Recently, Jacob and I had the privilege of leading approximately 100 men of Violet Baptist Church (Columbus, Ohio) in a Surf the Woods retreat at Scioto Hills Camp in southern Ohio. It never gets old seeing the Lord touch down in the lives of men as I tell the stories of my life as an entrepreneur and adventurer. I'm always amazed at how the Lord uses my brokenness more then my mountaintop experiences to touch men. We all enjoy sharing our successes but it's the hardships that unlock places deep within us.
I just recently completed the Surf the Woods 6 week small group study. We are partnering with Violet Baptist to test it. I introduced the material to the men at the retreat by facilitating week 1 on Saturday morning. Over the next 5 weeks, they will continue the material together. I'm praying things go well. I have coached so many guys in these powerful principles over the years, and have seen God really use it to help men walk more effectively in their own God-inspired dreams. This is the first time a group will be going through this material without me as the facilitator. Join me in praying that it will have impact.
Look for the study on our resource page in the coming weeks. We will make it available for free download. Over the next 6 months, I plan to develop a YouTube video for each week of the study. The video can be used to help introduce each weeks material.
Never stop dreaming! God has big plans for each of you.
