The fatherhood crisis is not just an American problem, it's a global issue. Right now the world needs stronger fathers. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, approximately 24 million children in the United States, or one in three, live without a father in the home.
Of these children, more than half live in poverty and grow up with behavioral and emotional problems, poor educational outcomes, and involvement in the criminal justice system.
"I am the true grapevine, and my Father is the gardener. Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me.”
John 15:1, 4 NLT
As the Founder of Fruitful Father Ministries, I have a heart for fathers and families because of the pain I had to grow through without my father or family in my life.
I grew up most of my life not knowing who I was and where I belonged. Despite my early success in business, I still felt like there was something missing. I was an Orphan Spirit who was successful but searching for something more.
“But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:”
John 15:26, KJV
I realized that although I became the father I never had and built the family I always wanted, I never overcame my need for a father in my life.
At 33, I had an encounter with Christ that transformed my life and led me to the Heavenly Father I didn't know I needed.
That's when Our Heavenly Father supernaturally led me to mentors and father-figures to equip and empower me to lead fathers and heal families at a time like this.
“You didn't choose me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using my name.”
John 15:16, NLT
This is why the Fruitful Father Ministries exist today. Our goal is to empower 100,000 fathers to build strong families by 2030. We'll accomplish this by inspiring leaders like you to experience the Father's Love through His Voice.
