Matt I hope that happens and happy for you and your family.   It would be a great thing to have a mentor.

To have a male mentor me has been something I have been pining for as long as I can remember. It would be a privilege to become acquainted with someone soon :) I'm 33 married with a beautiful young daughter

For anybody looking to become a mentor in their area, I would recommend looking at your local behavioral health centers / agencies. They usually operate on the county level and should be relatively easy to find via a google search.

Hey gents - fairly new to AOM, myself. Checking in here as a mentor; 38, married with 2 daughters and have a two good ears and a few experiences under my belt. Looking forward to helping others and not too proud to reach out for help from time to time. Best to you guys.

I would very much like to offer myself as a mentor.  I have checked the links provided and don't see anything for the state of Oklahoma.  Any suggestions on how I might get involved with this worthy program?

Man, I have been neglecting the AOM community way too much lately. So I'll throw something out there. I started a blog for my ministry: http://breachrepairer.blogspot.com. I am also putting together a weekly class for young men (see my AOM blog).

Hey "thehuhman"; sorry it took me so long to see your post. I did the first camp in May 2008, and hope to do another one before the end of this summer. I had five boys aged 13-15 that attended the three-day-event. It was focused mainly on the area of work ethic, which I was taught very strongly by my dad and granddad, but that many boys today never get the chance to learn. I called it the Nehemiah Corps Boot Camp (NCBC), after the Biblical man who organized a work project to rebuild the wall of Jerusalem. I had the support, prayers, and counsel of several other men, but I conducted the camp myself. If you would like, check out this link http://www.thebiblestudycenter.com/Body_Life/Entries/2008/8/12_Discipleship.html to learn more. I've also recently begun a teaching series on manliness at my church (where my dad is the pastor). The first (and forthcoming) installments can be heard here: http://www.thebiblestudycenter.com/Family_Life/Entries/2009/6/30_Manliness.html

Wow, Colton. That is quite an undertaking! How many boys do you have in the camp? Are they all ages? Do you have other adults to help mentor?
