Parish Transformation Starts in the Home

Imagine if hundreds (or thousands!) 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.

Parishes and Dioceses may review RISE at no cost. Click the button below.

Powerful Daily Videos

From the Directors of Chosen and Humanum, RISE walks men through a battle-plan for life. Simple and profound messages and cinematic stories lead you straight into your own heart, and show you how to make real and lasting changes that will bring a greater peace and balance to your life.

Practical Content

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

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.
