We have created a safe place where guys of all ages, races, and backgrounds can gather monthly to talk about how to "do life" as a Christian man in today's world. Our goal is to assist in the recovery of the masculine heart and to gain an understanding of the true LIFE and FREEDOM that is available to us.

After leading and facilitating men's Wild at Heart Basic Bootcamps, Wild at Heart Advanced Camps, Becoming Good Soil (Ransomed Heart) Intensives, men's retreats and small groups, we understand a bit about ministering to the masculine heart of a man. This gathering is not intended to be a substitute for "church", but rather a time of refreshment, learning & growing, talking about real stuff in our lives, and using materials from Scripture, Eldredge, Snyder, Ransomed Heart, and others, to better understand our role in today's world.

We are looking for a few men who are up for something different, who are tired of just getting by spiritually, relationally, emotionally and physically.  We are looking for men who want something more...

So, are you up for some exploration? Interested in meeting with other guys and seeing where God takes it?  I am.  

We are meeting in the greater Burlington, VT area at 10:00 AM the first Saturday of every month. Email or call using the link below for specific locations.  Come join us...

Here is a bit about who we are:

"The Wildmen are a group of guys that started out in 2002 with 8 men who got together to attend a “40 Days of Purpose” small group. Wildmen provides a safe place where men can come, and be men, as they grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ. We have been Allies with Wild at Heart / Ransomed Heart since 2003 and have seen hundreds of men's hearts, and lives, transformed by the power of God.

Contact me for more information.

Best,

Scott

I have been involved with both in-person and virtual groups that Wildmen Vermont, and Scott Ptak have facilitated. This group is the real deal. They gently and lovingly lead men towards the restoration of their hearts. Using God's Word, and the teaching material from Ransomed Heart, Scott shows that he is a gifted teacher/speaker/facilitator who is anointed by God to share this incredible message of life and freedom. If you have the opportunity to engage with this group of men, please do it - your life will be the richer for it.

The real deal ! Thank You Scott for providing an excellent online Boot Camp. I wish I could have attended the Catalina Intensive you and the Wildmen did but I hope you do it again! I know someone who went . The online Boot Camp encouraged me and moved me forward. Looking forward to more but how about on the East coast? An excellent ministry!

I've known Scott P for quite a few years. He's the real-deal. This man can hang with the toughest of them, but also has dealt with more pain and sorrow than many will ever see. His heart is to see you come fully alive as a man so that you can live situationally aware as a follower of Christ. If you have the chance and, are in the area, check out this group. I suspect that, like me, you'll be glad that you did. Wildmen is Christianity without the BS.

When I started with Wildman, well let's just say I was just discovering that it wasn't necessarily all about me. And there was also a inner fear of going forward, insecurity was running amuck. These "men", this band of brothers, helped me pullout and pull up, and learned just who was really in charge, of the things I could not control. But God!, put these men, this band, in my life and together showed me more about Christ and freedom in him! Now, I will still profess that without them I would not have been here, leading and facilitating different Men's Ministry groups. Since I started, this group has expanded, not just to other churches, but other cities, states, and yes even countries. Don't believe it? Let Scott, and Wildman, show you, through Christ!

This Wild at Heart message contains such freedom! I am one of this Band of Brothers, and taking this journey with other men is so very important. I find that living in “The Larger Story” has called me up out of myself to fight for my wife, my children and just stay in this tough fight to love God and resist evil. I understand and embrace my good, masculine character that God formed within me. I am called to engage into this world at war… but in a way that is not selfish (as in its all about me) but with a strength that is needed, a warrior spirit (put in my heart by God), and compassion for others. Somehow I have learned to love more and fear less, as a natural default way of thinking. This was a transforming message for me, restoring my relationships with my wife, my children and, most of all, myself. I believe it will be for you as well. (For an understanding of the “Larger Story” read Epic (by John Eldredge) which is lesson one of the Boot Camp Experience) (Then, of course, read Wild at Heart) Take this journey - freedom awaits!

As a member of the Leadership Team of Wildmen Ministry in Florida, you could not find a more driven ministry for men then this. Scott is one of the founding members of Wildmen Ministry that has brought more power to men through our Bootcamps, Seminars, Trainings and Groups. Contact Scott today and find out why Wildmen are a Band of Brothers. We don't just believe in Proverbs 27:17 or our creed Wildmen, A Band Of Brothers, Honor One Another, Above Self. You will not be disappointed in joining a group of Men that have fight the fight and continue to grow as Men of God, Better Husbands, Better Fathers and Better Leaders.
