Real Men Pursuing Purity
Who are we?
Real Men Pursuing Purity (RMPP) is a community of men that are committed to growing in integrity, purity and wholeness through relevant teachings, accountability, mentoring and honest dialogue. You might not be sure that you really need to be part of a community like this because you don’t struggle with compulsive addictions or sexual sin. While it is very important for many men to focus primarily on resisting sexual temptation and sin, we want to inspire and challenge you to pursue more. Growing in purity is a big part of the vision for RMPP, but it’s much more than that. It’s also learning about deep-rooted insecurities, developing proper work boundaries, embracing our identity in Christ, confronting fears and anxiety, expressing ourselves emotionally in a healthy way, and pursuing holiness in a safe environment with like-minded brothers. We believe that when we invite Him into these areas, He will extend His healing hand and bring about wholeness. Max Lucado says this very well:
‘Our Savior kneels down and gazes upon the darkest acts of our lives. But rather than recoil in horror, He reaches out in kindness and says, “I can clean that if you want.”
We are men that are not willing to settle for a life of spiritual mediocrity. We choose to relentlessly pursue greater heights of purity and wholeness for ourselves and for our families. Welcome to the RMPP community.
When are the events held?
RMPP events are held 4x a year in February, May, August and November as scheduling permits. Currently RMPP events are held in Bangkok and Pattaya but other cities may be added in the future.
Who can attend?
RMPP events are open to both Thai and foreign men with Thai translation provided, if needed.
A safe environment
Because of the sensitive nature of RMPP events, video recording is not allowed. Also, details of personal testimonies are NOT to be published via email, social media, or in any other form. Thank you for contributing to a safe and secure environment that helps build honesty and vulnerability.
How does RMPP support the local church?
RMPP does not intend to replace or represent a church; it only creates a safe place for men who want to stay active in their own church community. When a man joins the RMPP community, he joins other like-minded men who desire to pursue greater spiritual growth and Christ-likeness. He is choosing to walk in greater honesty and vulnerability. He is choosing to pursue purity in all aspects of his life. We then pray that as these men grow in greater maturity, they would influence their families. We pray that they would impact their communities and their work places, and that they would be an example for other men in their home church. We believe that as men take hold of the awesome and holy call to live lives that reflect Christ, the church will be inspired and the world will take notice.
The next 6-7 weeks
If you have ever attended a men's retreat, you probably remember being deeply impacted by worship, challenged by teaching, and being in community with many men who shared your excitement and enthusiasm for growth and change. A few weeks or months down the road, the gathering became a distant memory as you settled back into the routines of daily life.
We don't want to create just another mountain top experience. We are committed to creating a long-term mentoring relationship for everyone who attends an event. That is why you are holding this devotional book in your hands. As you flip through these pages you will see that there are devotionals with corresponding questions. Each devotional is meant to solidify the teaching of the event by encouraging and challenging you, as well as helping to stimulate discussion through thought provoking questions, verses and quotes.
