Bootcamp begins...

This week we began our young men's discipleship bootcamp. My learning curve continues as I look for new ways to gather men together for openness, honesty and spiritual growth.

Inspired by Matt Hatch of Mosaic Church Leeds, this year we are running seven week high intensity discipleship boot camps.

Six of us met for our first session this week. The sessions are running from 6.30am to 8.30am. This is quite early for students! The sessions include participation, studies, stories, prayer and memory verses and set reading.

In our first session we discussed expectations from ourselves and from each other. I gave a framework and we also opened the Bible together. I am pleased with the way the guys responded and am really looking forward to being together again next week.

Over the seven weeks some of the themes we will be looking at will include Handling the sword; Self Leadership; Sexual Purity; True Greatness and Biblical Masculinity.

We met in the house of some of our guys. At around 7am one of their house mates walked in. His face was one of utter bewilderment. Initially he thought we were still sat up from the night before. Then he realised we were not and he was even more confused. He finally remarked, 'this is horrible' and walked away with apparent disgust and confusion. It was very funny. :-)
