Do You Want to be a Better Dad?
M46 DADS inspires and equips fathers to intentionally fight for the hearts of their children!
Become an M46 Dad
In 3 easy steps
1. Start a Crash or go solo
A group of birds is a flock, a group of fish is a school, but a group of rhinos is a Crash. When M46 Dads get together it is not a meeting, it is a Crash. Crashes can be a small group of friends, a large group of men, or can even be one man going solo.
2. Get your materials
You need the M46 Participant’s Guide for Crash Course Season 1, a pen, and a desire to fight for the hearts of your children. M46 Dads also offers optional certification for leaders who want to be trained to be as effective as possible.
3. Complete the Crash Course
The Participant’s Guide for Crash Course Season 1 is nine sessions that consist of a link to video instruction for that session, inspiring stories of both success and failure, a principle to guide your parenting, an image to remember the session, and a challenge to complete with your children. We ask all men who START Crash Course 1 to commit to FINISH IT by completing all 9 challenges with their children!
Fight For Their Hearts
Fight for Their Hearts will equip you with the resources and encouragement you need to be the dad you’ve always wanted to be. With stories from dads just like you and real-life ideas for families in every season, this is not a how-to-do book – it’s a road map straight to your heavenly Father’s heart. Because when you know God’s love for you, you can know that He can fulfill His promise to bring parents and children together. Become the man God made you to be so you can be the dad your kids need you to be. Starting now.
Crash Course Participant's Guide
Every father longs to see his heart and his children’s hearts turned toward one another, just as the Bible promises. Yet we often feel powerless to make a difference in our families. The M46 Crash Course Participant’s Guide equips us to model a relationship with Jesus Christ for our children as we experience our own spiritual renewal. Complete with prayer prompts, real-life challenges, visual images for each lesson, and a link to a leader’s guide, the M46 Crash Course Participant’s Guide is a holistic program that gives you the hope and guidance you need to make life-giving changes in your home starting today.
OF CASTING CROWNS
”As a man who follows Jesus, there is no role in my life that I take more seriously than being a dad…”
“M46 Has Become That Community for Me…”
“Growing up as I became a man, there were many challenges I had to face. I was so grateful for the people in my life who were there for me when things got dark, when I had someone to go to for help and hope. But as I became a dad, I quickly saw that journey as a man can be one of the loneliest paths we walk. Because we’re not really sure what the rules are. We aren’t certain where to go when something’s not working out with our children. And then when we think we have one kid figured out, our next is totally different, and we start all over.
Too often, we just feel like we are totally blowing this fatherhood thing. I remember thinking it would be so good if someone, anyone, could come alongside and run a few laps with me, to let me know that other dads feel like I did, like they’re blowing it too. But also that we can go to God together to find encouragement and strength to grow and press on.
I want you to know that M46 Dads has become that community for me. And I’m so grateful and excited to let you know that M46 is now available for you.

Who We Are
We Are M46 Dads
Inspiring and Equipping Fathers to Fight For The Hearts Of Their Children
What is the vision of M46 Dads?
The vision of M46 Dads is to IGNITE A REVOLUTION!
The definition of a “revolution” is the physical overthrow of a current social order. The current social order is not only characterized by fatherless homes but also visionless homes where the father is not the spiritual leader!
Our homes, churches, communities, and country are under attack.
Proverbs 29:18 says, “Where there is no vision, people perish.” The vision of M46 Dads is to equip fathers to be the spiritual leaders of their families!
What is the mission of M46 Dads?
The mission of M46 DADS is to inspire and equip fathers to fight for the hearts of their children. We exist to provide HOPE and HELP to any man who desires to be a better dad! Our goal is to see men fully intentionally embrace their roles as the Provider, Protector, and Priest of their homes!
What does M46 stand for?
M46 stands for the last verse of the Old Testament, Malachi 4:6, which says, “And he will turn the hearts of fathers to their children and the hearts of children to their fathers…”
What do Rhinos have to do with dads?
- The rhino is a HUMONGOUS creature. Whether they are present, absent, good, or bad, dads are HUMONGOUS in the lives of their kids
Scripture says, “The glory/weight of a child is their father…”
- A rhino can run over 30 mph but can only see 30 feet in front of itself. The rhino has that massive horn because it runs into stuff at full speed!
We tell men that we are going to make mistakes, because as dads, we are like rhinos in that we have to “run by FAITH and not by SIGHT!”
- A group of birds is a flock, a group of fish is a school, but a group of rhinos is called a CRASH! Men need a real, authentic, transparent community and brotherhood in their lives.
This is why we call our get-togethers Crashes. We want CRASH Communities started in every city and town around the world.
“And he will turn the hearts of fathers to their children and the hearts of children to their fathers…”

“I am so thankful for M46 DADS, a place that I can go to be equipped to be the type of dad I want to be for my sons. I just wish we could have had something like this years ago when I was a child. I wish my dad could have been involved in something like this.”
