Want to Be a Better Dad? Announcing the 2019 Spring Sessions for Strategic Dads

Starting January 29th, take one hour a month to learn how to be a better dad.

Throughout this spring semester, PDS will be hosting Strategic Dad sessions on the last Tuesday of each month. All you need to do is pick between the 6:45 breakfast session or the 11:45 lunch session, and we’ll provide the teaching and the food.

Here are our topics for the next four months:

  • Developing Your “Why” As a Dad - Tuesday January 29th
  • The Solution to The Biggest Problems Dads Face - Tuesday February 26th
  • Technology & Your Kids - Tuesday March 26th • For all parents
  • Training World Changers - Wednesday April 24th

The sessions will led by Howard Graham, along with guest speakers for some sessions. Each session will explore aspects of manhood and fatherhood and provide practical tools or next steps to make a difference for your family.

Who should attend? All PDS dads who want to better serve their family, as well as all men who serve a significant role in the life of a PDS boy. If there are friends that you discuss parenting with or that could benefit from these sessions, you are welcome to invite them too.

Building Boys, Making Men is a PDS-created program designed to give boys a godly vision and definition of manhood. We believe that boys should be intentionally taught about authentic manhood and have a biblical framework for making wise and edifying choices during their teenage years and beyond. The definition of manhood we teach our boys:

A real man glorifies God by seeking an adventurous life of purpose and passion as he protects and serves others.
