New WhatsApp group coming soon

Hey bros. Our Thursday group has been meeting for more than 2 years now and the contact lists have become quite outdated.

To help refresh our current active group participant list we are going to migrate into a new WhatsApp group.

Over the next couple weeks we will be intentional about providing plenty of opportunities for people to RSVP for the new group. Once we have the migration complete we will remove wild at heart and Thursday discipleship groups.

Watch for the notices and make sure and notify Craig or George that you would like to stay connected with everyone in WhatsApp.

Iron sharpens iron!

Waking the Dead

Wild at Heart helped men get their hearts back.

Jesus said, “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” That’s the offer of Christianity, from God himself.

Just look at what happens when people are touched by Jesus―the blind see, the lame walk, the deaf hear, the dead are raised to life. In other words, to be touched by God is to be restored. To become all God meant you to be. That is what Christianity is supposed to do for you―make you whole, set you free, bring you fully alive.

But Jesus also warned that the path to that life is narrow, and few people would find it. You’ll notice few have. Waking the Dead will help you find that life, see the fierce battle over your heart, and embrace all that God has for you.

There is so much more. Do you want it?

Pick up your copy of John Eldredge’s book and join us starting Thursday May 4th as we step into the next chapter of our shared journey of redemption

Waking the Dead

And if your extra-inspired also grab a copy of the companion workbook as we also have the option of stepping into the material a bit deeper than just reading it.

Waking the Dead companion

Both are available on Amazon as a set for as little as $13

We don’t want anyone to miss out on this next season, if cost is an issue reach out privately to Craig or George and we’ll be happy to cover the cost.

See you there!

What are your spiritual gifts?

Do you know?

Have you ever wondered?

1 Corinthians 12:4-11

4 There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. 5 There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. 6 There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.

7 Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. 8 To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, 9 to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, 10 to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues,[a] and to still another the interpretation of tongues.[b] 11 All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he distributes them to each one, just as he determines.

If you want to know what God’s will is for your life you must first know how He created you. What are your natural abilities that light your soul on fire and have the greatest impact for the kingdom.

Come join us and For Freedom Outreach in May for this 1/2-day Seminar/Workshop

What an incredible weekend!

4 people from our WAH group attended the conference (Craig, George, Charles & Roland) and 2 others from Fellowship Monrovia made it as well (Ben & David)

Overall there were more than 120 men from 33 churches throughout the Southern California area… and what a sincere and God seeking bunch of men they were!

And of course the Angeles Crest team did a great job feeding and entertaining us with things like tri tip and paintball!

And we can’t say enough about the For Freedom Outreach brothers who did an AMAZING job carefully guiding us through the 10 sessions of Wild at Heart Bootcamp. The book and video series is only the beginning and I can’t stress enough that if any of the material resonates with you even a little bit then a live retreat MUST be experienced first-hand.

I personally had revealed to me several layers of hurts and resentments that I honestly would have sworn on a stack of bibles that I had “already dealt with”. Who knew there were still wounds making withdraws on checks that were written decades ago!

The next training camp is September 14-17, 2017. Whether you’ve been before or this will be your first time I again can’t recommend more highly that you give this a chance to rock your world.

Thank you Layne and all the guys for treating every man with respect and great care and empowering us to claim the authority given to us by the Cross of Christ and reclaim our hearts as we rediscovered our God given desires for adventure, battle and beauty!

If you’d like to learn more just reach out to one of us brothers who attended the camp, I’m sure we’d love to share more. You can also visit the For Freedom Outreach website or Ransomed Heart Ministries website for more information.

Blessings in Christ


p.s. for those that attended please be encouraged to add your voice to this post and share what the weekend meant to you!

Time for a change

If you’ve been fully immersed in the opportunities to learn and grow at Fellowship Monrovia this past 10 weeks then you are right in the middle of a transition.

The Long Walk of Obedience (Book of James Study) has finished

The Wild at Heart series has finished

Lent is over

Good Friday is behind us

And this morning we awaken to an empty tomb!!!

He is risen… HE IS RISEN INDEED!

Next weekend is the local 4-day Wild at Heart retreat at Angels Crest Christian camp

And then….

Lord we call you into this place. The men are hungry for more of you and we desire to be more like you. Continue to fill us with the Holy Spirit that we may live out more authentically your command to love our wives, make disciples, be holy as You are holy and bring the adventure!

I’m all in with whatever He brings – how about you guys?

Fellowship Monrovia Thursday Men’s Discipleship Group

Resource Center

This is not an official FM website but instead a personal endeavor to provide a space for resources, prayer and reflection on our shared journey of discipleship.

There is a unique type of encouragement and empowerment that comes only when men come together in the common pursuit of God’s healing with expectation of discovering God’s personal call on their life.

Whether battling addictions or walking in freedom and giving back, this is not a realm we ever outgrow or complete this side of heaven. It can however be like a favorite pub or table at your favorite restaurant; always welcoming and filled with relationships that breath life into the soul.

So pull up chair, you’re among friends, brothers, you are family in Christ.

As Iron Sharpens Iron – So One Man Sharpens Another
