When we work with churches, we often tell them to focus on two things with their men: getting them into the regular study of God’s Word, and authentic relationships with other men. That’s why at the close of each of our men’s events we challenge men to join a group of other men for life-on-life discipleship. One of our long-time ministry allies sent the following note:
Our men’s group had a retreat with Pat back in May 2004. Pat asked the men to stand up if we were not in a small group and challenged us to try one for 6 weeks. The core group is still together supporting, encouraging and strengthening each other for over 12 years now!
