Welcome to The Loop, your inside track on what's happening at Manhood Journey. In this brief monthly post, we share a few hand-picked stories about the ministry. You'll find out what God's up to, learn about new products, hear testimonials, and get a peek at our prayer list.
August has been busy with new blog posts and events to help you. Here's the rundown of the news you need from August:
1. FIGHT NIGHT > The event for fathers to fight for their sons
Fight Night was a big win last night! We had 225 dads and sons come together for two hours. Jonny Mac, Next Gen Lead Pastor at Southeast Christian Church preached (here's the facebook live stream). We have fun doing 4-way joust, Thumb Wars, worshipping, praying and forming small groups.
2. Father On Purpose > DALLAS
That's right. The event to help dads build the next generation of godly men — Father On Purpose > DALLAS is happening! Find details here. Pretty soon. We'll announce more details about our keynote speaker. Trust us, it'll be a major league announcement.
3. State of Biblical Fatherhood
We launched the State of Biblical Fatherhood earlier in August. We're amazed at the responses and the number of downloads. We trust you're finding the survey results and the helpful tips—well—helpful! Here's Kent and his son Jonathan, they were live with Michael DelGiorno on SuperTalk 99.7 WTN. Thanks, Mr. DelGiorno, for having us on!
4. Top Blog Post for August
I love telling y'all about the top blog post o' the month. Which post was it for August? Nope, it wasn't The five vital principles for intentionally discipling you son. It wasn't even Back to school 2017 > 3 must-haves for the intentional dad. Both were awesome and lots of dads are finding these posts helpful. But no, they weren't tops.
The top post for August was...Do these 3 things today and you'll be an awesome husband. Guaranteed.
Join us in praying about the following topics:
- That the 225 dads and sons who attended FIGHT NIGHT will come back with friends on 9/17 for FIGHT NIGHT Round 2 > Group Launch Night at Southeast Christian Church.
- For wisdom in connecting with churches in and around Arlington, Texas about Father On Purpose > DALLAS.
- That we keep adding donors. Especially monthly ones!
