Primary Announcements

Book Club – Freed to Lead

Join your brothers on Thursday night @ 8pm on Zoom to keep discussing ‘Freed to Lead’ which is the story, told by F3’s co-founders, of how they unwittingly launched an international movement from a Charlotte, N.C., middle school on New Year’s Day 2011. Through anecdote, metaphor, and the occasional “Truth Nugget,” Dave “Dredd” Redding and Tim “OBT” Whitmire reveal how the Three Fs they stumbled on – Fitness, Fellowship, and Faith – cure the “Sad Clown Syndrome” that plagues so many men in our culture and offer a solution to our society’s male leadership vacuum.

Keep an eye on Slack to for meeting details and no need to actually read the book to be a part of the discussion.
