Teaching, Inspiring & Challenging Men
Teaching Men to see the Unseen
Captain Dan has spent his life chasing fish across open water and wrestling with the roles of being a husband, father, friend and worker. We offer fishing seminars and schools for all levels of anglers and faith based talks for churches and men's groups.
Wild Game Dinners
Captain Dan mixes fishing stories of great catches, storms and experiences from 36 years as a professional fisherman with the greatest story ever told, the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Get out of the Boat!
Jesus called Peter to put his fear aside and to trust Him when he called him to walk on the water. Peter stepped out of the boat but was distracted by the wind and waves! Does Jesus still call men to walk on water? Having spent his life working on big waves, Dan brings a unique perspective to this story as he guides men to look beyond the wind and waves. The distractions the average man faces today can be overwhelming. This powerful story sheds light into our own souls as we learn to what it means to follow Jesus.
Multi-day Men's Retreat
When you take a man and place him in nature and remove the demands of daily life you can take his soul to a deeper place. Help to refuel your men and re-calibrate their internal compass through time away and encouraging lessons designed to equip and strengthen a man's soul. Many churches find that a two or three day retreat is a great way to deepen community and strengthen a man's heart for the daily battles we all face.
A one day on site retreat is a great way to take your men out of the rat-race for a moment, and to re-calibrate their internal compass. Dan will work with you to design a custom message to help you encourage and equip the men of your church where they are at today.
Really, Lord? You want ME to Follow?
Jesus chose a handful of fishermen to be his first followers. Captain Dan has made a living for 36 years in an unpredictable and risky occupation—fishing. He brings powerful insights into what it means to follow Jesus, on our best days as well as our worst days. Through stories of his experiences fishing in primitive locations around the world to dealing with the adversity and unpredictability of the fishing industry, to his failures at home and on the water, he speaks into the hearts of men. Just like the first disciples, men today have hidden dreams, passions and scars. Through the experiences of the first disciples, we can learn what it means to follow Jesus at home, work and play, even when it feels like swimming upstream.
