You're not a dad by accident.
So go be a father on purpose

You're a dad who wants to disciple your children in Jesus Christ.
Intentionally and faithfully. On purpose. We can help you on that journey.

Welcome, Trailmen friends!

You and I may have met before at a Trail Life USA event. I lead a ministry called Manhood Journey, and we've been proud Trail Life USA partners from the beginning. We strive to help help dads leave a godly legacy in the lives of their kids. That's why I'm thrilled you've dropped by to learn more about our online community, Father On Purpose.

Father on Purpose gives you the tools you need to navigate the challenges of raising your kids in a godly way. Each week, you'll receive a resource – usually a video – designed to instruct, encourage, and challenge you toward excelling at fatherhood. The resources are brief, easy-to-consume, and always include an action plan you can implement quickly.

You'll also be able to interact with growing network of other dads who are committed to discipling our kids toward Christian faith and maturity.

We've even added a special bonus item just for Trailmen. We hope you'll join us today!
