The Right Stuff
There comes a time in life when all men seek, knock and ask those critical questions that nag at their very souls. For some it happens early, for others it may be later in life but they all ask: "Why am I here?" "Will I come through?" "Can I overcome?" The resounding answer is no. The enemy teaches them even as little lads that you will fail and you are a failure. At NEW 4RMATIONS, Tim McNamara and Charlie Vensel are the real deal. They have wrestled with these questions and they have found victory. They are daily walking headlong into the adventure that is life with Christ. They have taken that adventure into a more aggressive journey as of late with the formation of NEW 4RMATIONS. I know their impact of the Kingdom of God, particularly in the Upstate of South Carolina, is going to be measured in generations. I am proud to call them by friends! The have the right stuff! Jesus! Deploy into one of their missions, adventures, events, boot camps and bring lots of guys. I promise you will never be the same! I am not the same because of their love and friendship!
The Pursuit of the Heart of Man
New 4RMations offers an inviting, non-judgmental, and comfortable experience for Christian men who are looking to discover themselves and what makes them come alive. This organization does a phenomenal job of creating an environment where the "religious" aspects of Christianity are shed, meaning that it welcomes men as they are; no traditional-church attitude involved. It seeks to engage the real person, not the "good Christian guy;" the outdoor-cigar-smoking-fishing-racing-intellectual-emotional-artistic-hiking-humble man. The casual adventures are a great place for community and establishing long lasting friendships as well as engaging the God-given purpose and desires of men's hearts. These adventures typically involve a testimony/teaching that is extremely applicable to life. The crucial and critical adventures offer deeper community and relationship with others as well as God. These are especially potentially life-changing. I went on a casual adventure with a group of guys to the Tuckasegee river in NC. I met new friends with many of the same struggles. We were able to shed the "poser" for a few days and be truly authentic with each other. The experience allowed me to "unplug" from my daily routine and environment so that I could relax and get new perspective. The 3 short teachings (1 each day about 30 minutes each) based on John Eldredge's books offered tons of great lessons and perspectives. Most of all the experience was simply enjoyable. I had a great time fishing, learning, and talking to others. The food was fantastic too. I highly recommend a casual adventure. New 4RMations deserves a 5/5 for its efforts, teachings, adventures, and offering a place for men to be men the way God intended them to be. Subscribe to them and go on an adventure! You will not regret it!
Filling a void
New 4RMations is still a young ministry but Charlie and Tim have already had a big impact on my life. I have joined in with many men through New 4RM that are walking the same journey I am on - seeking and finding God in the good and the bad times in this life. With New 4RM, you can be yourself and be redeemed in the process. Thanks Charlie and Tim for following God's call and filling a void in the Upstate of SC with New 4RM.
