Cornerstone Lodi is Using the Authentic Manhood Series in their Men’s Accountability Group. Have they Heard of the Fellowship Memphis Scandal?

Cornerstone Lodi is an Evangelical Free Church in Lodi, California. This church is actually using the Authentic Manhood program in its Men’s Accountability Group.
