Now is the time to proactively guide boys through their formative teen years so they can be successful men of God.
Society today rejects the idea of absolute truth and is openly hostile toward God. For boys who want to be more like Christ, going through adolescence in this culture is like crossing a minefield without a map.
They need parents and youth workers to engage with them early and equip them with the skills needed to thrive.
Checkpoints plots a course through this enemy territory that not only steers young men toward godliness but also explains how to avoid potential pitfalls.
And they will listen, because Checkpoints honestly talks about the core issues they face, opening a vital dialogue between fathers and sons, pastors and students.
• Created by student pastors with 20+ years in ministry
• 8 lessons
• Written in a devotional style
• Guys spend just 15 minutes each day to prepare them for their small group time.

You are selling a book to teach boys how to be men of God. I have spent the last 3 years working with my 4 grandsons, trying to teach them that very exact thing. Explain to me how your book is going to teach my grandsons how to be men of God in 15 minutes?

Solid Content for young men
I worked through much of this book with the author (Nathan Wagnon) a year ago. I am impressed with the content and believe it will be a great resource for young men who are growing to follow Christ through the challenges of early adulthood. I will certainly look to get this into the hands of every young man in our church.

Applicable for any man
Checkpoints provides great information applicable not only to today's young men, but to men of any age. The "multipliers" mentioned give practical tools that will equip all of us to continue to walk more faithfully with the Lord. I look forward to going through this study with my own son as well as the other young men in our lives. Thanks, Brian and Nathan, for sharing your experiences and knowledge with all of us

Great study for small groups!
Brian and Nathan have created a pragmatic yet biblically sound approach to navigating the treacherous waters of manhood. I felt the illustrations illuminated the readers mind to the content and context of the principles being taught. As a preacher, teacher and father I would strongly consider taking the students under my influence through this material. Additionally I highly recommend this resource for small groups or possibly a theme for a guys conference. This is a great study that every youth pastor should read!

The Greatest Generation
Many say the "Greatest Generation" was alive during World War 2; they were an outstanding group of people.
It's imperative we close the gap between then and today. The generation we serve is very spiritual and altruistic, what leadership does to lead this generation will determine whether or not we will helpp shape the next "greatest generation".
Brian Mills and Nathan Wagnon are men who love God and are strategic in developing young men. Their new book, “Checkpoints: A Tactical Guide to Manhood”, is an incredible resource for guys.
Written as a devotional, each day is packed with Scripture, insight and application for developing students into the man God has created them to be. If you are looking for a tool that equips guys to fight temptation and live passionately for God, this it!

A Call Back to the Foxhole
We are multiple generations removed from a culture of character in men that were convinced it was right and good and necessary to live in a foxhole for days and battle all that was evil in our world. The absence of that type character, devotion, and fortitude in men has the potential to change our world...and not in a desirable way. Checkpoints is a clarion call for boys and men to come back to faithfulness. We need these type men. This book is a great resource to facilitate these discussions.

This book needs to be put in the hands of every teenage young man that we want to help become everything that God wants them to be.

A Must Read for Young Men
When it comes to literature for teenagers today, the bookshelves are filled with pink books on how to become a Godly young lady. Finally, there's a book for young men that challenges them to step up in their lives, be accountable for their decision, and become the man that God intends for them to be. Without hesitation, I'd call this book a 'Must Read,' not only for teenagers, but for all of us.
