F3 Knoxville

Bringing F3 to the Mend House

F3 Knoxville has partnered with the men of The Mend House to bring our fellow brothers some Fitness, Fellowship and Faith. Reico Hopewell, The Mend House director invited us to hold a group workout a few weeks ago drawing over 30 men out on a cold evening. We have continued this with three additional workouts to date with more planned and possibly the birth of a new F3 location in Fountain City. One of the new F3 brothers who we named Bacon, said this after the last workout. “I Think I speak for all of us when I say even though its rough on us right now we truly enjoy and appreciate y’all taking the time and giving us the opportunity to be a part of something bigger than ourselves. “. That is what it’s all about, leading, serving, and  encouraging each other. Stay tuned for a possible AO launch announcement in the Fountain City area in the next few weeks thanks to the effort of these men!

Great day at the 1st F3 Knoxville Inner-City Kids Workout

God blessed us today with beautiful weather for F3 Knoxville  to come downtown and hold a kids workout for kids that need male leadership in their lives. 18 F3 HIMs came out to bond with 21 of their kid partners and crush the workout. We also had 8 F3 2.0s in attendance as well as an adult FNG or two that need to come out again!

During the BOM, We shared the importance of leaning on each other in tough times, keeping each other out of bad situations and trusting God to help us through those difficulties. At the end, Christmas came a little early as men brought a small gift for each of the kids. They were very happy and had a great time. Several were asking when F3 would come back again….This may be the start of a good relationship with these kids as we can plan other activities as well. Praise God for the opportunity to be with these awesome kids today. A special thanks to @Tinder (program director at WH) for getting the kids together and allowing us this opportunity to serve theses kids. He is a true HIM!
