After moving to Vermont a few years ago I found there wasn't a weekly gathering of guys like I was used to meeting with in my previous community. So, after a good bit of prayer, I am exploring creating a safe place where guys of all ages, races, and backgrounds can gather weekly to talk about how to "do life" as a Christian man in today's world.

After leading and facilitating men's bootcamps, retreats and small groups - and pastoring for 25-years, I feel now is the time to begin that process here in Vermont.  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 the Bible, Eldredge and Ransomed Heart 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 hoping to begin meeting in the next couple of months. 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. Designed to promote discipleship, fellowship, worship, ministry and outreach, Wildmen provides a safe place where men can come and be men as they grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ. 

We have Wildmen Outposts in a few cities in the US. Outposts are independent sites that typically do not meet in a church, although they might. Outposts minister to men from multiple church congregations, or to men who presently do not attend a church congregation.

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.
