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?
Comment by Colton Wilson on July 3, 2009 at 4:35pm
Just joined AoM today. I am beginning mentorship of boys through my local church. I have started a summer camp and have begun teaching a series on manliness. I am also working on several new ideas.

Thanks thehuhman. I am sort of in a mentor role already as a Youth Leader in the Episcopal Church

What would be considered physically weak?

I'm obviously not a gym rat and I'm very ignorant about fitness, but I am trying to improve my health and overall body composition. To skip the point, I'm not certain on how to have a decent workout and what defines someone as physically strong. Though I'm not entirely sure of what I can do (or what my max is), the last amount of weight I've squatted was 205 lbs. which doesn't seem to be a lot since I believe most people can squat twice their weight (I weight 234 lbs. or so). I did 10 reps of…See More
