Many men (and women) are already hitting the woods in search of trophies and meat. I don’t hunt much but I do appreciate the great experience of meeting God in nature. Outdoor sports also provide a great way for fathers and sons to connect and for believers to share their faith with hunting buddies. I thought it would be helpful to point you toward a few resources that I know have blessed men who are avid Christ followers and hunters. Check out the links below…
Sportsmen’s Devotional – A daily devotion written by and for Christ following hunters, fishermen and outdoorsmen. Each daily message includes an outdoor photo, a key verse, thoughts on the verse from a sportsman’s perspective, an action point then a sportsman’s tip. I read this every day!
A Look at Life From a Deer Stand – A classic for Christian hunters. This book has been used by many Christ-following hunters to grow their own faith and to share with others. I know a number of guys who have done small group studies of this book with other outdoorsmen. Check it out!
God’s Great Outdoors – Gospel of John from the Pocket Testament League – Here’s a link where you could order some copies of the Gospel of John to share with other hunters. I have heard a number of great testimonies how sportsmen are sharing their faith and the Truth with others who share their passion for the outdoors
Devotions from a Hunting, Fishing and Sports Father to His Son by Gary Miller – Here’s a great resource for the outdoor dad to share Christ with his son in the outdoors. The devotions are quick, insightful and would produce great conversations. Gary has presented workshops at several of our ISI conferences and loves to speak at Wild Game Dinners.
Wild Game Dinners – These high testosterone events are sponsored by many churches in our area. Let us know if your church is planning to host a dinner and if we can help in any way. We have connections with some great speakers as well as some guys who have hosted high impact events where men choose to follow Christ and begin walking a discipleship path. Two guys in particular come to mind…
Gary Miller –has presented seminars at several of our Iron Sharpens Iron conferences. His ministry is Outdoor Truths: Aiming Outdoorsmen Toward Christ.
Bob Reccord – has been a keynote speaker as well as a seminar presenter at several of our Iron Sharpens Iron Conferences over the years. He’s hunted and fished across the country and around the world… for both game and men.
