We realize that Boot Camp in the midst of a global pandemic requires us to do things a little different. We also know that  “God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind” (2 Timothy 1:7) and that he calls us to be bold in our faith while being wise as serpants.

Our desire is to provide a safe environment for all Boot Camp attendees with as little disruption as possible to the Boot Camp experience. All attendees are asked and expected to follow the plans below. We understand that for some men the following may be doing too much and for others it may not be doing enough. The plan below has been prayed over and yet if circumstances change, we will make revisions as led by the Spirit and promptly update this page.

With the above in mind, we ask each man to ask God whether this Fall Boot Camp is for you. He knows best! This won’t be our last boot camp and we understand that some may choose to attend at a later date. Nevertheless, for those that choose to attend this fall, we are committed to the following plan and eagerly anticipate our time together with each other and with God!
