcast for you. Real life application from imperfect men who have figured out that godly submission isn’t just for women. Thanks fellas!


Not for boys

Not for boys but men who want to be men.


Regular listener

I’ve been married for 8 years, I have two kids. Listening to this podcast has me constantly thinking and rethinking the way my household is run. It’s been instrumental in making me the man my wife needs me to be, as well as being the dad my son and daughter need. Always looking forward to the next episode!


Thank you! A great Guide to Grow real MEN!

This is truely an inspiration. In a mans world I have been told I’m a “Man”, but really I was nothing. I greatly appreciate this podcast and others I listen to, to help guide me on the path of being a REAL MAN! I have shared this podcast with a few of my brothers in the military, a few guys at work. I want to help spread this the best I can. Thank you again for everything.


Listen! It’ll change your life!

Thank you Jim and the team for this excellent resource for men. I’m always looking forward to what I am going to learn from a new episode.


continuously life-changing

Simply said... this podcast is continuously changing my life and my perspective on what it is to be a man (not just a male, but a true man). I can see this reflected in my personal relationships (family and friends) and even in my public encounters (acquaintances and strangers). This podcast is convicting, yet encouraging and instructional. Every male should be listening to it. I've learned incredible lessons and great new ways to approach fatherhood, being a husband, and being a "man on the roof." The guest speakers are captivating and inspirational. I started listening to the earliest podcast I could and have loved all of them so far. I wish I could listen to them more frequently. If you're a male, a male who wants to be a man, a teen wanting to gain wisdom, or even if you're a man already, this podcast is for you. You won't regret listening to it, and your wife, sons and daughters, and everyone you encounter will notice a difference if you invest yourself into becoming a man. Because when a man gets it, everyone wins!


If u have a “member” love God, and want to be the man God expect u to be this is for u.

In a day in age when popular podcast are trying to “ deconstruct” Christian men this is a much needed “Arena”. If your a man who loves God. Is sick of the political world demasculinizing ( my word I think lol) men then you need to hear this. If you been left stranded by popular podcasts that promote breaking down the “ good Christian” or “ Facebook Christian” ( as I like to call them) but now are lost in a world of what do I do now or what IS expected of me as a Christian man, you are in the right place. I now have a book list a mile long I WANT to read on how to be a real man of God in this day in age. I’ve also purchased the Men in the Arena study Bible by Gene Getz and cant get enough of it. Just know that if you “Identify as a man” but don’t know what that truly means this is a great tool to get you started. This podcast will not Change your life. It will give you the tools your Father wants you to have so that HE can change your life as long as your willing to accept the journey.


Excellent resource for men!

A quality, meaningful podcast that is a great resource for men. As a 35 yr old father, I find great inspiration and thought-provoking challenges from this podcast. Keep up the great work!


Equipping Men

If you want be a man, a Godly man, a true man. This needs needs to be in your kit. Men in the Arena helps equip men to be a Man. It’ll help you examine your life, measure your faults, set fixes for your foundation, find ways to grow to benefit you, your wife, family, friends, and community. Part of the way Jim and Dale do this is also helping you discover numerous ministries out there that are designed for men. It helps remind you that you are not alone in your struggles. All of it teaches great lessons, but it is useless if you don’t bandage your wounds, pick up your sword and shield, take action and get in the arena. No matter what’s going on in your life, through Christ you can change it.


It’s real

Recently came across this when looking for some Christian perspective on Manhood, Fatherhood, adventure, provision, and all the other adjectives of expectations on places on us. Great info here and sometimes a bit gritty, but real issues require real talk. These are Men who are making the effort to bring in experts to mentor and disciple guys like me who want to do more than just be present but aren’t sure where to start. This podcast doesn’t disappoint and sometimes takes 2-3 listens to unpack all of the knowledge. I appreciate the Biblical foundation of each episode despite the variety of topics. Well done, wish I found it sooner.


A changed man

I love this podcast! I often used to struggle with my faith. I was first introduced to Jim Ramose at a prayer breakfast at a church in the small town of Mattoon IL. At the time I was not attending church and was trying to do my walk alone. But I knew I wanted to be a better husband, father, and man. My brother really wanted me to attend a prayer breakfast. This is where I heard Jim Ramose’s sermon Men on the Roof, and the following Sunday the power of a parents words. I started listening to this podcast and attending Church and men’s group regularly. My life and walk with God is truly better than it’s ever been. I have given my testimony and currently trying to help other men find God. I cannot express my gratitude and thanks. Thank you, Jim for this podcast and the work you’re doing for God’s kingdom. With love and admiration, Josh Frederick


Great life lessons

Have been on a quest to better myself and found this podcast. Focused on men and our particular issues is what I need. Great information and lots to think about!

Landing

After over a decade of podcasts, books and conferences on a Believer’s pursuit of manliness, I am thankful to have found The Men in the Arena podcast series. Currently, playing old episodes, the material is timeless and always applicable. I enjoy the format of having expert guests that bring a new perspective every week. Always something to take away and disseminate to other men. Thanks guys & keep up the strong and needed work.


8 Cow Wife

Of all the MITA podcasts I have listened to, this one has brought so many topics to the forefront that are key to a great relationship between a husband and his wife. Absolutely, if a man gets (this), everybody wins.


Great questions and content

I really enjoyed listening to your podcast today. The questions were easy to understand and deep enough to get real substance. Well done.


A Great listen

First I want to thank the crew that makes this podcast possible. I have been listening to the podcast on my way into work each morning and on the way home. These have been great in helping me be the best version of myself.


God’s Honest Truth about all things of being a Man (not just a male)!!!

Jim and his team are great men of God and have inspired me to be a better man and think differently about what it means to be a husband and father. My family has noticed a difference since listening and follow The men in the arena and for that I thank you guys for all you do. I love hearing from all your guests of the podcast and listening to the different stories of how they were led to God and have shared their love for God they their experiences. Ever since I attended the Wild Game feast in Springfield, OR and heard Jim speak I’ve been moved by him and the way he delivers the message of what and how we need to be a s men of god. Again Thank you all from the bottom of my heart and press on brothers of Christ.


Jim Ramos puts it out there

Jim is a no nonsense guy. He speaks from his heart and let’s you have it right between the eyes. He does this so that a man can see the error of his selfish ways. Through this podcast a man can finally “see” and be healed of their worldly “blindness”. Men in the Arena is a excellent supplement to a Christian diet that enlightens the soul to its core. The precepts set forth in Jim’s ministry are to bring men to their knees and worship God with fearful reverence and to know that they loved, forgiven, and saved by His grace. Thanks Jim!


Superb podcast

This is led by two great men (shout out to Jim AND Dale). These guys do an amazing job interviewing men who are making a difference in this world. I’ve used some of Jim’s work (his book, “The Man Card”) on one of my hikes to teach men what our impact truly is. It is up to us—to men—to lead those we have influence over and teach and train them in what a true man of God should look like. It is up to us to save the next generation and I’m thankful for men like Jim and Dale who are leading men like me in this charge. It’s like they always say: “when a man gets it, everyone wins.” Keep up the great works, men!


Great stuff

I grew up as a Christian in the era of Mark Driscoll’s brand of Christian masculinity. Lots of machismo where there need not be. Lots of good fruit but also lots of seeds to spit out. These guys are granddads, so it’s good to learn from men who don’t care about that brand of machismo anymore. Excited to dig into the archives!


Great work, you are leading men to win!

Jim, I just started listening to your podcasts. They are excellent, and you are providing practical content to help men “get it” so everyone can win! You have challenged me to stay in the arena and off of the sidelines. I especially enjoyed the podcast with Haines Maxwell where he talked about the men at The Barn. They do great work there! We need more venues for Christian men to gather for encouragement, mentoring, “getting real” and heart surgeries! Gray


Adventure

Love these podcasts. Jim it’s so great to see where God has taken and led you since youth group at the Naz. Just listened to episode 215? The adventure one I think. It reminds me of the book Wild at Heat by John Eldredge. Got me thinking about many things being in the stress bubble with life. Great stuff guys! Keep it up!
