Equipping Fathers – Major League Dad



Beth Diemert, Director of Affiliate Services at Heartbeat International interviews Gary Freeman, founder of Major League Dad. Although his father was a pastor, Gary found himself at a point in college where he wanted nothing to do with God. Football took the lead in his life for a while, but Gary shares how he was led not only to find his faith again, but also to start a ministry focused on helping men become better husbands and fathers. Beth and Gary cover marriage, fatherhood, mental health, and reaching men through the work of pregnancy centers.
