This is a one year program designed for early-to-mid career men growing in their leadership and influence who are seeking greater faith-life integration, career and leadership excellence, and a pathway to biblical manhood.


The Way for Emerging Leaders

The methodology is based on Jeff’s 12 years of spiritual direction and life purpose coaching around the globe. The core models, principles and tools from Jeff’s book, The Joy Model (Click here to find out more) are foundations of the experience.

Each group is comprised of a maximum of 12 men to foster community and accountability. Using a creative combination of teaching, curated reading and videos, coaching, spiritual direction, outdoor adventure, and tried-and-true life purpose tools/strategies, Jeff will help you move from "smoldering discontent" to clarity and courage about the direction of your life.
