Fathers in the Field

Did you know that in the United States over 25 million children under the age of 18 are growing up without a father in their home? There are young boys right here at Shades who need a mentor father to demonstrate God’s love for them by helping them develop life skills, grow in Christian discipleship and participate in fun activities.

Fathers in the Field provides mentor fathers to young boys who need the kind of influence and relationship that a Christian man can provide.  We are looking for men who would answer this call and partner with a boy who is growing up without a father at home. Single moms with young boys who need a mentor father are also encouraged to contact us. We’d love to talk with you about the process and see if we can find a good match for your young boy. 

For more information about Fathers in the Field, e-mail menofshades@shades.org and one of our ministry leaders will contact you.  You can also visit fathersinthefield.com to learn more about the history and mission of the organization.

If you want to volunteer in this ministry but aren't sure where to begin, current volunteer opportunities are one button away.
