Invigorating male community leadership across Cape Fear

The body is made to be used. Without work, it withers away. But with regular training, we can become physically, psychologically, and emotionally durable.


We are not supposed to live alone. Life is not worthwhile without being in communion with others. We find strength in numbers for accountability and encouragement.


We are part of something much bigger than ourselves. Our personal strength can be a strength for others, and the purpose our family and community needs to thrive.
