If you’re a dad who wants to know he’s leading well, we want to help. Faith for Fathers strives to empower dads to lead their families, live out their faith and leave a legacy that honors God.

This concept was birthed from our personal experiences as dads; some, where we did things right and others where we totally blew it. Reflecting back on our experiences reveals moments that could have been avoided if only someone had stepped into our lives and re-directed us or given us a map to follow.

Our goal is to help dads leave a Godly legacy by creating opportunities for fathers to intentionally lead their children to be the young men and young women God created them to become. If you are looking for a resource to empower you to be intentional about your role as a dad, this site is for you.

Here’s our founder and director, Jonathan Bright sharing a quick overview of what Faith for Fathers is all about…

Jonathan Bright

Hi, I’m Jonathan Bright and I call Spartanburg, South Carolina home. I am a graduate of the University of South Carolina (Spartanburg Campus), and have a Masters of Divinity from Liberty University. I have been married to my beautiful wife Mary Beth since 1996, and God has blessed us with three beautiful children (Elise, Abby, and Cameron). I have worked with children, teenagers, and college students since 1998, serving as both a Student Pastor and a Camp Director. My experience in those roles as well as my journey as a husband and father, has birthed in me a passion to help other Fathers embrace their calling as a spiritual leader, and leave a Godly legacy for their children.

If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. (John 15:7, NIV)

Hello! I’m Dwayne Morris. I met my lovely bride, Angela at Clemson University where we both graduated in 1991. We now reside in Inman, SC with our three children: Taylor, Logan and Avery. I have served the family of First Baptist North Spartanburg, Spartanburg, SC since 1996. I began as the Student Pastor and then moved to other areas of ministry that has allowed me to work with people of all ages from children to senior adults. My greatest desire is to help people of all ages discover a personal relationship with the Lord and live a “full-screen” life His Glory. That’s why I love to be a small part of Faith for Fathers. I have a “front-row” seat to the vision God has placed on the Bright’s heart.

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. (John 10:10, NIV)
