I have a special place in my heart for LMM, during the darkest hours of my life the men of LMM were the first to step up and be at my side. They were my strength and my support through terrible days of anger, anguish and hurt. My life could have taken a disastrous turn and I could have looked for other things to satisfy the loss in my heart and fill the void in my life, but my brothers were there to show me how the Lord would get me through this and to trust him and them to a life that would fill my heart with love of the Lord, not anger and hurt. I will never forget the support and love of the LMM family. I am truly blessed to be a part of that band of men.

What LMM means to me? It means that now I know that I can leave a true legacy to my family. It is Christ that I leave. Thank you LMM!
– Phillip Riddick
It has helped me in my walk. Since I am new to the faith in the last year it has been a HUGE help!
– Pat Casalaspro
LMM has definitely given me an opportunity to learn things about Jesus & the Bible and what is the true meaning behind the gospel. Because of LMM my eyes are opened toward serving God and preaching the good and true gospel.

I've been attending Legacy Minded Men's conferences and studies the last several years. LMM has been a tremendous influence and encouragement in my life that has helped me grow closer to God and encourage other men to do the same. The Men Conferences and study groups continue to feed me kingdom teachings and growing fellowship time that prepares me for my daily walk with God and helping me transform my life into kingdom living leadership. The groups foundation members are truly awesome empowered men of God, they talk the talk and walk the walk. I have grown to love and cherish their friendship and fellowship. LMM has also strengthened the men's ministry within my church and our pastoral team highly recommends all involvement and highly supports this powerful ministry God has blessed this area with.

I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank you for all that you do to keep Legacy Minded Men held together. I praise God for Legacy Minded Men and everything that it stands for! Even before I was married or a very soon to be father, Legacy Minded Men was there to help coach and assist me to walk closer with Jesus daily as we battle our sinful natures. I love the fact that Legacy Minded Men does not sugar coat anything and gets to the brutal truth right up front so that there is no escaping the hard facts that most people are too afraid to deal with. Not only is Legacy Minded Men honest and forthcoming about the fact that we ALL need a Savior, but Legacy Minded Men also offers help and support to walk the narrow road together with accountability and brotherly love. NO one on the board or staff would ask you to do something that they would not do themselves. I am so overcome with joy, strength, Holy Spirit power, and love when I attend something for Legacy Minded Men! I am so thankful that this tool is available to anyone and is something that I can be a part of. I can honestly say that Legacy Minded Men has helped me in my life in many, many ways. Praise God for you Joe and allowing Him to give you this vision and see it through. I pray that Legacy Minded Men with continue to engage, encourage & equip men for many years to come. I pray that Legacy Minded Men would be placed all over the world as it is vital to walk the walk with brothers, not alone. If there is ever anything that I can do to assist, do not hesitate to call me.

As a man that was raised in a single parent home Joe and LMM have provided me guidance in God and living for Christ that I would otherwise have been lacking for years to come. This may very well have caused me to miss my call from God. Yet because God has blessed my life with LMM I am on track and on fire for Christ. Thanks LMM!
– Andre Bolden
LMM has created an opportunity for all men, young and old to gather together in unity through the love of Christ. It has created a safe haven for men to learn leadership, stewardship and discipleship life lessons, which will not only transform them, but affect their family and communities for generations to come. Some men may not go to church or a men's program, but they will go to LMM. This program, in cooperation with churches and as a standalone program is making an investment in the lives of the men and will have a positive long lasting effect on all those who get involved with it.
– Anthony Gambino
Joe.....every Man Conference I have attended, I have been greatly moved by the Holy Spirit. I believe Legacy Minded Men is a gift for all Christians to get equipped and strengthened in their walk with The Lord. Whether it's a Huddle Up, or the Man Conference......Legacy Minded Men has been a blessing to all! Thanks Joe!!
– Kurt Edelman
Your programs have had a significant positive impact on my life, both spiritually and professionally. Your Tuesday morning breakfast meetings have been a consistent base of stability to connect with brothers and be inspired by tremendous speakers. They have been an greatly anticipated appointment within a very busy business schedule. The Legacy Minded Men’s conferences have been a valuable resource to benefit from the camaraderie of brothers and hear some of the best Christian speakers and business leaders. The subjects presented have always been relevant, from challenging men in those areas of life that many men struggle with, to life lessons and “how to’ instruction to elevate our walk with Christ. These conferences have provided a unique opportunity to bring friends who have not had the blessing of attending great churches or who have not been exposed to challenging Christian teaching. Many of these friends have accepted Christ as a result of attending the conferences and have gone on to lead inspiring lives. Keep up the tremendous job because this targeted initiative is rarely provided by the local Church.

A few years ago I went through a number of hardships. I had lost my job, had numerous medical issues, lost a friend to suicide, I was betrayed by church leadership, had major marital struggles, I had a lifelong addiction that was tearing me apart and I had to leave my church of 15 years and because of that lost friendships. Legacy Minded Men provided a place where I could connect with other men who had struggles in similar areas. Hearing the sincerity of the leadership and understanding their vision helped me to begin to trust Christian leaders again. The speakers never fail to leave a nugget that I can take with me and use in my daily life. For many years I felt that for Christians to make a difference we need to go beyond church walls and work together. Legacy Minded men is an organization run by laypeople with the intent to help and unite men from different churches with the purpose of making a difference in our lives and in our world. Because of this organization I know that I am coming back and that my God is not done with me yet and he is continuing to build a solid faith in me that Satan nor the evil works of men can destroy.

Legacy minded men was there for me when I struggled with having to leave my home Church. Because of the Network of Men and the routine opportunity to meet I was able to keep my walk together and continue to move forward. Had it not been for Legacy minded men, I’m not sure where I would be in the Lord right now.

LMM has certainly impacted me in a very positive way. I really have benefited tremendously from all the Events LMM have offered these last several years, including The Man Conference and Huddle Up. I have grown through other things you have offered over the years like the Breakfast meetings as well. All the Godly men you have brought to these events over years have been such an encouragement to me and I know to so many others. I think the brotherhood and the relationships I have gained over these years with so many men has helped me through some of my darkest times. If it weren't for LMM I don't think I would have made it through some of the stuff I was dealing with if not for my brothers Christ. Joe you are an inspiration to me and so many other men. You are a great example of what it is to be a Godly man. Blessed to call you my brother!
– Joe Silva
The Man Conference events are life changing. Each time I attend one, my walk with the Lord gets put back on the right path. I don't say this lightly. We all have our demons and I surely have mine. When I attend a LMM event, between the incredible speakers and the fellowship of hanging around guys who are looking for more than what the world offers, great things happen. My outlook on life, and specifically on God, changes...for the better. If you're seeking more out of your life, and want to get closer to Him, Legacy Minded Men is the real deal.

Legacy Minded Men as a group and as a family has meant so much to me. First of all the Holy Spirit has taught me through the men of LMM that God has a purpose and a plan for my life regardless of the storms around me. It has taught me that regardless of the amount of time we have on this earth in this body, we need to use that time for God and to worship Him in all we do. The Legacy Minded Men's group has been a family to me. They have lifted me up and edified me as well as prayed for me when I needed it most. I have felt their love and their prayers many times throughout the time I have spent alongside these men. I praise God for these men and their families and from a grateful heart I thank you LMM!
– Andrew Faltas
Men are missing! LMM challenges and then walks men through the 'how' of living out the great call of Jesus Christ in and through their vital relationships. LMM reminds men that we are His servant leaders through a community of like-minded brothers in the body of Christ without regards to denomination, ethnicity, age or even failures. Imagine what men who are restored with His purpose and identity could do in and through our churches; men ARE making a comeback through LMM!
– Charles Eapen
LMM has been 'key' in my growth as a man of God. Our fellowship offers so many opportunities to serve, grow and unite with men - that I don't know where I would be without it.
– George Venarchik
Legacy Minded Men means many things to many different men. This is because in fulfilling its mission of equipping men to be what God created us to be, it reaches out to each of us where we are. Whether providing meaningful relationships with other men in business, providing life changing experiences, or joining in prayer as we share our broken condition in life. Everyone is openly accepted even those of us who quietly are taking it in. What a blessing that no matter where we are in our walk with God or if we have yet to know him fully, there is a safe place to do it particularly as men.

My name is Jay Aftab. I was paralyzed from the waist down by a spinal injury in January 2011. I was 48 years old and suddenly I could not take care of myself in numerous ways and was forced to depend on others to help me greatly in my daily life. That is a hard thing to accept for someone as independent and self-reliant as I was before the accident. I could not work and therefore lost my carpet business of 23 years and abruptly found myself with not much else to do each day other than rehabilitate my lost nerves... Several friends both new and old from Legacy Minded Men supported me by driving me to LMM events and I became a regular on the prayer call on Mondays and Thursdays... All the while God was restoring my nerves slowly to where I can now today walk with a cane! But I think that God had a purpose for my injury. Without it I would never have become as dependent on others (or God) and I think that He had loftier goals than just healing my legs... He had to heal my heart. He did this through the accountability and support I received from all those at LMM! I just recently received the OK to drive again and now I support those who I can help thru tough times and bring them to LMM events and volunteer at events when possible. LMM is a major part of my daily life and I will do anything to support its growth and effectiveness in other men's lives.
Thank you for caring , I m not use to that , I mean the real love of someone who is a conduit for JESUS, wow!!
