Into The Wilderness was founded to encourage men to live the lives God has called them to live. Our goal is to transform men’s lives by renewing their faith, re-energizing their families, and restoring their masculinity.
In the Gospel of Luke, chapter 4, the Holy Spirit led Jesus “into the wilderness” to be tested for 40 days. I’m calling on men of faith to put themselves to the test; to push themselves to be better men, better husbands, and better fathers. We need to go “into the wilderness” and come out stronger. We need to face our demons and conquer them. We need to face hardship and come out on top. We need to immerse ourselves in scripture and learn to apply it when we are tempted.
I want to strengthen the modern Christian man. I want men to renew and strengthen their faith by daily Scripture and prayer. I want men to re-energize their families by being the leaders we’re called to be. And I want men to restore their masculinity by fighting back against the powers of the world that want to diminish the Biblical role of men, husbands, and fathers.
I’m no expert. I’m not a counselor, a pastor, or a therapist. I’m just a man who went through the darkness and through the grace of God, came out into the light of His glory. I lived a secret, sinful, and meaningless life for many years. Then, I took the lessons of Romans 12:2, “Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.” I had to fight back against the way the world wants me to live and transform myself into the person God wants me to be by changing the way I think. Only then, did I find the meaning and purpose in life I so desperately sought through wordly means.
So I challenge you to join me as we journey “Into The Wilderness” to become the providers, protectors, and pastors that God has called Christian men to be.
