Three words: Dads…Sons…Fire!

Looking to connect with your son, dig into Scripture, and maybe grab a zip line? This event is for you. Join us as we connect fathers and sons over a campfire, a lake, a ropes course, hiking trails, and a beach. Did we mention you can book time on a zip line?

Dad, you’ll leave this event knowing:

  • You have the skills to connect with your son
  • How to help your son resist the pull of this world
  • How to get your son to open up and talk to you
  • How to gain your wife’s undying devotion and respect
  • Tips and tools for driving meaningful conversations
