Help the boys in your ministry cultivate positive
relationships with their fathers or the special men in their
The Great Outdoors
Invite boys and their special guests to a fishing and
camping weekend. Arrange a location, and have experienced men lead
fishing, hiking, or rock climbing outings during the weekend.
Include campfire devotions, and bring along hot dogs and
marshmallows to roast.
If you’ve got a major or minor league baseball team
nearby, have your boys invite their special guests for a day at the
ballpark. Most stadiums sell tickets at group rates, and often the
name of your group will be announced sometime during the game.
If you’ve got kids graduating from kindergarten or
elementary, include a blessing ceremony in your graduation
festivities. Have each special man in the child’s life stand behind
his child. Then read the blessing that Aaron and his sons used to
bless the Israelites (Numbers 6:24-26). Have the adults say prayers
of blessing over their children too.
