We are a community of East Texans that are committed to helping others find freedom in Jesus Christ. We enjoy helping people cut through the clutter of Christianity in order to discover the power and simplicity of trusting God and loving others. We offer weekend God Encounters for men, women, and marriages. These experiential trainings are highly relational and are focused on the issues of the heart. Our simple goal is to help people connect intimately with God and others. This always leads to life-giving transformation.
Our trainings work closely with various local churches and pastors. We believe passionately in the local church. It is our strong desire that the changed lives from our weekend trainings will empower the relationships in these local fellowships.
We find great joy in training others in this great work of making disciples relationally, one person at a time. If there is any way we can serve you, your small group, or your church, please let us know. If you would like to participate in one of our upcoming trainings, we would be excited to have you. Thanks!

I was isolated to the things that God had for me. I was unclear to who I am in Jesus. I found that God had a plan for me and I could be the man He created me to be without apology. I found a group of men that are just like me. Broken and needy, just like me they all struggle with some sin and through the brotherhood we can support each other when we fall and remind each other that God loves and cares for us no matter what. God bless men's bootcamp.age 59, Lindale
I grew up in church. I thought I knew what it meant to be a christian. During high school, college, and my first marriage, I strayed far from God. My first marriage resulted in an emotional roller coaster and eventual divorce. After going through boot camp, I've recognized my weakness face to face. I've kicked my sin to the curb. I realized I have a freedom that only God can give. In that freedom I will always choose Jesus.age 37, Dallas
This has been a radical experience and a reminder of the man God has called me and empowered me to be. I am free to be myself. I am not defined by what I do, but by who I am.age 23, Tyler
The East Texas Brotherhood saved my life. In 2011 my wife told me that our marriage was officially over. I was slam dunked into pain that I never knew existed. My boot camp brothers ran to my rescue. Every day, for many months they bombarded me with phone calls, texts, and pure love. They sat with me for hours on end and listened to my confusion, pain, rage, and sadness. They didn’t flinch when I gave up on my call with God. They invited me to sleep over at their house when loneliness was overwhelming. Whenever the enemy told me that I was pathetic wimp of a man, a brother would call and tell me how powerful I really am. Without the affirmation of my brothers, today I would be a drunken agnostic. Through the most horrific season of my life, I was not alone.age 48, Lindale
