A brotherhood of men making better men.

Will Leighton


Welcome to Uncage the Lion! 
My name is Will Leighton and I’m the founder of the Uncage the Lion movement. I decided to build this movement to unite and encourage men to seek truth, grow virtuously, and to fight back against a culture that seeks to tear down the good, true, and beautiful in our civilization. I strongly believe that one of the biggest factors contributing to the degeneration of goodness and flourishing in our modern society is due to a lack of biblical and traditional values, a lack of stewardship at home from fathers and husbands, and a direct assault on the very essence of true masculinity. 

Why "Uncage the Lion"?

There is a lot of symbolism behind the name and logo of this movement, as I wanted to really capture the essence of the mission that we as men must embark upon.

And these things perfectly align, and describe, the very mission I felt called to pursue when I started this movement:

That is, to help lead men and inspire them to become godly stewards of faith, family, and truth. To become “Kings.” To become “Lions.”

So if these things resonate with you, and if you think you would like to go on this journey with me. I invite you to join the movement, fight, and become the man God made you to be.

Will is a thoughtful, attentive, and encouraging coach. I signed with him for a 7-day habit coaching package, and frankly, I was not prepared. Habits? I thought those were simple. But within days Will helped me to uncover many unresolved issues in my life that had been waiting for my attention before we could breakthrough for any real change. I wasn’t ready for this, but Will was. When I felt that my problems were too much, he only encouraged me to share more and get to the bottom of things. I thought I was signing up for a quick dip into an improved morning routine, but Will took me on a deep dive into my meaning and character as a man, husband, and leader. If you’re ready (or not) to grow into the man that God has created you to be, connect with Will. Put the work in, and he will too.
