Share the Fire. Share the Fight.
The offer of Jesus is life, but your journey to take hold of it will be the fight of your life. You can win that fight, but you cannot do it alone. Share the battle with men who want the same things you want and have to fight through the same stuff to get it. There is tremendous hope and power in our stories, which is why we take a few hours together off the front lines. Stories among good men embolden, bring deeply needed perspective, instruct, inspire, and are medicine to the soul. Where are you getting this? Come and get it here.
"Blessed be God, my mountain, who trains me to fight fair and well." - King David

First Bloom
Two things that made this weekend really special: First, as a dad to four daughters, I find the need to break out of the busyness and spend intentional time with each one individually. This weekend provided the perfect opportunity to pour specifically into my 11 year old and pursue her heart as a unique individual. We adventured, laughed, stretched our limits, spoke of the deeper things in life and created memories that will last forever. Secondly, the content of the weekend served a reminder of just how critical dad's involvement is in the life of his girl and what an honor it is to be entrusted with such a role. I came away supercharged and encouraged. The doors that opened in our relationship as a result have led to deeper talks and a place from which to shepherd her heart.

First Bloom
Participated in First Bloom at Camp Eagle with my 12 year old daughter Susanna. Jay did a fantastic job making this a weekend to remember. Suze and I have a great relationship, but with busy lives, school and sports I know I don’t take enough time to have special one on one time with her. First Bloom was a great punctuation mark....a celebration of what Dads and their daughters should be. It formalized in a very tangible way what Suzie knows to be true....that I love her dearly....and created a fantastic memory for the both of us. I thinks it’s easy to feel a little helpless and hopeless as Dads sometimes when it comes to connecting with our kids. First Bloom was a blessing and will be a blessing to anyone who wants that connection. The great thing is Jay does all the heavy lifting. Just show up and enjoy God’s goodness!

First Tracks
WOW!!! To say that my expectations were exceeded is an understatement. I prayed for God to show up in a big way, and He did not disappoint. I am eternally grateful for Jay Heck and crew for orchestrating a divine appointment needed for both my son and I. From the adventures we took, public confirming him, and quiet time I had with the Lord and my son is a memory that both Nick and I will cherish for the rest of our lives. Besides the day I married my bride, and birth of my children, the experience we had together made the top 5 moments of my life! Praise to God! Thank you Jay Heck and your amazing team!

First Tracks
I first attended a Basic Boot Camp hosted by Alamo Band of Brothers (ABOB) in November 2008, where Jay Heck was one of the leaders. Since then I have attended a second basic boot camp hosted by ABOB, where a friend joined me, and I attended a Ransomed Heart Advanced Boot Camp with the men of ABOB. All of that was a lead-in to my most recent event with Jay Heck, the inaugural First Tracks father/son adventure that he is doing with through his new ministry, Being Sons. (In the interest of full disclosure, I am married to Jay Heck's cousin.) I went with faith that Jay would lead a phenomenal event, and I was not disappointed. The weekend was a memorable time of bonding with my seven year old son. He was sad to leave and was asking when we were going back to Camp Eagle. Jay and the counselors at Camp Eagle did a great job of encouraging my son and helping him to overcome his fears. I would recommend this event to any father who desires to build a deeper relationship with his son, and receive encouragement on raising a son to become a Warrior for Christ.

Being Sons from a Wife & Mom perspective
In the spirit of full disclosure, Jay Heck is my cousin. In that role, I have known him a very long time. :) I have seen him grow into an amazing, Godly man accepting the call to lead his family and mentor other men. Attending Ransomed Heart Boot Camps has only renewed and reinforced that passion. I have been blessed watching him grow into the man God designed for him to be. His involvement with Ransomed Heart let to my husband attending several Boot Camp weekends and encouraging him to embrace the role God has placed upon him to lead our family in the same way. My husband and 7 year old son recently attended a Being Son's weekend. My son came back and was so excited to tell me that he conquered a fear during a rock climbing event and couldn't wait to use his fire starter again. He loves camping outdoors with my husband and calls it an adventure. As a mom of soon to be two boys, I am blessed to know that we have a resource to encourage all of them as they grow into the Godly men they are designed to become. I see the desperate need our world has for groups such as Being Sons to heal men who then are able to raise their boys the way God intended. I wholeheartedly support Jay and his mission to provide that resource and will support him in any way possible to continue this mission God has charged him to lead.

An Awesome Weekend with my son!
I've read most of the books about raising sons but nothing compared to the weekend I spent with my son at "First Tracks" purposefully beginning the journey with him. It was encouraging for me as a father to see other dads in the fight for their sons. I also feel better equipped to take on this important task and adventure as Jay Heck poured into us and led us on this path. My son and I are better for it and God was honored and glorified. I will be bringing my other sons to the next ones.

First Tracks
I wasn't really sure what to expect when I signed up for this event; my hope was to have some sort of inaugural event to begin my 9 yr old son's journey into manhood. I got that and so much more! The event was fantastic, and Jay and his family did a fantastic job of putting this on. The entire weekend was well planned, with a good mix of father-son activities, free time, and instruction in the ways of fatherhood. I left the weekend with a good idea of how to spend the next several years raising my son into a man, and I look forward to more offerings from Being Sons in the future!

First Tracks
I spent the last weekend at the First Tracks manhood basecamp with my 10 year old son and words don't describe how great the experience was for both of us. It is important to live the bigger life that God intended for us men and this basecamp allows for both you and your son to experience that bigger life together. It can be difficult to show our sons this bigger life this day in age. Man has been pushed into a smaller world driven by technology, but rest assured your experience at First Tracks will push your relationship with your son and father in heaven to new heights!

ABOB BASIC / ADVANCED / NORDIC BASE CAMP
You will not meet many men like Jay Heck in your lifetime... I first met him at an ABOB Boot Camp, in Texas. The last time I was with him, we were trekking through the Lyngen Alps (above the Arctic Circle in Norway). After you journey with him for a while...people will not meet many men like you!

BASIC Camp/Big Bend Adventure/Fight Club
Father led me to the Alamo Band of Brothers BASIC Boot Camp in Feb of 2016, where he had so many gifts for me. One of those gifts was meeting Jay Heck, member of ABOB and founder of Being Sons. Jay has been walking the narrow road, the ancient path for over a decade with his ABOB brothers. He welcomes other pilgrims to walk with him, doing so through his monthly Fight Club gatherings, camping adventures and ABOB Boot Camps. Through God's provision and Jay's willingness to share his story over the past year, I've found my own band of brothers. There is something special going on right now in San Antonio, and ground zero is just beyond Jay's cul-de-sac under a century oak with a crackling fire. There men, either first time Fight Clubbers or veterans are learning to fight for their hearts and for the hearts of their families. Or rather we are allowing Father to contend with us, knowing he has good things for us as his Sons. We are Being Sons so we can learn how to Be Sons. And its a beautiful thing - every time. If you are reading these reviews now and considering making the leap and attending a Being Sons or Alamo Band of Brothers event, know this: The enemy will do all he can to keep you away, but the Trinity is greater. And Father has gifts for you here if you can make it off the front lines of this life, take the risk and allow him to Father you. We look forward to seeing you around the fire. Its a safe place, and one of the rules of Fight Club is if you don't yet have anything to say, that is an honorable and respectable place to be. We share stories, and yours is welcome.

Fight Club
I have known Jay for several years and have been blessed by various gatherings he has led. Fight Club is an exceptional event primarily due to its simplicity and "non-event" nature. You will find no religion here, only authentic men sharing their adventure with Jesus.

Fight Club
Fight Club is by far my favorite men's gathering all month! As a pastor I rarely get to unplug, especially during the week. Sitting around the fire pit under the old oak tree with other like minded men is such a refreshment to my soul. I love Jay, his leadership, and taking men from my church to FC!
