Central Oregon Maximize Manhood Regional event is coming Sept 18-19 at Christian Life Center. Gentle Lion will be the host sponsor, with Lamont Boileau (Executive Director) leading the charge! You will experience life-changing messages from Vance Day, President of Promise Keepers), Paul Cole (Pres. Christian Men’s Network), and Otto Kelly (College Hall of Famer from University of Reno NV, Executive Director of the Reno Crisis Pregnancy Center; Dad-E Academy, also played in the NFL with the Chief and Eagles).

Dear Gentle Lion Family,
We're sure you've been receiving many updates regarding cancellations of church, school and sporting events.
We have been praying and talking as a team to decide the best route to take with our weekly classes. For the safely, security and well-being of you, your family and our community we are cancelling classes for the next two weeks (until at least April 1st). This includes the current groups: Sunday's with Steve at 5 PM, Monday nights at Deer Ridge (due to a state-wide suspension of all volunteer and contractor visitations), the Tuesday Lunch Bunch at 12 PM and the Wednesday Breakfast Burrito at 6:30 AM.
In the mean time, Gentle Lion has taken precautions to thoroughly clean and disinfect our office headquarters and will be monitoring the status of the Coronavirus in our community. Please stay tuned for updates posted on www.GentleLion.org/events, on Gentle Lion Social Media (Facebook and Instagram) and via our text message platform (texts from 76959) for updates.
We know that great things are in store for our Gentle Lion community and hope that during this time each of you will take the opportunity to connect with your spouses, children, family and friends at an even deeper level.
Let’s do some heavy lifting on life’s journey, as we find that “best “ version of self, servant-leaders of our families and contributing members of our community!
The Gentle Lion Team
P.S. God-willing, we look forward to seeing you down at Gentle Lion in April!
