Travis Uptegrove | The Power of Brotherhood

Christian Brotherhood impacts every area of a man’s life. And too many men are trying to go through life as the lone wolf, figuring out things by themselves. But men were not created to walk through life alone. We need friends by our side, we need friends to hold us accountable, we need friends who will walk the walk with us.

Having great friends, having a brotherhood you can count on helps you, it helps your sons and daughters, it helps your wife, it helps all around you as you are changed into the man God created you to be. In this episode, my guest answers lots of questions about friendship and Christian Brotherhood, so let’s get started.

Travis Uptegrove has been married for 22 years to his wife, Kristina, and they have four boys, ages 19, 16, 12, and 8. Travis founded Element 26 Men’s Ministry in Chattanooga, TN in 2016 with his annual men’s retreat, and in 2021, he launched his first event in Florida.  The goal of Element 26 is to build a community of men who are striving to have a stronger walk with God, and in the process becoming better husbands, fathers, and men for Christ.
