A Strong Place for Boys to Grow Up as Men


As parents, we're so often trapped in the things we've got to do and we forget to concentrate on how we're gonna launch our young men particularly.

A boy needs a male-centric environment that celebrates who he is. He needs men to lead him into biblical masculinity, and he needs an organization that's focused on his strengths, that's built for who he is as a boy.

At Trail Life USA, we are a champion for boys. We believe in boys. We think that they're amazing creations, created in the image of God, and they need to be recognized for their unique contributions.

Promise Keepers Virtual Fatherhood Summit is a fast-paced, free event with practical talk from top teachers. We’ll discuss the real issues impacting your family and kids. 

But we know that fatherhood topics can't all be addressed in a one-time online event. So, the Fatherhood Summit kicks off a 14-day challenge that will place you side by side virtually with other men as you build up your fathering skills in concrete ways. The program and follow up resources are beneficial whether you are father to kids in the home, a grandfather, or you mentor or coach kids. The interactive community provides opportunities to speak into the lives of other dads and young fathers - we need you in this challenge as iron sharpens iron.

Our goal is to equip, connect, and activate you in an interactive brotherhood community known as the Promise Keepers App.

We'll walk you through it every step of the way! Just register today.

It was a pretty awesome experience as usual. We were reminded of whose we are and what we are supposed to be doing. We were reminded that we *are* the light in this broken world. Nick Vujicic certainly reminded us that our personal obstacles are no match for the power of God.

How has your thinking and awareness changed this week? First thing I did Monday morning was to pay for the breakfast of the guy behind me in the Dunkin Donuts drive through. Something simple that I can occasionally do to keep my "outward" muscles moving. It's so easy to drop back into the ho-hum of the day to day routines we often call normal. Let's make some new habits, create a new normal. 

Have you downloaded the PK App yet? If not, please do - it will help you with an amazing amount of male-oriented content as well as the ability to connect with other PK followers worldwide. In addition, there is a Maryland Coalition of Men's Ministries group for those in Maryland.

Android Store or Apple Store

We'll do this again next year (with a different marketing plan - I learned a few things ;-)

In the meantime, lets keep building relationships and continue our development into the men God has called us to be. We can certainly see the value in that - now we need to pursue it.


"For if a man belongs to Christ, he is a new person. The old life is gone. New life has begun." 2 Cor 5:17


Happy Fathers Day!

I am thankful for today. Not because attention is centered more around me but because it reminds me to think about what I'm doing as a father, a mentor and spiritual provider. It reminds me that I need to keep my eye on the ball and not get discouraged over temporary setbacks. To purposely stay the course that has been laid out for me and pursue developing my children and grandchildren for their futures. What an impact I can have! What a legacy I can leave! What a gift I can leave the world in the character and faithfulness of my kids and grandkids.

Yesterday, Promise Keepers released another seminar on this very subject. I encourage you to watch it and embrace your spiritual leadership potential in your family - to lead by example and lead in love.

Then, download the PK App for 10 days of purposeful exercises to help develop your leadership skills and assist with your honest relationships with other men.
