We need a culture of intergenerational discipleship.


Religious ‚Äúnones‚ÄĚ are rising, and men are steadily becoming more detached from religion and church. Millions of men in their 20s and 30s are hungry for hope and guidance in life, marriage, family, and career.

Ten Thousand Spiritual Fathers mobilizes Christian men to disciple and guide the next generation.


Ten Thousand Spiritual Fathers (XSF) is a mentoring initiative to equip 10,000 men for man-to-man discipleship.
XSF encourages, educates, and empowers mature Christian men with a discipleship roadmap.
