NEW TO FIVESTARMAN?
If this is your first time visiting Fivestarman we welcome and thank you for visiting. We are often asked to explain what Fivestarman is, what we do, and how we do it. The following frequently asked questions will help bring into focus the mission we have embraced of being the voice of authentic manhood.
What is Fivestarman?
Fivestarman exists to inspire, instruct, and empower men to live the authentic and passionate life that God intended for man. Fivestarman is not a program or a ministry. It is a movement. A movement of like-minded men ready to do an about-face, turning from a life of mediocrity to a passion-filled life of authentic manhood.
What is authentic manhood?
Authentic manhood has been under attack for decades. Movies, television, and the press have marginalized and portrayed men as buffoons, mama’s boys, and worse. Sadly, many men have quietly bought into these characterizations, giving up their status as leaders, providers, and champions of worthy causes.
At Fivestarman, we believe men — real men — are ready to throw off mainstream society’s chains and embrace the ideals of God-given manhood. Authentic manhood.
We believe authentic manhood is fully expressed when a man lives a passion-filled life, fully devoted to his God, his family and his pursuit of real, life-changing purpose. The life of authentic manhood can be developed when a man embraces the five distinct purposes or passions which every strong man has within himself. We call these the five passions of authentic manhood.
What are the five passions of authentic manhood?
A Fivestarman is adventurous. Seeking new challenges with passion and determination, encouraging others to join in.
A Fivestarman is entrepreneurial. Passionate in the discovery of new ideas that provide new sources of income, embracing and building on the entrepreneurial spirit.
A Fivestarman is gallant. Courageous in battle, fighting passionately to defend the weak and less fortunate. He is gallant in his respect of women and heroic in his defense of children.
A Fivestarman is faithful. Unwavering in the truths he holds dear, a Fivestarman understands that true freedom comes when he is submitted to Godly authority.
A Fivestarman is philanthropic. Legendary in his desire to live beyond his own interests, ever ready to champion a worthy cause, and willing to respond with resources and action.
Who is behind Fivestarman?
Fivestarman was founded in 2008 by Neil Kennedy. Neil has passionately promoted God’s Word for twenty-five plus years of ministry. He is known for practically applying Biblical principles that elevate people to a new level of living. As a business, church, ministry, and life consultant, Neil has helped others strategize the necessary steps to reach their full potential. His full time focus is now on Fivestarman and he travels extensively each week speaking in churches and seminars challenging men to step up and grab the reins of authentic manhood.
But to be clear, Fivestarman is not about one man, one individual. It is about you and your family, your friends and acquaintances, your ability to see beyond the mundane and into the passion-filled life of authentic manhood. To that end, Fivestarman has recruited a number of talented individuals to assist in our quest. And more, many more, just like yourself are getting involved everyday.
So then, Fivestarman is a ministry?
No, Fivestarman is not a ministry. Fivestarman is a movement. A movement of like-minded men ready to live a passion-filled life of authentic manhood. But we do believe wholeheartedly in the power of ministry and God’s Word to change a man’s life, so our goal is to work alongside many who are involved in ministry as well as those who have perhaps been marginalized by religious and narrow points of view.
I like what I’m hearing, how can I get involved?
We’re glad you asked. We need men just like you to step up and join the movement to restore authentic manhood. Every man has a sphere of influence and you can use that influence today to guide and challenge your fellow man to live a more authentic life. No action is too small, but the result of inaction is far too great.
