Having 4 sons of his own, Larry Dan has a passion for ministry to boys and a strong desire to partner with you for a successful event. He will work with the host in advance to focus the event according to age group of children/adults.
Imagine if this generation of boys said, "Enough!" Imagine if they decided to live courageous lives -- lives worthy to be followed. A life their friends, family, and one day their children would follow. Yet this generation of boys is faced with many decisions. They are confronted with a NOW generation. They get their music, videos, communication NOW. They also believe success is defined by fame and fortune. Imagine if they would focus on leaving a legacy not an inheritance. What would this world look like?
So as a father of four boys, Larry Dan realizes the importance of helping his sons make wise choices. It is his desire to partner with local churches to impact both fathers and sons to realize they are difference makers! This can be one night or a weekend experience for preteens only or with their dads. It is packed full of fun and interactive object lessons designed in a way that boys can learn how they can make a difference today!
Available for boys' events, father/son events and more. Call today to book him for your event.
