What is Unravel? A Community Excited About Men’s Personal Growth
Unravel is for men who take their future seriously and want to make huge strides spiritually, relationally, professionally.
The goal is to explore significant growth through significant effort – pursuing excellence through robust preparation and participation. Unlike other men’s groups, it is not a Bible study or a hangout.
Our materials draw from a number of Christian and secular teachers, scholars, and leaders. Through the process, participants strive to articulate their unique vision and a practical framework for moving that vision forward.
Unravel operates to equip men for a better future in community with other motivated men.
Each Unravel experience invites men to learn, question, and reflect on what they need to realize a better future.
Our participants emerge with a vision for their lives and a compass for meeting the demands of their reality.
Our leaders are passionate about men’s personal development – encouraging each participant to articulate their unique strengths, address their weaknesses, and adopt a posture of life-long growth.
The invitation for men who experience Unravel is to live passionate lives of faith, experience profound relationships, work with purpose, and lead with courage. To be men who pursue progress, not perfection.
I Unravel I: Equip
Unravel I invites men who are hungry to grow as a Christian, leader, husband, father, employee, and friend. Through a series of readings, assignments, and time together, men build greater awareness of their strengths, weaknesses, and calling. For those seeking motivation, clarity, and practical tools for leading a life on purpose, Unravel I is the place to start.
Unravel I is a twelve month commitment, with groups meeting once per month for three hours, as well as one weekend retreat. It is open to all men.
II Unravel II: Lead
Unravel II challenges men to grow in their leadership. The format is the same as Unravel I, but expectations are raised. Men will come prepared each month to discuss various assignments, and how they are pursuing excellence, integrity, and their life mission. Those who desire greater growth, wish to expand their influence, and are energized by the Unravel process are strongly encouraged to participate.
Unravel II is a six month commitment, with groups meeting once per month for three hours. It is open to all men who have completed Unravel I.
III Unravel III: Renew
Unravel III provides space for men seeking to renew their minds to better meet the demands of their reality. Unlike Unravel I and II, there is no book to read or scripture to memorize. Men come prepared to have frank, open discussions of topics important to them and the world. This is a forum to speak freely and unedited – men supporting each other, asking questions, and working through ideas with bravery, sincere curiosity, and grace.
Unravel III groups meet once per month for three hours. It is open to all men who have completed Unravel I and Unravel II.
Unravel: GO is a six-week commitment, with men completing the training on their own time. It is open to all men.
