The Vision of Men Mapping is to target men for the purpose of developing leadership skills that will equip men to be protectors of women, children, their communities and nation.

Men Mapping has a specific mission to disciple men to be more qualified and adequate leaders as:
  • Servants of Christ
  • Husbands
  • Fathers
  • Leaders of their homes
  • Businessmen
  • Servants of the Community

M2 has specific targets in reaching the overall vision and mission statements by helping men discover their identity as:

  • Men of Integrity
  • Men as Spiritual Warriors
  • Men of Prayer
  • Men of Power
  • Men of Intimacy
  • Men of Freedom
  • Means as Community Changers
  • Men as Ministers
We accomplish our objectives by conducting five primary activities through out the year:
  • Monthly Rallies
  • Transformation Small Groups
  • Leadership Training Classes
  • Community-wide Leadership Seminars
  • Annual Men's Advances-weekend retreat


Men Mapping was birthed from an overwhelming burden to reach men who suffer with being fatherless - physically or spiritually. Dr. Phinney's life story reveals the purpose and reason why God would choose a vessel like him to start such an outreach.

The very first group of Men Mappers was a small group men organized by Michael Tope and Steve Phinney in Scottsdale, AZ in 2002. Both saw the need to train and equip men to be protectors of women, children, family-life and the communities they served. Due to the success of this particular group, Steve Phinney incorporated the "Men Mapping" concepts by placing it under the ministry of IOM America (Institute Of Ministry) in the fall of 2002. It continues to be an official part of IOM America.

The Men Mapping concept is based on the study of several Biblical leaders, the primary being Nehemiah. Nehemiah was a cup-bearer, builder and governor, three of the basic building blocks of a man. Nehemiah’s servant leadership was a direct result of a personal and humble walk with God, his king and his people. His influence as a leader was so effective that he was able to accomplish a remarkable feat – winning the heart of his king, strategically developing a plan to rebuild Jerusalem, implementing this plan and finally, govern the people to bring order to the nation of God. Men Mapping purposes to equip men with the same key leadership skills that God blessed Nehemiah with.
