What is the intent of this group?
To empower Godly men to proclaim, live, and model their calling to be Men, Fathers, Husbands, Leaders, and Friends in the environment in which they find themselves. To walk boldly during the good, great, and the difficult times. To learn to trust God at all times. To establish at least one accountability partner from the session and be willing to be open and honest regarding their walk associated with the tools learned during the session. To agree to co-lead a future session designed to empower other men to live out their true role as Fathers, Husbands, and Leaders. What are some of the elements of this group? (Some selected excerpts are below)
Fatherhood (and Leadership)
Fatherhood (and Leadership) turns out to be a complex and unique phenomenon with huge consequences for the emotional and intellectual growth of children (and teams). A father (and a leader) brings unique contributions to the job of parenting a child (and building a team) that no one else can replicate. Fathers parent differently.
Have a distinct style of communication and interaction with their children. These differences are critical for a child’s development. Work with their sons to understand proper male sexuality, hygiene and behavior in age-appropriate ways. Provide their girls with a better opportunity to have healthy relationships with the opposite sex because they learned from their fathers how proper men act toward women.
Have a distinct style of communication and interaction with their people. These differences are critical for a team’s development. Play differently. They teach that mental, emotional, or physical abuse is not acceptable. They communicate that everyone should be striving to make the work environment an enjoyable and healthy one.
Have a distinct style of communication and interaction with their spouse. These differences are critical for a marriage’s development.
Help to build confidence; encouraging your spouse to climb and excel just a little higher, reach their goals just a little faster, tackle adversity just a little harder.
Provide their marriage with opportunities to have a healthy relationship in the midst of difficult times.
