Legends: A Christian Book Club For Men
What do you think of when you think of a legend?
An old epic story?
Something at the bottom of a map?
A man with a big house and a flash car?
The purpose of this wee group is simple.
- We want to redefine what it means to be a legend in the 21st Century.
- We want to encourage and equip men with the tools, encouragement and community that we all so desperately need, but so often lack.
- We want to create a space where men can be raw and deal with the stuff that’s going on in their life.
- We wanna see men rise up to be all they can be in their personal, professional and spiritual lives.
Let’s do it and let’s do it together.
Our first book: Fathered by God by John Eldredge
This book goes right for the jugular.
It’s about how the relationship with our dad’s impact our lives in ways we can’t even fathom.
(Including how it can warp our perception on God.)
It’s an absolute belter and surfaces a lot of things many of us have perhaps kept buried for a long time.
The audiobook is also great if you’re not a big reader.
Life is busy and we all have responsibilities.
That’s why we wanna make this group as flexible, yet as impactful as possible.
Here’s a couple of options for you to consider.
- Join the Facebook Group
- Get the book + free study guide
- Discuss each chapter either at our weekly gathering or in the FB group
- Connect with other men online/offline
- Dive deeper and pray about things that come up.
At our weekly gatherings we’ll go through a chapter, discuss the questions in the study guide and pray for each other.
It’ll only take an hour and you’re welcome to take part in as little or as much as you feel comfortable doing.
Feel free to dip in and out whenever you feel like it.
Feel free to do it all online.
Feel free to do it all offline.
Whatever works for you and your schedule.
That’s what this is all about.
Not a burden or yet another thing to add to your to-do list.
But something that gives life and energies you for the rest of your week.
Any questions, just reach out.

“Legends is a group of men committed to personal growth, community and walking with God through this tough, beautiful life.
We pray, we go through books and we don’t shy away from the hard, raw stuff of life.
It’s is a space to share about what’s going on and craft meaningful relationships that will help us go the distance.
Let’s make our mark in our families, community and the world.
We can’t do it alone, so let’s do it together.”
