And just like that—boom—March is almost over! Here's your quick rundown of the madness that was March at Manhood Journey.
March's highlight reel
Kent live in-studio on The Michael DelGiorno Show in Nashville, TN
Fatherhood vision event in Kentucky
Men's father-son event in Rome, Georgia
Kent and I took a roadtrip from Louisville, Kentucky to Rome, Georgia by invitation of First Presbyterian Church in Rome, GA. We enjoyed connecting with dads and sons and having some bbq dinner! We're grateful for pastors who also happen to be dads—like Pastor Jonathan Schwartz—the Associate Pastor and head of Family Ministries at First Presbyterian. Kent keynoted the event and discussed the characteristics of biblical manhood.

Word is getting out that Manhood Journey is the go-to resource for disciple-making dads! We're blessed to have growing relationships with other like-minded ministries in the disciple-making movement—both for dads AND for pastors and church leaders.
This month, Radical.net and Churchleaders.com featured two of our posts.
A vital verse for dads takes what Ephesians 6:4 says to fathers and breaks the verse down looking for practical ways we can apply this most powerful verse to being a disciple-making dad in our homes.
Churchleaders.com picked up a blog post we wrote called 3 things the awesome husband does: #1 The godly husband prays for his wife. #2 The godly husband encourages his wife. #3 The godly husband grocery shops for his wife. I know, crazy list. You gotta read the full post.
Kent has several speaking engagements already lined up for 2019. He recently keynoted a special event for dads at Lake Aurora Christian Camp & Retreat Center. Kent taught from James 4 about how to handle your anger as a dad. We praise God for the 210+ dads at this event—see pics below! One dad had this to say about the event, "Just wanted to say you crushed it. I appreciated your straight-forward and practical style. Tons of good content. I benefited greatly. Keep up the good work!"
We're pumped to bring this special father-son retreat. Register before March 31st to get the best price.
