The New Frontier Ministries: Father son adventures exploring the heart of God through discovery of Identity, Mission, Code, and Community.

Father & Son Trips

We believe being in God’s beautiful wilderness is one of the best places to connect fathers and sons with Him! This is what Jesus modeled! Through adventures and solitude we provide an environment that pushes fathers and sons beyond their comfort level and capabilities, resulting in opportunity for growth. He withdrew into the wilderness to pray…Mark 1:35

Why Fathers and Sons?

God has given us a deep passion to equip fathers and sons through exploration of Biblical Identity, Mission, Code, and Community. Our aim is to guide men on the heroic journey of manhood, build the hearts of sons up, cultivating genuine intimacy with God which results in a lasting legacy that will impact generations to come. You shall teach them diligently to your children-Deut 6:6-9

Identity, Mission, Code, Community

As adopted sons of God our Identity is bestowed upon us by, and rooted in our Heavenly Father, a Mission crafted for us, and a Code through which all is manifested and solidified, all of which is lived out in the Community of believers. Only through grace and a receptive heart can we accept these gifts from our good Father. You are no longer a slave, but a son…Gal 4:6-7

Leaving A Legacy

Investing in your family\’s spiritual journey is the most important action you can take, period. There is nothing more valuable in which you could invest your time, money and energy. Imagine how meaningful these father son outdoor adventures are! The return on investing in building this solid foundation will be one that impacts generations to come! Your children shall be like olive shoots around your table…Psalm 128:3

FATHER/SON IDENTITY QUEST
STEVENSVILLE, MONTANA, UNITED STATES
JUNE 13, 2016 – JUNE 19, 2016
Join us for this father son retreat! We are taking groups of fathers and sons on the most profound adventure known to man…unplugging from the Matrix, connecting to our Father, and seeking answers to the deepest questions known to man: Does my life have meaning? Who am I? Isn’t there more to life?

This five day Quest will take place in the wild beauty of Montana! We will be staying in a beautiful lodge on a 12,000 acre ranch near Stevensville, Montana. While being immersed in God’s beautiful and peaceful creation fathers and sons will learn about their Identity in Christ, go on hikes, go white water rafting, enjoy community around camp fires, and participate in a work project on the ranch.

This initial trip is part of a longer Journey, which includes weekly Huddles (discipleship meetings), the potential for additional trips, and a band of brothers that fight along side one another. During the other trips fathers and sons will learn more about their identity in Christ, but will also discover their Mission, learn to live by God’s Code, and develop an authentic Community.

"I took my 3 teenage sons with me to a New Frontier event last summer. It has changed the lives of my sons and me. We experienced adventure, great teaching and terrific fellowship with other fathers and sons. But the most impact has been the common language and vision we brought home with us related to our identity, mission and code. I cannot give New Frontier a high enough recommendation."

− Scott Philips, Attorney, Cincinnati, Ohio

"There is nothing like the New Frontier that connects one-to-one discipleship with the passage from a boy to a man. It connects the hearts of fathers with their sons in a unique way that can only be forged in the mountains and in discipleship."

− Josh Lenon, Pastor Red Door Church

"What happens in Montana doesn't stay in Montana. The experiences with my sons had a large impact on them, their future, and me. And perhaps most importantly, that impact has stayed with us well-beyond Montana. Talking about the boys' future, processing the loss of my dad, and building even more relational intimacy with God and my sons, allowed us to grow AND have a blast...it was an important 'life experience.' The impact lasts, which is the main difference between The New Frontier and 'camps.'"

− Mark Stetcher, Campus Pastor Crossroads Church

"This past June my son and I were Blessed to participate in The New Frontier Ministries quest in Montana. Each day was well planned with Father and Son time together as well as Spiritual Renewal, Fulfillment, and Encouragement from the NFM team. I highly recommend this to all Fathers and Sons. Thanks NFM 5 Stars. "

− Michael Brill
IDENTITY

We have forgotten who we really are. Our original glory has been stolen from us, leaving us lost and confused. But here’s the good news: God is determined to rescue us! He wants to redeem what was lost, restore us back as sons of God, to what we were originally created to be, and solidify our Identity in Him.

MISSION

We have settled for something less. Perhaps disguised as a career, or the American Dream, we have sold ourselves short. Born of our Identity, God has crafted a unique purpose and Mission for our lives. He bestows upon us a Mission that is greater than ourselves, that is masterfully and skillfully molded, one that we are uniquely designed to carry out. We are ambassadors of the Kingdom.

CODE

Code is the way you live. It is comprised of our actions and motives, which must align with our Identity and Mission. It is being who you say you are, choosing character over convenience. It is the only means by which our Mission can be accomplished. The Code is not simply a promise card or Christian duty, it is about living out true biblical manhood. The Code is “walking in a manner worthy of the calling…” Ephesians 4:1

COMMUNITY

The importance of doing life together; “no man is an island.” We must live as a band of brothers! Jesus said “I in them and you in me. May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.” John 17:23 Jesus also declared “a house divided against itself cannot stand.” Mark 3:25
