“Fellowship in Discipleship (“FinD”) is the best men’s discipleship small group ministry that I have ever been involved with. I have observed how FinD is a vehicle to truly transform the lives of men, and as a result the lives of all the people with whom they relate, including family, friends, workplace colleagues and others they interact with.
There are many factors that contribute to FinD’s success, including the patient and deliberative way that each small group is formed, and how FinD provides a safe place for men from all walks of life who are committed to sharing with, learning from and encouraging each other. The spiritual growth that results is remarkable and best demonstrated by the moving testimonies from so many of the men as to how their lives have been transformed. FinD also provides a vehicle for the men in the various small groups to gather for services projects, retreats and community with each other, which provides a sense of belonging to something bigger than themselves. In addition, FinD benefits from the guidance of a small, engaged Board of Directors, made up of representatives from the small groups and independent Board members.
However, the most significant factor contributing to FinD’s success is the Holy Spirit-inspired leadership by FinD’s Founder and President, Clint Harrington. As a result, FinD is truly a ministry that is inspired and directed by God.
It is an honor and a privilege for me to be involved in such an outstanding ministry!”
