Welcome to our site! We’re excited for you to browse through our pages, check out our videos and support our cause through giving and/or support. The MAN-UP Movement is a ministry to the family, specifically focusing on equipping and building healthy men (Mind, Body, Soul & Spirit) to reach their potential and lead their families; transforming a culture and establishing generational fellowship with God for years to come. Our mission is to build men up to MAN-UP to who they were designed to be and destined to do. Our vision is to spark a movement of men leading the charge to recapture their livelihoods, families, communities, churches, and cultures 4 Christ.
iCARE (Creating Authentic Relational Energy) Mentoring is a new school-based mentoring program developed by a network of area partners including Akron Public Schools, The MAN-UP Movement, the Summit County ADM Board, Fame Fathers, EMS, The Love Akron Network, Summit Education Initiative and various faith-based and corporate partners. Our mission is to build champions with self-confidence and self-esteem to triumph over life’s difficult challenges and obstacles. We do this by partnering 1 mentor with 1 child, once a week for 1 school year until every child in Akron who needs or wants a mentor-role model has one.
MAN-UP is currently looking for motivated, creative and determined men and women to join a team of leaders who work together to spearhead projects and ministry services of The MAN-UP Movement.

When A KEY Element is missing, the Landscape changes and it will never be what it was originally intended to be without the re-introduction of that Key ELEMENT…Nor should it be! – Jonathan Greer (CEO/President – The MAN-UP Movement)
