Speaking – Training – Coaching – Mentoring
When we look at the current health of The Church across the entire spectrum, two ministry areas that consistently struggle are Men’s Ministry and Parenting Ministry.
Many churches have thriving women’s ministries, power worship experiences and world-class children’s and youth curriculum yet no biblical road-map or turn-key game plan for men and parents.
- Church ministries will average only 40 hours per year to influence the lives of children, youth and teens while parents will average over 3000 hours.
- 93% of families will follow when the father takes an active role in his faith and walk with Christ. When fathers are not active in their faith, 60% of children stop attending church or leave the faith altogether even if their mother still attends regularly.
Legacy Dad is a ministry founded in 2005 that empowers parents and men to raise spiritual champions from the viewpoint of manhood and fatherhood. Legacy Dad connects the church and home by effectively synchronizing the churches efforts with what is happening in the home through a common biblical road map and strategic philosophy. Legacy Dad accomplishes God’s work through our website, social media as well as conferences, small groups and keynotes.
Legacy Dad provides tailored keynotes, training and parenting conferences that empower men and parents to forge powerful, Christ-centered strategies to take your men’s or parenting ministry from wherever it is, to the next step in spiritual maturity and biblical discipleship. If you currently have no men’s or parenting ministry, Legacy Dad provides a turn-key strategic vision, teaching and curriculum to jump-start your ministries and lay the foundation for enduring success and continuity.
Legacy Dad works with church leaders and pastors to accurately assess the current health of your parenting and men’s ministry to identify strategic teachings, and strategies to incorporate into your church vision and growth plan as well as turn-key biblical road-maps to enhance these strategies.
From Bible teaching to Bible engagement – Legacy Dad focuses on not just getting people into the Bible and greater spiritual head knowledge—which churches do quite well—but equipping followers to engage the Bible and live the truths in their daily lives, outside the church.
Focused Direction and Actions – we provide a high-impact, strategic game plan of focused first steps—this pathway is specifically tailored to ignite your ministry experience and move people effectively towards a Christ-centered life while providing accountability along the way.
Stop The Do’s and Don’ts and Start Becoming –Many churches promote a list of things to do: attend weekly service, join a small group (with weekly homework), serve each month, invite friends, attend outreach events, and serve in the community. However, when we incessantly promote all the things people should do, we sometimes lose sight of who people should become. Spiritual growth is not driven or determined by attending an assortment of ministry activities; it is defined by a growing relationship with Christ and trust in God.
Legacy Dad’s effective keynotes and strategies are presented using real stories and testimonies from the authentic view of men and fathers who are struggling in the trenches daily but striving to be Godly men, fathers and husbands through the power of the holy spirit and a relationship with Christ.
Key Focus Areas:
Who is currently your best right hand man in ministry? What if you could multiple him and have 20 men like him in the next 2 years? What would this do to your workload, ministries and church? What if those 20 also mentored and disciplined 10 more each? Where would your church be 5 years from now?
Marriage – Spiritual Leader of the Family, Purity, Reigniting the Passion, Dealing With Adversity, Effective Communication, Your Spouses Love Language and becoming the husband and father God wants you to be.
We focus on marriage as the foundation of the family. Legacy Dad uses real life testimony to illustrate to men that they need to shift from Neutral to Drive, with the help of the holy spirit, to become a biblical leader for their spouse, home and family.
Parenting – Meeting your child’s three driving inner needs, the four freedoms that prevent rebellion and resentment, focusing on proactive character development versus reactive behavior modification, how to bring out the best in your strong-willed child and practical ways to take the fear out and put the fun back into parenting.
Legacy Dad works with churches and parents to improve their current parenting ministry efforts by educating parents on effective parenting strategies while giving parents a biblical road map to follow from birth to college. These strategies provide parents with a fresh, grace-based, Biblical and character-driven model to nurture confident and cooperative kids all while having a great time in the process. This philosophy is proven to strengthen families and shows parents (based on years of research) what actually works and what doesn’t to raise children who ultimately give their hearts to Christ and continue their faith after high school.

Quick Note: Our Writings
We are family men with full time jobs, coaching sports, teach classes, and spending time in odd corners of the world frequently. In short, we are hurried when we write. We don’t have an editor or copywriter nor do we have degrees in Communications or English. That being said you can expect misspellings, improper grammar, and words have been known to completely disappear while we type.
Read First- Many of the posts were written in the early years (2005-2006) of Legacy Dad and now serve as a historical marker of how far we have come. These posts are still in there raw, unedited form to illustrate our sometimes changing and consistent thoughts and views on parenting and manhood over the past 7 years.
