Join us, in-person or virtually, as we dive into Morgan Snyder’s new book, Becoming a King.

We have two options to participate in this six-week video book study – in person or online via Zoom. Both options have the same content and weekly schedule. We are looking forward to offering an online option for the first time and envision men from all across the midwest gathering together. Now is the time to strengthen our union with God and reinforce our connections with other like-minded men. We hope you will join us!

Content: Each week, through videos and small group break-out discussions, we will journey with Morgan into a process that helps men recover “the way back to becoming whole-hearted, becoming strong, and  becoming everything God meant when he meant you – when He dreamed up who you could become.”

Materials: We will have hard copies of the book available for local pickup near Liberty, Missouri for only $10.00 or you can order your own copy of Becoming a King from your local or online book seller. There is an accompanying Study Guide, which may enhance your individual reading and quiet times, but it is not required to participate in the Book Study.


Becoming a King is an invitation into a radical reconstruction of much of what we’ve come to believe about God, ourselves, and the meaning of life. It’s an invitation to a rare and remarkable fellowship of like-hearted kings and an honest conversation about what power and responsibility look like for men in our world today.

Traveling the path isn’t cheap. It isn’t easy. It isn’t quick.

But it is the heroic journey detailed within the pages of Becoming a King that leads to real life; to men becoming as solid and mighty as oak trees, teeming with strength and courage to bring to a hurting world; and to our sons, husbands, brothers, and friends becoming the kind of kings to whom God can entrust his kingdom.

“I’m always reluctant to write blurbs for book, and I didn’t want to write an endorsement for Becoming a King–but then I read it. It’s not sanctimonious advice written by somebody who’s never had his knuckles bloody or his hands dirty or his heart broken; it’s the honest account of a man who’s been where every man needs to go sooner or later. I don’t like to sign my name to things that don’t matter. This matters.” – Randall Wallace, Oscar-nominated screenwriter, film producer, director, Braveheart, We Were Soldiers, Heaven Is for Real.

“If there is one book that you read this year on growing deeply as a man, this is it! I recommend not only Morgan’s book but Morgan himself. You can no longer say, ‘I don’t know where to begin.’ It begins with this book.” –Bill Lokey, chief clinical director, Onsite Workshops

“Becoming a King is a book all about that, about the process God takes us through in order to shape us into the kind of people he can entrust with his kingdom.” – John Eldredge

Morgan serves on the executive leadership team at Wild at Heart and has contended for the wholeheartedness of men and women alongside John and Stasi Eldredge for more than two decades. He has led over a decade of Become Good Soil Intensives and sold out Wild at Heart men’s events across the United States, United Kingdom, South Africa, and Australia.
