New 4RMations (New Formations) is a non-denominational discipleship ministry equipping men to live full, adventurous lives in Jesus through the 4Rs of Relationship, Rescue, Restoration and Release, so they may become the men of influence God created them to be, and lead others to do and be the same.
At your core, you are an adventurer, longing for the beauty of the outdoors, passionate about what you do, and you know God is supposed to fit into all of that. But, somewhere along the line it all got blurry; duty and busyness creates a fog. You’d like to recover and harness your passion, purpose and direction and do it with truth, honesty and integrity. And, you really could use the support of other men on this same journey.
SO, WHAT’S NEXT?
You can say, “I don’t have the time.”
Oh, man, we know. Life is busy! And, we can make all kinds of excuses for not having the time to do the things that are important. Will you make the time?
You can say, “I don’t have the money.”
Yeah, we get it. Life is expensive! Everything in life has a cost associated with it. This is no different. Investing in yourself pays great dividends for you and your family. Will you find the money?
Or, you can say, “Okay, I’m willing to take the risk.”
Awesome! We have a simple track that is easy to get plugged into; we call them phases. Will you join us?
PHASE ONE: BASE CAMP
Start here. Hang out with us at Base Camp. It is the best place to get to know us. These are genuine opportunities to connect with men just like you around the kind of things guys love. Base Camp is filled with laughter, good food, encouragement, and a theme on living the masculine journey.
We regularly gather for things like:
- Bonfires & Meet Ups
- Movie & Card Nights
- Oyster Roasts & BBQs
- Fishing & Hiking Adventures
Learn more about Base Camp.
PHASE TWO: BAND OF BROTHERS
We all need allies to help us fight the battles we face. We encourage our men to band together with 2-3 others on the journey to fight for each other’s hearts, to have each other’s backs. A Band of Brothers is a community where wisdom and encouragement lead men toward wholeness and action. The goal is to become free and settled men with nothing to hide, nothing to prove, and nothing to fear.
Learn more about Band Of Brothers.
PHASE THREE: CALL TO ARMS
Call To Arms is for those ready to go deeper into discovering and owning their unique and crucial role in the Larger Story, eager to take back Enemy territory, and ready to live life to the full. The goal is to become well-oriented men…men who know who they are, who God is, and the good He is up to in their lives. Only then will we become the men of influence we’ve been created to be.
We regularly hold training drills like:
- N4RM Battlefront Weekend
- Wild at Heart Basic Training Weekend
- N4RM Community Groups
- N4RM Band of Brothers Training Weekend
Learn more about Call To Arms.
PHASE FOUR: DEPLOYMENT
Released For Good
Deployment is the end-goal. At some point, we have to pull the trigger. We get together once a quarter as a wider regimen (all Bands of Brothers) to share stories, testimonies, best practices, and learn fight for the hearts of other men through Base Camps of your own or assisting in our ongoing adventures. This helps us regroup, refocus, and champion our Band of Brothers, warriors who are dangerous for good.
Learn more about Deployment.
PHASE FIVE: BIG GUNS
Released For Leadership
We’re always looking for a “few good men”. Big Guns are men who dig in, progress through the phases, and exhibit fruit that impacts others. Becoming a Big Gun involves a lot of one-on-one time with New 4RMations’ leadership, digging deeper into your story, finding even greater clarity, and setting you up for passionate engagement with a personalized plan of action, your “marching orders.” Among other things, this is where you might decide to lead your own Band of Brothers, take on a key role with the New 4RMations’ Leadership Team, or start your own ministry.

WHAT IF I STILL HAVE QUESTIONS?
Of course you still have questions. And, we have a few more answers on our FAQ page. But, we’ll be straight with you, just come hang out with us and get a feel for what we are all about. It’s easier that way.
