The Journey to Being Sons

Somewhere between boyhood and manhood a piece of our masculine soul turns up missing. Its recovery is made possible only by setting out on a journey to find it. The life you are uniquely created to live waits on this.  Are you willing to believe God is behind all this, waiting for you to step out so he can do something impossibly good in you?

Take the journey.  You were born for this.


Where do you want to start?

 4 days to invest in yourself

Give God 4 days to awaken the sleeping giant in you.

 an ADVENTURE with your child

One-on-one adventures that'll redefine your relationship.

share a fire.
and your fight. 

Find local men who are going in your direction and join them.

Why attend another "Men's thing"?

We get it. You've already invested your valuable time in men's retreats that were informative, but what changed? Men don't need more information or inspiration. What we need is revelation and transformation. We need the "life to the full" Jesus promised. That's why we lead these personal journeys to help men shake free from the bondages of culture, religion and personal story to find their way back home to God. You can become the man God created you to be.

Are you ready for a real change? Then you really ought to try this.

fight club

The offer of Jesus is life, but your journey to take hold of it will be the fight of your life. You can win that fight, but not alone. You need men who want the same things you want and have to fight the same stuff to get it. That’s why once a month we take a few hours to step off the front lines, drink deep joy and tell stories. Stories among good men embolden, bring deeply needed perspective, instruct, inspire, and are medicine to the soul. Where are you getting this? Come and get it here.
