"The Band of Brothers’ Ministry is committed to assisting churches in creating vibrant men’s ministries. We have a vision that “image-bearing men” will be released for the sake of the Kingdom. We believe that God’s Kingdom is advancing, and the men and their churches are being called to unite in brotherhood and join our King.
Church Partners - Free Services offered by Band of Brothers
All of the leadership of this ministry are involved in a local church (although not the same one). We believe God has ordained the church with Christ as the cornerstone – and “all the powers of hell will not conquer it.” (Matt. 16:18)
Our model for this ministry comes from our belief that real life change happens locally, over time, and in community. Therefore, we can come alongside churches all over the country, but the church is responsible for the daily care, encouragement, and discipleship of its local band.
Please take a look at some specific ways we can help you by reviewing the 10 Simple Steps to Creating a Vibrant and Lasting Men's Ministry.
By having an authorized representative/pastor of your church sign and email to us the Band of Brothers Church Partner Agreement (see below), this allows you to benefit from the many ways that we can assist your church in uniting your men for the causes of Christ, including the license to use our symbols and trademarks in your men's ministry and for your men to form a "platoon" and utilize our online community at www.NoMatterTheCost.org. These services are all free to your church!
Please scan and email the completed/signed form to [email protected].

BECOME A BAND OF BROTHERS' CHURCH PARTNER TODAY!
We want to assist churches in uniting the clans!
We want men then to say “yes” to the call of a better more meaningful and intimate story with Christ. As a result of men engaging in authentic male “in the trenches” relationships, we believe they become more free to offer authentic leadership in their marriages, families, churches, and communities. Only then can we be identified by our God-given purpose: to love God and others well. We need men to step up and lead in the local churches, and we believe we can assist churches in doing this by providing content and symbols that we believe speak to the masculine heart.
How can our ministry help your church today?
We currently provide symbols, branding, content, and teaching materials that churches can use to ignite a passionate men’s ministry – one that will call out the heart and strength of a man. Powerful symbols and material can be used by God to help rally men around a common cause. Men desire to be part of a noble cause, and they want to feel like an essential part of that cause- the cause of Christ.
How to get started?
You can begin by having your church execute the Band of Brothers' Church Partner Agreement. This Agreement provides a license to your church to utilize our symbols and branding of the Band of Brothers' Ministry. There is no need for your church to "re-invent the wheel" by creating your own branding for your men's ministry. And this license doesn't cost your church anything - other than your church's commitment to abide by the terms of the Agreement.
How can we help with your men's ministry?
Symbols and logos – The sword-shaped celtic cross is a symbol that represents an invitation into a better story: a “no matter the cost” decision to follow Christ. We use the symbol in conjunction with our rings, other jewelry, our retreats, clothing, and our teaching materials. Just like early Christians used the sign of the fish as a symbol to know who they could depend on during the intense times of persecution and battle, this symbol serves the same purpose. Unfortunately, the sign of the fish and the basic cross symbol (that have been used by Christians for centuries) have been diluted through the years. Our symbols are protected under US Federal Trademark and Copyright laws (together with intellectual property treaties in other countries throughout the world). We are utilizing the laws to protect these symbols from being diluted by the world. Our symbols are being used to unite the clans for the causes of Christ. And by having an authorized representative of your church sign our "Band of Brothers' Church Partnership Agreement," your church is licensed to utilize our symbols pursuant to the terms of the Agreement. The Agreement can be downloaded here.
Online Community - We offer an online community at www.nomatterthecost.org that can be utilized by the men in your church. We allow your church to create a "Platoon" for your men so that they can keep up with men's events at your church and they can communicate with other men in your church in honest and real dialogue. They also can communicate with other "sold out" men involved in this ministry who are located across the world. We also have a platoon for all the leaders of the men's ministries at each church. The goal of this platoon is for the leaders to share ideas regarding how to create a vibrant men's ministry in churches. Again, this service is free for all churches who sign our Church Partnership Agreement.
Content – There is a lot of written content on this website describing the Battle, the need for Brotherhood, and God’s ultimate victory. These are materials that can be used to encourage men to become Christ-like leaders in their homes, churches, and communities. This content can be licensed for your Church's use by signing the above Agreement.
The Ring – The Band of Brothers Ring is a gift used to call out men to live a "no matter the cost" relationship with Christ in authentic community with other men. It is used to symbolically invite other men into a better story than the one they are living. It is a way to invite men to live a better story - a "no matter the cost" relationship with Christ our King. It also invites men into a Jonathan/David relationship of authentic brotherhood. Most men have never been taught how to communicate such a God-given desire of real brotherhood in a manly way.
The rings come with gift-cards to train men with examples of words to say to call out other men. The rings then can be used by the recipients of the rings to make a covenant with God to engage as true disciples of Christ – "no matter the cost." The ring then serves as a monument to remember their covenant with God. Read more about The Band of Brothers' Ring.
Small Group Study Guides - We offer small group guidebooks which supplement and extend the material covered at the retreat. This helps keep the momentum from the retreat and to provide a platform so that the men can begin sharing their stories and battles in the context of a small group of men. These materials also can be utilized even for men who have never attended one of our retreats.

Promotional Posters – The Band of Brothers’ posters are a great way to promote a grass-roots “movement” of Christ in your church. Yes, “Aslan is on the move!” By placing these posters throughout your church facility, it can help build a curiosity in the men about what is going on – and an excitement about getting involved. The symbolism of the poster can help explain the men’s movement that is happening in your church.
Merchandise – We also offer various merchandize utilizing the symbol (e.g. t-shirts, hats, gifts to sons and wives, etc.). Church Partners can co-brand T-shirts for your next Band of Brothers event. This is a great way to create a sense of community and brotherhood in your church men’s movement. To visit our online store to see more of our merchandise, click here.

Rites of Passage for Sons and Daughters – We desire to help fathers initiate and bless their children through a “Rite of Passage” ceremony. Our children are becoming men and women who will be the next generation of “no matter the cost” followers of Christ. We currently have materials to assist a father in blessing and commissioning his sons and daughters. For more information, click here.
