Men are tired of the hectic pace the world throws at them. The perspective that Sunday provides is a welcome relief. But inevitably by mid-Monday, back in full business mode, the simplicity and clarity we experienced get crowded out by “our” plans for work and home. We sense something is out of balance. We would like nothing more than to integrate the whole of life and our walk with Jesus. But how?
The good news is that there is a tried and true answer:
“As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.” -Proverbs 27:17
Taking this verse as our cue…
Would you like to exchange practical insights with like-minded businessmen who love Jesus?
Do you hear God prompting you to live out your faith in every part of your life?
Do you feel a hunger to retreat from a hectic world and find restoration among a fellowship of brothers in Christ?
If so, come deepen your faith and sharpen your business acumen at our monthly E2F Group.
What is the E2F Group?
E2F Group is a discipleship gathering that is specifically designed for C-level executives and business owners who love Jesus and desire to “be the church” in all they do. Every month a talented combination of seasoned professionals and entrepreneurs meet together to fellowship and learn creative solutions for real life—all through the prism of our faith.
When are the meetings?
For your convenience, there are two group options from which you can choose:
Option A: We meet on the first and third Thursday of every month from 11 a.m.- 2:00 p.m.
Option B: We meet on the fourth Thursday of every month from 8:00 a.m.- 2:30 p.m. (breakfast and lunch included).
Some may wonder, “How can I afford to take the time off from my busy schedule?” After the first few meetings, we’re certain many will say, “How can I afford not to?”
Where are the meetings held?
New groups are currently being formed near the Westchase area of Tampa, Florida. This convenient location is within twenty minutes of many of the bedroom communities north and west of Tampa, including Safety Harbor, Palm Harbor, Clearwater, Odessa, Lutz, Cheval, Oldsmar, East Lake, Keystone, and Trinity.
What should I bring?
A desire to be encouraged and to encourage others. We will provide you with comfortable surroundings, smiling faces, and our snapshot tool—a simple, one-page sheet that you fill out and bring to each meeting. This snapshot will simplify the discipleship process and help guide you to greater heights of spiritual maturity, life management, and business success.
More than just businessmen, we are faith-motivated brothers. As such, we gather in a relaxed setting, in a spirit of friendship, and always with God as our guide.
Every meeting begins with an inspirational icebreaker from one of our own or from an outside speaker. These brief talks center on a key biblical principle that can be directly applied to business. It is a great way to start the day!—with a solid nugget of wisdom we can instantly utilize in our lives.
We spend the balance of our time in our breakout group (6-7 per group), where each man, in turn, has the opportunity to discuss the four key areas of their snapshot—Faith, Family, Work, and Life Balance. As you share the specific high points or challenges you are experiencing, the rest of the group listens, then offers practical steps and relevant solutions. More importantly, we always end by praying for God’s guidance and protection for you.
The net result: You benefit greatly from the combined wisdom and experience of a like-minded band of brothers. And together, we become what God calls us to be—men growing in faith and learning to walk it out in a way that inspires others to want more of Jesus in their own lives.
How much does it cost?
The contribution is $250 per month and includes ongoing follow-through, accountability, and encouragement. In order to build on the synergies of the group, we ask that you make a 12-month commitment.
Note: Your contributions are tax deductible. Encourage to Faith Ministries, Inc. is a 501(c )(3) non-profit organization supported entirely by contributions from people who believe in our message and work. No goods or services are provided in exchange for these contributions.
