Father on Purpose

We're a community of dads who are committed to discipling our kids in love and obedience to Jesus Christ

Fatherhood is awesome! It's one of the most rewarding things we will experience in this life. It is full of joy, excitement, and purpose.

Fatherhood is sacred. Being a dad is more than just teaching our kids to throw a curveball or how to do algebra. It's the awesome responsibility of shaping a life and pouring the Gospel and godly wisdom into another soul.

Fatherhood is hard. There is no users guide to know how to handle the countless challenges raising kids throws at us! If you often feel overwhelmed and confused you're not alone. 

Father On Purpose is a place where you will be challenged by godly teaching. You'll receive the practical tools you need for raising and discipling your kids. Most of all, you'll be connected with a community of like-minded men to encourage you, exhort you, and sharpen you to excel at being a dad!

Our Doctrinal Position

Father on Purpose is devoted to helping fathers like you build the next generation of godly men and women under the Lordship of Jesus Christ. We trust the Bible as both our foundation and guide.

We believe:

  • Jesus Christ is God’s one and only son, who died for our sins and arose from the dead. (1 Corinthians 15:1-8 & John 3:16)
  • The Bible is God’s inspired word – a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path. (2 Timothy 3:16 & Psalm 119:105)
  • Every person has worth as God’s creation, but all have sinned and fall short of God’s glory. (Romans 3:23)
  • Forgiveness of sins and the promise of eternal life are available to those who trust Christ as Savior and Lord. (John 3:16)
  • Those who accept Christ have repented of sin and confessed their faith in Him. (Romans 10:9 & Acts 2:38)
  • The Church is the body of Christ on earth, empowered by the Holy Spirit and exists to evangelize the lost and edify the saved. (Ephesians 4:1-16)
  • Jesus Christ will one day return to earth and reign forever as King of kings and Lord of lords. (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)
