Want to know how to be a better dad? Here’s some help for fathers. 

Abiding Fathers welcomes you to our monthly Fathers Forum. It’s an opportunity to enjoy fatherhood, fellowship, and food.

Abiding Fathers is all about encouraging, equipping, and engaging men in developing their God-ordained leadership role as fathers in order to make disciples for the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Dads. Are you in need of encouragement as a father? Want to engage other men in their pursuit to be an example of Christ? Join us as we challenge each other and the next generation of dads.

Lawrence Marshall will be our January 18th speaker.

Born in Shreveport, Louisiana, Lawrence was the only male of three kids and raised in a single-parent household. Lawrence was influenced by his mother and a mentor to stray away from the gangs/drug influences in their neighborhood and further his education at Langston University where he received a B.S. degree.  After relocating to Dallas in 2000, Lawrence became an active volunteer in various youth programs and activities before establishing his own Christian non-profit mentoring program that would cater to at-risk youth, called Integrity Mentors (iM). Lawrence and Nikki married in September 2006.  They have three children together, Kylie, Jaden and Ramon.  Both Lawrence and his wife share a passion for mentoring youth and volunteering in the community.

We look forward to seeing you on Thursday, January 18th, for lunch at Lovers Lane United Methodist at 9200 Inwood Rd., Dallas, TX 75220.
