Huddles are designed for men to gather and answer two questions: “What is God teaching you?” and, “What are you doing about it?” No matter where you are on your spiritual journey, Huddles are a safe place where you can build authentic relationships and connect with God.

Huddles meet either weekly or bi-weekly on an ongoing basis.

What is the Blood Brothers Challenge?

The Blood Brothers Challenge is best described as an Expedition, an adventure with a purpose. Blood Brothers engages men over a period of 6 months in groups Guided by “common, ordinary” men. The Expedition they venture into together includes daily personal action and exploration along with periodic, adventurous group outdoor activities and discussions. Being challenged physically, mentally, and spiritually as a group fosters deep bonds and genuine relationships – true brotherhood. It is these relationships that become the foundation for men to receive and deliver constructive challenge from one another. The Expedition positions them to be awakened to truth, as God uses creation and their brothers to speak to their hearts. Blood Brothers is NOT a Bible study, accountability group, small group, or church service. It is an effective tool for churches – any size and location – to reach the hearts of men with lasting results.

What is the time commitment required to participate?

Your Braid will meet for approximately 2-3 hours once per month for 6 months for what we call a Basecamp. You will meet with your Brothers for approximately 1 – 2 hours each week for Map Checks for deeper personal discussions. You will also need to carve out time to take on a personal challenge each month.

What does it cost to participate in the Blood Brothers Challenge?

The cost to take The Blood Brothers Challenge is $60 per individual, which is less than most of you will spend on coffee in the next month. Costing less than coffee, how could you pass up this opportunity to find meaning, purpose, and true brotherhood? When you send us this month’s coffee money you will receive a Blood Brothers Welcome Box with all the essential materials that will be used throughout The Blood Brothers Challenge.

What demographic does Blood Brothers serve?

Blood Brothers is designed for men age 18 and up. While there are participants over 60, the average age range of participants is 25-45 due to the physical nature of some of the challenges. We strongly encourage men of all ages, over 18, to participate in order to bring a diverse perspective of insight into your braid. Many presume that Blood Brothers appeals only to outdoors-men, yet experience has taught us that pursuing God in the rawness and beauty of creation cuts to the core of every man, regardless of age and personal interests. Blood Brothers engages men who are just kicking the tires of Christianity and those who have recently begun their walk on a deeper level, but it’s not just for them. It strengthens and fortifies those who are much further along in their pursuit of Christ in a community of Brothers digging in together to discover new levels of intimacy and reliance on Jesus.

Blood Brothers Challenge Welcome Boxes cost $60 and can be purchased at:
