The Third F is the Biggest of Them All

FThe third F stands for Faith. Some people are put off by that because they are worried that we will be forcing Jesus on them. That's not our mission. We are not a religious organization, and we are open to ALL men, no matter their beliefs. While some men directly associate faith with God, we tend to understand faith more generally as a connection to something greater than ourselves.

We believe and understand that we are not the beginning and end. We are a tiny piece of humanity, our world, our universe. Our discipline with fitness and nutrition builds our bodies better. Our commitment and loyalty to our brothers in fellowship builds our psyche and emotional durability better. When a man is growing in this way, he begins to find purpose and meaning with his life, and looks to improve those around him in his community; especially those most in need. We call it "picking up the six".

This is the unlocking of leadership and potential that is possible in all men, and which the men of F3 Cape Fear are accelerating through every day.

While we have done amazing things in Cape Fear, we are excited for the endless positive impact yet to come.
