Making the Most of FSQ: Preparation Steps

To help you prepare and make this most of this weekend we provide the following:

Fathers Only Pre-Trip Briefing

Required for all fathers who will attend FSQ. We review all the travel and accommodations details with you at this meeting. We pray together. We review the curriculum together so you can prepare with your wife to address the three components of the weekend, which include:

[1] Communicating a personalized Blessing and Affirmation to your son,
[2] Developing and presenting a clear Biblical Vision of Manhood to your son, and
[3] Cultivating and explaining Key Qualities of Godly Men found in the Scriptures

What other Father's have experienced

"The whole weekend is crafted so well. I can't think of a better way to focus time on dad & son, and set a milestone of passage in the quest for godly manhood."


"It was a great way to honor my son. I wanted to show him how much I love and value him beyond his sports, school, etc. placing the true emphasis on his spiritual future and Christian beliefs."


"I loved the one-on-one time with my son. The time as father/son with a wonderful group of dads was an inspiration. When my son can listen and learn from other fathers -- not only listen but see the vision for manhood played out -- it is awesome!"
