Charleston Band of Brothers
CBOB is a group of men in the Charleston Sc area who are committed to help men grow in their faith. They host retreats called “Life to The Limit”. The Life to the Limit weekend is an honest, no-BS trek into the deep passions and desires of a man’s heart – the healing of the wounds he’s taken in this battle – in the realm of fatherhood, God, religion, females, sex and calling. It reveals life as it was meant to be lived – abundant, true, and free. Life to the Limit is based on John Eldredge’s Wild at Heart Bootcamp in Colorado.
Through the sessions, times of quiet reflection, movies, adventures and downtime, you will discover something profound about the heart of God and the heart he gave you as a man. Consider bringing close friends as a way to build a band of brothers that will strengthen and encourage you long after the weekend is over.

Anglican Leadership Initiative
We draw together humble, gifted, missional, and anointed Anglican Leaders in North America for spiritual growth and refreshment, exposure to professional leadership coaching, and the ongoing work of relationally connecting orthodox Anglican leaders in North America.
Spiritual Growth and Refreshment
Christian ministry is beautiful. Pastors experience the love, joy, peace, grace and power that shine forth in the life of God’s church. The attention pastors pay to budgets, committees and administrative duties should be balanced with activities that evoke wonder in this wondrous calling. Pastors need “interruptions” from day-to-day routines to cultivate their imaginations. Reading across disciplines, reflecting in nature, and engaging in cultural experiences allow pastors to cross imaginative borders, in order to reconnect with the telos — the end — of their ministries and see anew the beauty of their calling to serve God in the church and the world.
Personal and Individual Leadership Coaching
Recent research has demonstrated two-thirds of leaders within the church do not offer long-term leadership and contribution, but rather shrink back from the leadership position into a position of maintenance. A seventeen-year study produced similar statistics, expanding to include that:
- 80% of pastors feel unqualified and discouraged in their role as a pastor.
- 80% of seminary and Bible school graduates will leave the ministry within the first five years.
- 50% of pastors would leave the ministry but have no other way to make a living.
Coaching has helped reverse these findings. Effective leadership coaching combined with training alone increased productivity 88 percent. The same study states that providing coaching to executives resulted in improvements to: quality, organizational strength, job satisfaction, and organizational commitment.
Anglican Leadership Network and Development
We create important space to be with other leaders representing different missional areas of North America. Participants are nominated and invited because their Bishop or Rector believe they desire to see the Anglican expression of following Christ lived out in way that keeps us missional in focus, charitable in action, and uncompromising in orthodoxy. They engage in this community, share their best practices, pray and worship, as they are challenged in the midst of beauty, solitude and recreation.
