Want to have an extraordinary life? In this second video series, Kapaun's Men examines how the concept of Stewardship helps us recognize the unique set of gifts God has given to each of us and how to use those gifts well. By focusing on Hospitality, Prayer, Formation and Service, this 10-part series helps us live as a gift to others and leave behind a legacy for our family, friends, and the world. As our model, Father Emil Kapaun, taught, "God gave us our gifts, not for our own glory or pride, but that we might use them for God's greater honor and glory. Use your gifts to help your fellow man as much as you can." (10 Sessions)
Please Note: This series is intended to follow the Kapaun’s Men Virtue Series, which introduces you to the life and virtues of Servant of God Emil Kapaun. You may also wish to view the Kapaun’s Men Beatitude Series.
