Want to talk about how we can help you engage more fathers and sons?
Let us help you launch a father-son study experience.
We are a Bible-based approach that helps dads become disciple makers in their homes. We’re a non-profit organization based in Louisville, KY.
No they don’t. Our studies are built to help “regular” dads dive in and engage with no prior training or experience.
Boys ages 8-18 are the right ages to get the most out of this experience. And, even mixing the ages is healthy and leads to powerful dialogue and relationship building.
Yes! We want your young men and your – eh hem – “older” men to walk through scripture together. This helps a dad gain confidence, hear what’s on his son’s heart, and have a natural follow-up conversation after the group time.
No, but each boy would ideally have a male chaperone.
We suggest you have 1 Table Leader for every 5 Dads attending. Also, we recommend you recruit a Group Facilitator to work with you on launching and overseeing any larger group experience. As long as you have 1:5 ratio of Table Leaders-to-Dads, your group could be as small or large as your congregation or community will accommodate. So, for a group of 5 Dads, you’ll have 10-12 total fathers and sons together in the study.
The costs for the church are basically zero. You might serve coffee or snacks during your sessions, but there’s no charge for the services or digital assets that Manhood Journey provides to help you get going.
Each dad in the group will buy a Dad Discussion Kit. These are $37 and they include a Hardcopy Study Book, Digital Download version of the study book, and a “Dad Boot-Up” series of emails that coach him through whatever module you’ll be working through.
Well, that’s up to you. In one format, you could have 5 Tables full of Fathers and Sons, with 5 Table Leaders and 1 Group Facilitator. Or, you could let the “table” units just meet up on their own in their homes. The content will work in either scenario. Clearly, if you have them all meet at tables in your church, it’s a bit easier to control the flow of information and discussion; but, can be tricky to get a batch of dads and sons to all have the same night available. Rest assured, whether you use a “multiple table” approach or a “in home” approach, the format and content will work well and we’ll help you along the way.
