Mission + Vision


Malachi Man exists to encourage, equip and empower fathers in identifying and fulfilling their biblical role of raising courageous, Christlike youth; while simultaneously helping youth honour parents and embrace wisdom.

The vision for Malachi Man may be summarized by Malachi 4:6 which states, “turn the hearts of the fathers to their children and the hearts of the children to their fathers.”  The Old Testament ends with this imperative and the New begins with the same. Luke 1:17 further describes Malachi Man’s purpose, “And he will go on before the Lord, in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers to their children and the disobedient to the wisdom of the righteous–to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.”

Malachi Man recognizes the fundamental and critical relationship between fathers and their sons and daughters. In our culture, this vital relationship has all too often been sabotaged by peer and media attachment to our youth, and disrespected and distracted fathers.

After working in full time youth ministry for the past 12 years, I understand the critical need for this vision to be accomplished in our generation. We need a generation of courageous, Christlike, young men and women to lead revival in our land. Nobody is better positioned to disciple the next generation than their fathers.

Heart change is what we seek, which requires God’s intervention. Therefore we covet your prayers for this ministry. If you are interested in becoming a prayer partner, please contact us.
