Waking the Passion

OUR PURPOSE – WHY WE EXIST

Freeing men to Live Real connections with God, others and themselves

OUR VISION

Seeing thousands of men set free to discover their true purpose through Getaway Weekends, covenant friendships, community and courageously living it out in service to their family, neighbor and God.

OUR FOCUS

Men who:

  • Find themselves isolated and “stuck” in a busy, crowded and hurried world, even in church
  • Have been turned off by some organized religions with their rules, hypocrisy and distorted images of God
  • Desire to find significance in something more than possessions, performance, power and status

OUR STRATEGY – THE CHURCH PARTNERSHIP INITIATIVE – ( CPI )

A Catalyst for Men of Faith

  • Serving Pastors, Ministry Leaders and their men
  • Creating a GETAWAY WEEKEND in a countryside lodge setting to serve as a catalyst for men to experience:
    • deeper connections with Christ,
    • greater insight to their own hearts
    • more authentic friendships with other men

The CPI Getaway Weekend can be customized to help start or enhance:

  • Small groups for Men’s discipleship /or a support network
  • Men of Service- seeing men step out of passivity and into service for their family and community. (Church being one of many ways to serve)

We take men toward:

  • Discovering the power of his story in God’s unfolding plan
  • Developing his whole life body/mind & soul
  • Resilience – Finding the courage to start again after failures
  • Awareness… I AM NOT ALONE
