Patriarch was a magazine published from 1993 to 2004[1][better source needed] by Philip Lancaster, a former army chaplain,[2] minister of the Presbyterian Church in America[3] and later a founder of Immanuel Family Fellowship in St. Louis, Missouri.[4][better source needed]

The magazine's mission was to promote a "Christ-like manhood" that is "neither tyrannical or wimpy" and a "home-centered lifestyle." The magazine was explicitly anti-feminist, blaming feminism for a large number of social ills. It promoted homeschooling, and daughters remaining in their father's household until marriage.[5]
