Jody Burkeen is the founder and president of MAN UP! Gods Way Ministries. This ministry was birthed out of a desire to change the way Christian men “do” Christianity.

Jody’s self-described “Damascus Road Transformation” led him on a journey to search the Scripture to find what he had been missing his whole life, which was Jesus Christ. In this journey, the Word of God took over in a way he never expected. Searching for men in the church to help him in his walk, he found very little help. What he did find was men that needed the same kind of help he did.

Thousands of copies sold worldwide - Understanding who you are as a man is a journey. Showing up daily is the key. Escape to the cave. Find your soul, your strength, and emerge a mighty man of God.

Men all over are walking around, taking up space, getting assaulted, and being beaten on. Your masculinity will be attacked and assaulted—relentlessly—on every front, and you will need some help. You need to learn to escape, regroup, recoup, and fight back. Every man needs help. Through understanding your roles and learning to use your stones—just like King David of Israel and his band of 400 brothers did—you too can become a mighty fighting force. Cavetime is a call to you and to every man. It’s a call to show up and live like what you were created to be. 

The Ultimate Man Box comes with all three of Jeff Voth's books: Cavetime, Defending the Feminine Heart, and The Sling + Slaying Giants T-shirt + Cavetime sticker + Leather Sling. This is the perfect ammo box for any man. 


In the movie industry, the rough cut is defined as the raw, first edition of a movie, which provides an idea of what the finished product will look like, giving indications of where it has problems and where it excels.
Much like a rough cut movie, Rough Cut Men are not the “finished product”. We are a work in progress. Philippians 1:6 reads: “being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”
Men today have hundreds of acquaintances, but most have no real friends. Men are isolated and struggling alone. And while the Bible says we are to “Pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up.” (Ecc. 4:10), most guys go into the battles of life with no covering fire. Every man needs a battle buddy.
Rough Cut Men utilizes a strategic blend of “guy” movie scenes, real world tales of men, Biblical Truth and even throws in some of the author’s personal testimony to accomplish one focused mission: To get men talking to each other about what’s really going on in their lives. Each chapter contains hard-hitting questions designed to drive men deeper in their walk with other men and with Christ.
Rough Cut Men is real, raw and authentic. And it will equip you for the battle.
