Gentle Lion leaders participated in today's Central Oregon Prayer Breakfast, where we had a full table, our own Jacob plugged Gentle Lion from the stage as a local ministry addressing the fatherhood crisis in our country, and we spread the word about the Gentle Lion programs through new print materials at each table and at our booth. Things are moving fast, doors are opening, the message is getting out!
Thanks to Brad from Crystal Peaks, we met with Darlene. She is an advocate for what Gentle Lion is all about, and sees the need for both the men and women in active duty and veterans. Because of our time together, meeting together at this beautiful ranch, we hope that many will learn about and connect with the resources that Gentle Lion can offer. Very thankful for this meeting! Will keep you posted as we have more opportunities to reach out to the Veterans in our community.
On Tuesday night March 13th, we had our first Gentle Lioness meeting with our team. Plans are now underway for a May 1 launch date with the women of Gentle Lion. Our goal is to start a 6:30 pm class to equip, encourage and inspire ladies in our community who are looking for a group where they can grow and learn more about how to become better wives, mothers and individuals.
We've had several good meetings with pastors and leaders from Bend and Central Oregon.
Anger and Stress Management Group: This is one of the most power-packed groups that you can join. Lamont breaks down mature coping skills and gives so many practical pointer each time we meet that you won't walk away disappointed. Here are some pictures from our first class.
Great group of 13 guys as a starting point. We are going through Max Lucado's Anxious for Nothing study together. It's only growing from here and more have started coming. Join in for breakfast burritos and fellowship on Tuesday's at 6:30 am.
Great time talking with the Veteran's about their needs and how we can be a support to them as a ministry.
On February 15th Gentle Lion opened it's doors for the first time to some 35 people. Our founder Lamont shared the vision and heart of Gentle Lion. It was a great way to connect with friends and start the journey together. Here are a few pictures of the evening.
