About KingsMen

Superficial friendships and sofa sitting

Large groups of men are more and more passive in our Western society.

We often have difficulty dealing with the growing self-awareness of women and therefore crawl back into our own world.

We start by lounging on the sofa in front of the TV with our phone in hand and often ends in complicated addiction problems, difficult relationships, being overworked and in very superficial friendships.

This film by Net for God tells our story of KingsMen and features testimonies from men and their wives about how the treks have changed their lives.


KingsMen is a men’s movement based on Catholic principles. We want to make us men aware of  what it means to be a man and of to take our role in life, family and society. We do so by organizing activities that “wake us up” and bring us back to the essence of being a man.

KingsMen challenges us to step out of our comfort zone.
