Episode 052: Jeff Henderson on Helping Dads Invest in Their Sons


In this episode, I talk with Jeff Henderson of Gwinnett Church. Jeff and I talk about Champion Tribes–something new he’s launching to help busy dads connect with their sons in unique and life-changing ways. If you lead in ministry, it’s an awesome way to partner with parents and help families in your community  win. And, if you’re a parent, it’s a phenomenal resource that helps you journey with other parents and students who are walking through the same critical phase.
