Since the men's group I'm starting will be part of an existing entity (some campus fellowship) I need to have some oversight. I approached this individual first since of the workers I had the best connection with him. Recently we went through the outline of what I'd like to do and he thought most of it was good but questioned the book I was using: u/Deep_Strength's Biblical Masculinity Blueprint. He instead recommended that I read God's Good Design by Claire Smith, which seems to be alright.
I asked him for his thoughts on male headship and submission, he said we need to sacrifice ourselves for women as Christ did for the church. Putting their needs ahead of ours etc. I get where he's coming from but in practice this kind of thinking can be misconstrued and dangerous. Its not a big deal at this point, and I have a gut feeling that if I can explain rpc properly then he would come around.
Still, what are some of your experiences with bp christian men? Successes and/or failures?
