September is almost over. October is approaching. Here are three things to know right now—so we can help more dads. Please review each of the three things—and see whether you can get involved, share with a friend or let your pastor know about what we’re doing to engage more dads—and help them become the disciple-makers they’re intended to be. This is The Loop September 2019.

#3 For Church Leaders: we’s helped hundreds of churches—can help you engage more dads.
As you know, we exist to help dads become disciple-makers in their homes. One great way to do that is for us to help church leaders engage dads. One of our new initiatives is to arm church leaders with tools and resources to better engage dads.
#1 Lay-led and dad-funded: We want dads engaged, not just watching leaders talk. Our tools will help men gather, get rolling and have meaningful conversations. We even make deploying lay-leaders simple. And, it’s super affordable for each dad to participate. Easy on the leaders and the pocketbook.
#2 Runs with your existing schedule: You can create a whole separate day and time for this, but you don’t have to. This short-term father and son study can be bolted onto your existing weekday evening events or even as a short-run small group option. Get fathers more engaged with their sons without reinventing the wheel.
#3 6 sessions – you pick the timeframe: Some churches have used six weekly meetups to walk through one of our studies. Some have compressed it into a weekend campout. There’s some flexibility in how you launch, but the commitment is easy and brief for the dads: 6 sessions. Even super busy dads can commit to that.
Please be praying that we could help more churches and church leaders engage dads. Visit our page for Church Leaders to learn more.
