"As a husband, a father and a Christian man, I can tell you that few things are more important to me than seeing other Godly men rise up to impact the world around them. And this is more than a guide for discipleship or men's ministry, it's a manifesto! Pick up your sword, and get in the battle!"

Answer: Absolutely not. We've thought of (just about) everything. Once you've purchased "Boot Camp" and complete at least 50% of the training, we'll send you a discount code for "Foxholes" that'll subtract the cost of "Boot Camp."
Answer: You'd better believe it! We didn't create this training just to fund our ministry. We judge our success by the effectiveness of your group, and we know how hard it is to start one. It's our experience that if you put in the work, God will bridge any gaps – and we're here to assist you as long as you do your part. You'll be rewarded with a discount code once you reach 50%, as well as continued encouragement and new content as it becomes available.

Evan Dawson
Course Instructor

Within a five-year period, Evan Dawson went from actively dodging anything even remotely related to "Men's Ministry," to speaking onstage to thousands of men at events across the United States and abroad. This transformation was nothing short of miraculous, and a clear indication God was at work in Evan's life. It all started with an awkward handshake and simple invitation to a men's group from a guy named Billy. The rest, they say, is history. Hear the full story in the Foxholes course video titled, "Third Option Men."

Evan-training

Evan and his wife Ashley currently live in Alabaster, AL with their three children. When Evan isn't training men, he works as an Assets Protection Executive for a major retailer. If you can't find him there, he's probably jet lagged somewhere with a big smile on his face. Having travelled to more than 30 countries on 6 continents, leading youth and men on mission trips since becoming a follower of Christ nearly two decades ago, Evan has a deep passion for seeing lives changed by the power of God on foreign soil. Ask him about his next adventure; he'll save you a spot!

Answer: That's a loaded question (pun intended). No, this ministry is not officially associated with the military; however, many of our writers and small group leaders have served – and we support our troops. We can see why you'd ask that; much of the verbiage and marketing aspects of the training has a "military" feel to it. Coincidentally, many Scripture verses also compare the life of a Christian to that of a soldier/warrior. This is explained further in the Boot Camp video titled, "Top 6 Ways to TANK a Men's Ministry."
Answer: There is currently over an hour of training videos, divided into 10-15 minute segments (and more coming with our new "War Stories" interview series). How long it takes to complete every eBook and .pdf in your particular course will depend on how fast you read (currently over 750 pages with more digital content in the works). Remember – effective discipleship is not a sprint; it's a marathon.
Answer: Sure is! By enrolling in any of our courses, you'll be eligible to join our Pull the Pin™ program. It has never been easier to make a passive income while promoting an effective ministry. CLICK HERE for details.
