  • It takes time for males to bond. They don’t go from 0 to 60 instantly.
  • Men tend to build relationships shoulder to shoulder, so recreational and service opportunities are a means to helping men connect as well as use their gifts.
  • Small group discussion at seminars and on retreats also help men connect.
  • It is helpful to think of these activities as part of the process of helping men move down the discipleship path towards deeper connection with some brothers.
