Intentional Dads is a platform that encourages dads to be intentional in raising their sons through monthly energetic and engaging experiences where fathers and sons can grow in their relationships with Jesus and each other.
Other potential topics in the future – servant leadership, being present, unconditional love, encouragement, discipline
Other potential events in the future – Ninja Warrior training facility, frisbee golf, “Navy Seal” training, Shoot the Hooch, Nerf Gun war
Intentional Dads is a framework for anyone to use. Start by identifying 5 – 10 other dads that are at the same stage in life and engage them. Get the full support of the wives (quality time with son = easy approval), and get started. Start with a planning session where each dad can take on a month or two for that school year and block your calendars for the year up front. Remember that the goal of each event is for the boys to leave asking the question, “When is our next iD event?”
If you are forming a group, email firstname.lastname@example.org so that your group will receive an invite to the Pumpkin Smash event on the Sunday afternoon following Halloween. This event will serve a collective event for all of our Intentional Dad groups. Each group is also encouraged to check out the book, “Raising a Modern Day Knight” by Robert Lewis. It could serve as a great foundation for generating the direction and goals of your own group.
