Challenges each day tailored to your state-in-life (married, divorced, single, etc.) This has been life-changing for thousands of men.

RISE has been crafted by experts in evangelization, discipleship, and men's issues (Chris Stefanick, Bill Donaghy, and edited by Marcel Lejeune) to create an experience unlike anything that exists. It doesn't matter where you are or where you've been. This will challenge you to RISE to new heights, and show you how to get there.

True Brotherhood

You'll join an online community of men who are all on this journey together. We've never seen such powerful interactions online!

Men bond best around a common mission. Before the challenge, you'll choose a "brother" to journey with you. We provide the tools needed to support & hold each other accountable. We need brothers who have our backs, and RISE helps you form those relationships.

Parish Transformation Starts in the Home

Imagine if hundreds of men at your parish were striving to live as saints every day... it would literally change your parish, and the world. RISE is a powerful tool for those in ministry who want to strengthen and engage men. It is designed to fit seamlessly within your existing men's group. We also give you everything you need to start a new group at your parish.

The most important thing that a man can discover is that God is at work in his life; he is not just out there on his own, battling his way through.

The vision of menALIVE is to create an opportunity for that to happen and then try not to get in God's way.
