Hope and help for every dad


All dads desire to be better fathers and have a spiritual influence in the life of their kids. They long to improve but struggle to find practical guidance and encouragement along the way. Often, they end up feeling inadequate and don’t even know why.

In their new book Fight for Their Hearts: Hope and Help for Every Dad, authors Kenny Dallas and Tim Sexton equip fathers with the resources and encouragement that they need to fight for their families. Developed for dads by dads, this book introduces Christian men to the idea of biblical fatherhood and impresses upon them the need for community, discipleship, and encouragement.

Kenny Dallas has been a high school football coach for over 20 years and currently serves as the head football coach at Trinity Christian School in Sharpsburg, Georgia. Kenny's greatest desire is to live a life that truly matters--one that is intentionally focused on his relationship with the Lord, his relationship with his family, and the impact he has on all those the Lord puts in His path.


Tim Sexton serves as Pastor of Men's Discipleship at Eagles Landing Baptist Church. Tim's one goal in ministry now is to help people see the difference between pursuing an outward, polished image that will appease the supposedly angry God and impress everyone else, and being transformed by the gospel from the inside out.
