Welcome to the Mentor Classic Ministry!

This ministry started over 21 years ago when two of the founding members felt the calling of the Holy Spirit to break the generational bods that they grew up with, and the strong desire not to pass them on to their sons.  It started primarily as a way for fathers & sons to spend time together enjoying God's creation.  Over the years, it has broadened in membership, scope & events.  What started as a long weekend event in the fall, now includes: regular monthly meetings, the Spring Classic, Mentor Madness, a healing ministry and our main signature event - the Fall Classic.

 Besides providing a venue where fathers can deepen their relationship with their sons, one area of emphasis is to reach boys who don't have a strong male role model in their lives. Another area of emphasis is the calling out and acceptance of our older boys into manhood and what it means to be a man that is a follower of Christ. (more...)
