FULLY EQUIPPED

You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today.

-Abraham Lincoln

A fully equipped man is one who displays godly character, including moral excellence, resilient work ethic, compassion for his fellow man and desire to live for a transcendent cause. He is one who follows the truth, and stands firm in the faith regardless of the situation, because God is worth it.

These qualities are then expressed in all aspects of life, whether routine and mundane, or in moments of distress or hardship.  All faithful obedience is honorable.

We believe boys should be exposed to a variety of areas to give them the experience needed to help them to flourish in their domestic, vocational, and interpersonal lives.  We also recognize no one father is a master in all areas, or even educated in some.  As a community of men therefore, we learn from each other, gifted men teaching our boys the specifics, encouraging further pursuits in areas of deeper interest.

Discipleship Starts At Home

Having been involved in man to man discipleship since 1999, I have come to realize that discipleship is best done between father and son, and in within a community of other fathers and sons.  Together we can build one another up into men who live obediently for a greater cause.

Manhood Is A Process

There is no one event that creates a man. There are certainly times of intense growth based on the situation, but becoming and man includes knowing our origin, developing conviction and living out the truth we have been imparted by Jesus Christ daily.

Men Need Men

There is an epidemic in our world related to isolation.  Men have become too accustomed to the phrase “every man is an island”. Truth is, we need community, and men need one another. As iron sharpens iron, men can serve as agents of encouragement as we fight for God’s best in one another.
292d28_cfee6c093cc742589eac38032bdbf36dFounder’s Notes: In 1999, before I was married or had children, God gave me the vision of starting a Father-Son camping ministry.  In 2014 this became a reality. In my opinion, it happened at just the right time, as our world struggles with its self image and ultimate source of truth. I am reminded daily as I step outside, that the creation around us shouts of God’s love for mankind.  This however is easily missed because of the innumerable distractions associated with a busy life, and deceptions about who we are and how we are to live under the headship of Christ. Wilderness trips, allow all of us to refocus on what is true: Our role, our goal, and our Lord.
