"I knew I wanted and need a deeper connection to Christ and solid Christian men. What I didn’t know was exactly how it would come together. I had been in a men’s group at a local church but, it was depth and rawness that I was searching for. Then came my introduction to some fellas I didn’t really know...a group that eventually became the Cross Heirs. My best buddy Clint had begun helping facilitate other men to come together in small groups. I was a little skeptical yet hopeful! June 15, 2012 was the day we as 7 individual men made a covenant to be 1 group committed to each other and, more importantly, to pursuing a stronger relationship with Jesus Christ. I am by nature a very open person (that may be an understatement). I remember Clint grinning and encouraging me to not “scare these guys”. As it turned out, we all opened up at different speeds like peeling back layers of an onion.
During these last 8 years, I have had some of the most difficult trials of my life including legal, financial, and employment crisis. When I was on my knees crying out to the Lord and felt like I had nowhere to turn, I was engulfed by love and support by not only “my guys” in the Cross Heirs but, also others in our extended FinD brotherhood. The strength of the Lord that is magnified by unity of believers is what it’s all about for us! I truly could not have weathered the storms of this life without the support and relationship that my small group of brothers have shared with me. It is a critical aspect of my life. In 2020, I moved from the convenient proximity of living “in the ‘hood” to being right on the coast, but I still look forward to being together every Thursday morning and I don't think twice about the 45 mile drive it takes to get there!"
