What Is TG?

Mission

Provides evaluated real life experiences, mentoring, and intentional Biblical teaching in the context of work, wilderness, and worship.


Vision

To train and establish young men in Christ as future leaders in families, the workplace, and ministry.


Core Values

EXPERIENCE
Most men learn lessons of life through engaging their physical world. The growth, maturity, and success of a man cannot be solely based on performance and results.

MENTORING
The traditions and lessons of the past are being lost when an older generation stays silent. There must be a transfer of wisdom from old to young through relationship.

CHARACTER
Who God really is shapes a man’s character leading to a focused and committed response to life, challenging the passivity prevalent in our culture/in our world.

COMMUNITY
Young men grow when surrounded by seasoned and vulnerable older men and women as well as peers sumbitted to the same purpose.


Core Competencies

We believe in a holistic approach to developing young men.

EMOTIONAL
Being aware of our emotions and valuing them as an important part of how God created us is vital to the maturity of young men.

MENTAL
What we think about God and ourselves is the single most important thing in this life. Thoughts lead to beliefs that motivate us to action.

PHYSICAL
Men learn valuable lessons related to life and God by engaging their physical world. We create opportunities for young men to be tested and challenged at work and in the wilderness.

SPIRITUAL
It isn’t enough for a young man to have parents who know and love God. Critical to the development and training of a young man is his taking ownership of his own faith and relationship with God. To know God and to be known by God is a central desire of every man’s heart.
