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.

F3 Atlantic City’s First Anniversary

The theme of the workout was mental health and suicide prevention. The leaders shared words about suicide prevention at each station. Talked about the need to support each other, and how F3 is important in doing that for the lives of all men present.
