John Turnipseed used to lead a gang of 300 or more in Minneapolis, a gang with a reputation big enough and bad enough to have the National Guard called in against them. Now, he’s living a completely different story. The campus pastor and executive vice president at Urban Ventures, John takes his passion for fathering and uses it to minister to men and their families.
Can we move out of a broken past and into a healed future? Dr. Joe Martin believes we can --- and that we are charged to help others do the same. As someone who grew up without a father, Dr. Joe Martin knows what it’s like to crave a mentor and to need a Godly example. He speaks with Leary and Armin about what it means to be a man-builder, and why it might even be the biggest tool to break the cycle of absent fathers.
Joe Pellegrino is a speaker, author, entrepreneur, and founder of Legacy Minded Men. In this episode, Joe shares the power of a father’s blessing and how men can live up to a Biblical example of leadership.
