Alan is by all accounts a great guy. When you meet Alan you will see what everyone who knows him sees, a really nice fella. He is not without his faults, he will tell you, but a man with many hats and duties. He takes his family to church, he provides for them with a good job, he loves his wife and has just had a new baby to add to his young family. He is living the dream, the American Dream. But as is often the case, there is more to his story. It is a warrior’s story.
Alan knows that with all things he does there is something missing, there is a desire in his heart to lead other men. Alan wants to be a warrior. While working, he listens to podcasts of his favorite authors and desires to lead other men like they are encouraging him to do. He is stirred to the point of action. He takes a step of faith.
Alan takes a risk; he goes on an adventure. He steps out, and while it costs him some time away from his family, he feels inspired to follow after God. While away, he hears God speaking to him and calling him to make a commitment and pursue his desire.
Alan comes away from a Wild at Heart Boot Camp and seeks after his desire with the help of New 4RMations. He starts out as a volunteer at one of the bonfire events New 4RMations has near his home. He does it again, and enjoys the camaraderie he finds among the men there. He invites others; it feels good. Alan goes to a training event, Leading a Band of Brothers, led by Charlie and Tim at New 4RMations. He starts to prepare to lead men at his church.
Charlie invites Alan to speak at the next bonfire! He is inspired! Some of his family come and hear him as he speaks from his heart about his life and the journey God is taking him on. Alan does an incredible job!
Now, Alan responds to God’s call to lead others. He steps out, and although he has tried before, he forms a Band of Brothers with the things he has learned from New 4RMations and his adventure continues…
Alan is now a Warrior. He fights for his family, he battles all the things men his age battle, bills, hassles at work etc. But now Alan has stepped into his desire; he has been given the tools to lead other men on a similar journey. He is able to step out and follow where God leads him and lead other warriors into battle.
