New 4RMations (New Formations) is a non-denominational discipleship ministry equipping men to live full, adventurous lives in Jesus through the 4Rs of Relationship, Rescue, Restoration and Release, so they may become the men of influence God created them to be, and lead others to do and be the same. We offer a variety of entry points into the 4Rs:
BASE CAMP GATHERINGS & ADVENTURES 4RMEN (Relationship)
Feeling like a cog in the machine? Are you ready to be called up into something bigger than yourself, a larger story, a battle to fight and an adventure to live? Need a little fun and a little direction? Join us at Base Camp for casual gatherings and adventures. These are genuine opportunities to connect with men just like you around the kind of things guys love. Base Camp is filled with laughter, good food, encouragement, and a theme on living the masculine journey. We regularly gather for things like: Bonfires & Meet Ups Movie & Card Nights Oyster Roasts & BBQs Fishing & Hiking Adventures
BAND OF BROTHERS COMMUNITY 4RMEN (Rescue)
Tired of doing life alone? Feel like you’re taking all the heavy fire? We all need allies to help us fight the battles we face. We encourage our men to band together with 2-3 others on the journey to fight for each other’s hearts, to have each other’s backs. A Band of Brothers is a community where wisdom and encouragement lead men toward wholeness and action. The goal is to become free and settled men with nothing to hide, nothing to prove, and nothing to fear. So, come on. Join us. We will gladly connect you with an existing Band of Brothers.
CALL TO ARMS (Restoration)
Call To Arms is for those ready to go deeper into discovering and owning their unique and crucial role in the Larger Story, eager to take back Enemy territory, and ready to live life to the full. The goal is to become well-oriented men…men who know who they are, who God is, and the good He is up to in their lives. Only then will we become the men of influence we’ve been created to be. We regularly hold training drills like: N4RM Battlefront Weekend Wild at Heart Basic Training Weekend N4RM Community Groups N4RM Band of Brothers Training Weekend
Deployment is the end-goal. At some point, we have to pull the trigger. We get together once a quarter as a wider regimen (all Bands of Brothers) to share stories, testimonies, best practices, and learn fight for the hearts of other men through Base Camps of your own or assisting in our ongoing adventures. This helps us regroup, refocus, and champion our Band of Brothers, warriors who are dangerous for good.
We offer other services too:
SPIRITUAL DIRECTION 4RMEN & 4RWOMEN
Wondering, “Where am I?” and “Where’s God taking me?” Spiritual Direction seeks to answer those questions, helping you discover and respond to God’s presence and activity in your life. Spiritual Direction seeks to shift the focus away from the external demands of our lives to places of inner renewal, to recover a sense of “being” in the midst of “doing.”
CHRISTIAN COACHING 4RMEN & 4RWOMEN
Got a good idea of what God might be calling you into next, but not sure where to start? Consider Coaching. If Spiritual Direction seeks to answer, “Where’s God taking me?”, Coaching attempts to answer, “What am I going to do about it?” Coaching is a collaborative process that helps clients gain clarity through self-awareness, brainstorming, strategy, and accountability towards a plan of action.

COACHING 4RMINISTRY LEADERS
Ministry is one of the most rewarding, yet most challenging jobs on the planet. As a leader, it is your job to keep yourself leading from a position of health and spiritual authority, rather than out of positional authority, or worse, dysfunction. New 4RMations assists pastors and ministry leaders in discovering avenues of personal renewal and leadership development amid the demands of serving others.
RELATIONSHIP ENRICHMENT 4RCOUPLES
The Trinity exists in perfect relationship, and as a Christ follower, the same energy and passion with which the Trinity relates is in you. Christian maturity transforms all of our relationships, especially with our significant others. Of course, we live in a world at war and quality relationship does not come easily; it must be fought for. New 4RMations is honored to come alongside couples to join in the adventure of relationship enrichment using Prepare/Enrich®, the nation’s leading relationships inventory and skill-building program.
WEDDINGS & PREMARITAL COUNSELING
New 4RMations loves to walk couples through sound premarital counseling using Prepare/Enrich®. We are honored to officiate the wedding ceremonies of those who come through premarital counseling with us.
