WHAT IS A BAND?
A band is a group of guys, up to 8 members, who commit to consistent and candid conversations, either in person or virtually. Bands can be local, where members meet in person, or virtual, where members meet by video/phone. Members of a band establish deep trust, which leads to meaningful conversations, offering new perspectives, clarity, someone to catch your blind spots, and true accountability. You can start one at any time, or you can seek out an existing band to join. Bands start/stop, and operate based on member created/enforced rules.
The mission of our meetups is to help hold one another accountable to being the best husbands and fathers we can be. It is okay to mess up and to admit failure; we are all human. The goal is to be as open and honest as possible to create an environment of complete vulnerability and trust. We always need to have each other’s backs and be there to support one another in tough times and celebrate one another in good times. Thanks for your commitment to this group and your desire to be intentional in becoming a better husband and father.
The Band Program is offered to our Summit Series & VIP Members.
