What does G-5 stand for?

G-5 refers to Galatians 5:22-23, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.” As men who profess faith in Christ, we eagerly desire that this fruit of the Spirit will be increasingly present in every aspect of our lives, especially in our relationships with those we love the most.

What will be covered in the class?

The classes will cover ten themes and will include group dialogue and exercises, video vignettes, role plays, and follow up assignments. The themes we will cover are nonviolence, non-threatening behavior, respect, trust and support, honest and accountability, responsible parenting, shared responsibility, economic partnership, sexual respect, and negotiation and fairness. Throughout the course, participants will be guided to consider their behaviors, motives, and beliefs in relation to these themes and what the Scripture teaches about the fruit which the Spirit produces in us (Galatians 5:22-23)

Update 9/7/21: Our program is currently full.  We are working on the waitlist that had accumulated by July 1st.  Our waitlist was so full we could not in good faith accept more waitlist candidates at this time.  Please keep checking back as we are working towards being able to serve a higher capacity of men.  Once we have made those new adjustments, we will re-open our waitlist.
