I feel a strong and consistent calling to get men outdoors.  There is a huge outdoor deficit among men today.  They are afraid or intimidated or just don’t get how important it is. 

I also see a huge father hunger among men for their own fathers, and doubts about fathering their own children.

My Christian faith has never been stronger, but I am so frustrated with organized churches.  Jesus went to the wilderness, or went up a mountain or off by himself to reconnect with his father.  It seems to be a point we miss and don’t follow.  He would then return focused and ready to heal others and teach scripture.

I feel my mission is to help men heal and understand their callings through faith in the outdoors.  I am to teach, encourage and foster wilderness experiences (especially solo experiences) for healing, renewal and discerning divine purpose.  As Christian men we are then called to return to our communities to help heal others.

I feel this as a strong calling, but I also want to be profitable doing this. 

Any suggestions in putting wheels to these passions?

Maybe you could organize and guide groups of men on outdoor retreats.  You could do some for men and some for father/son groups...?

Do you specifically want to work with men or are you open to working with children? I have heard of some fantastic programs that work with inner city youth and expose them to the outdoor activities. This sounds like it is different but maybe there is something intertwined with that.
