"Encouraging Brothers Through the Storms of Life"

2019 "Fatherhood Reimagined" Conference


We are partnering with Mount Olivet Church to co-host the 2019 Fatherhood Conference in just a few short weeks. The theme of this year’s conference is “Turning the hearts of the fathers back to the children and the hearts of the children back to the father.”

We invite you to join us on Saturday, June 15, 2019 from 7:30 am to 4 pm for a day of empowerment, encouragement and celebration of “Fatherhood.” Then join us on Sunday, June 16, 2019 from 10 am to 12:30 pm for a Father’s Day Message.

The conference will be held at Mount Olivet Church, 1223 N. 25th Street, Richmond, VA 23222.

The 2019 Fatherhood Conference is a community outreach event that will provide fatherhood guidance, practical application of biblical principles pertaining to fatherhood and community resources. There will be a dynamic keynote speaker, interactive workshops on raising sons and daughters, new or teenage dads and co-parenting, as well as a panel discussion on the Father Wound and finding balance in life. 

Come get inspired by successful fathers like Bishop Darryl F. Husband, Bishop John Gray, Minister Stephan Hicks, Taurus Rogers, Hassan Fountain, Antione Bailey, Mark Davis, Hasan K. Zariff and others to be added.

The conference is FREE to fathers of all ages. Advance registration is required. Please feel free to pass this information on to anyone whom you feel could benefit from this conference. Receive a free suit, swag bags, door prizes and more!


Anyone interested in volunteering for the event or donating men’s accessories (underwear, socks, belts), toiletries, motivational books, gift cards or any other gift or you would like to provide a resource should contact Stephan “Coach” Hicks [email protected] or 804-502-3239.

Fathers in Action

Our "Fathers in Action Support Group" helps men 25 and over to engage with their family, friends and community in ways that are healthy, nurturing  and consistent.

It seeks to engage men in the application of practical life and fatherhood skills through classroom instruction that leads to stronger families and community. 


It encourages men to connect with their family and community in ways that are counter-intuitive to most of us in order to maintain healthy relationships.

It seeks to empower them with business, leadership skills, and organization skills that lead to personal and professional advancement. 


It encourages them to examine how first impressions make lasting impressions, to develop a sense of style in their dress, and recognize the importance of personal grooming in obtaining and maintaining meaningful employment.
