EMPOWERING

EVERY MAN

A NON-PROFIT MEN'S MINISTRY

CONNECTING MEN WITH GOD AND OTHER MEN THROUGH BIBLE STUDY

MANUP is a non-denominational, Jesus-centered ministry founded in Austin, Texas. For over a decade, we’ve been connecting men with God and other men through Bible study groups, community events, weekend retreats, free online content, and pastoral care.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO MANUP?

5 STEPS TO BECOMING A GODLY MAN

What does it really mean to MANUP? More than a set of rules or guidelines, it's a lifestyle. A code of core principles that shapes your everyday life. Our community is designed to support every man on his journey as a student, husband, father, and leader. Stay tuned for the full series with a lesson on every pillar, coming this Fall.

OUR VISION FOR THE FUTURE

EVERY MAN AT THE TABLE

We believe the Kingdom of God is open to all. We envision a future where every man is compelled to come in, and where our house – and our table – is always full. The beauty of the Gospel is that there is always a seat at the table for you. (Luke 14:23)

HOW IT ALL BEGAN

THE MANUP STORY

J. Huffman served as a Pastor for 20 years – but something was missing. Discussing this with a friend, J. heard the words that would change his path forever: “You need to MAN UP.” After spending time reflecting and focusing on personal growth, he felt called to connect with other men on a deeper level, and share how he learned to "MAN UP" in his own life; by not blaming others, taking personal responsibility, and asking for help. Little did he know that soon, thousands of men would be doing the same.

Our content is completely free and is accessible to anyone, anywhere, anytime on our website and mobile app. Our groups meet weekly with year round support for every member. Everyone is welcome at MANUP.

ACCESSIBLE

We create 30+ new, scripture-centered lessons every year, with practical ways to change your life for the better. Every Bible study series is written from the wisdom and experience of our founding Pastor, J. Huffman.

BIBLICAL

When we teach it’s as though we are speaking directly to you - because the Word of God is applicable in every context.  Being part of MANUP means feeling seen, heard and understood on the deepest level.
