Let us help you come alive!

We know that there are a lot of pressures on men these days that keep them from being the men that God created them to be, and we would like to be a part of changing that and helping men to walk in the freedom Jesus provides. We do that primarily through small groups and individual coaching.

Small Groups

Meet regularly with a small group of other men.


Meeting one-on-one with Doug.

Small Groups
Grow in faith. Walk it out with other men.

Doug hosts and facilitates several men’s small groups at different times to help men grow in faith and walk it out as the men God created them to be.

Are you tired of going through the motions day-by-day and/or having a stagnant faith life? If you want to feel alive again (or even for the first time), join an 8-week journey with other men (with the possibility of continuing longer).

We will discuss content based on John Eldredge’s Wild at Heart, Michael Thompson’s Heart of A Warrior, or other sources that are intended to remind and help men live into who God created them to be, break through what’s standing in the way, and draw them closer to Jesus as their source of life and freedom.

Something happened. It might have been yesterday. It might have been years ago. But it hurt. And it changed you. And unless you forgive those who wronged you, the heart wound will become infected and spread. Eventually, you can become a prisoner of your own wounded heart. If the story ended here, you would be hurt beyond healing. But the Good News is, it is not finished.

This group meets for 6 weeks discussing the video series content and using the workbook from 70X7 Finding Peace by Forgiving Others…And Yourself. In the videos, Bruce Wilkinson reveals from the words of Jesus how you can find the freedom and peace your heart longs for, and discover forgiveness that is for real and forever.

This is an ongoing group that meets weekly for men who want to journey together to live out their faith as God has made them at their core. The purpose is to uplift, renew, refresh, encourage, strengthen, and equip men for being Kingdom Warriors to advance God’s Kingdom in all aspects of life. Each meeting is a brief respite, a time for men to step off the battlefield of life and come together to be reminded of the Kingdom they are fighting for, to be equipped with what they need to fight well, and to be strengthened and encouraged by other Kingdom Warriors. The group meets for an hour and a half weekly.

Most men are familiar with coaching from their days in sports, where the coach encouraged and pushed them to be their best. The coaching we provide does that too, but in other areas of life, such as faith, fatherhood, marriage, and work. Your coach meets with you one-on-one to learn the desires of your heart and works with you to identify goals, map out a plan to achieve those goals (including overcoming obstacles), and journeying with you as you work the plan. Coaching can help you get unstuck and think beyond what you can do on your own.
