We help men find uncommon freedom through Jesus Christ.
How? Daily prayer. Intentional sacrifice. Fraternal accountability.
That’s the short of it.
Most people know us from our first spiritual exercise — Exodus 90. In fact, over 100,000 men have taken up that journey with us (in over 75 countries).
Today, we have daily formation tools and a clear road map for men to live the uncommon life every day of the year — ebbing and flowing with the calendar the Church gives us.
Yes, sometimes we fast. But, other times, we feast.
That’s what the Church has been doing for ages. We just turned it orange and made it a bit more accessible through our app.
We start with a baseline Plan of Life:
How is your relationship with God? Are you consistent and honest in your time with Him?
Should your friends and family trust the decisions you make? Will you lead them where the Lord calls in good times and in bad?
Without a life firmly rooted in prayer, it’s impossible. If we don’t prioritize prayer in our daily lives, we cannot grow in the knowledge and love of God.
When you start your Exodus, you will build up a habit of daily prayer — committing to a set amount of time each day. You’ll be able to start this time by reading through the Bible and a daily reflection right on the Exodus app. The reflection will help you enter more deeply into the story, and understand where you are in the journey. In the end, it will lead you into your conversation with the Lord.
We can’t say “yes” to God until we have said “no” to the world and its comforts. With Exodus, you’ll return to the Church’s ancient – and largely forgotten – tradition of asceticism (a fancy word for “acts of self-denial”).
The ascetic practices laid out in Exodus help men detach from the things of the world.
Asceticism is not about proving something to yourself or others, and it is most certainly not about earning God’s grace. Though it makes Exodus distinct, it is not the point. Acts of asceticism are a means to a much greater end: union with God and with those he has entrusted to our care.
There is no ‘perfect’ Exodus journey. It’s not about becoming the ‘perfect man,’ but introducing you to the perfect man — Jesus Christ.
The life that Jesus Christ models for us from Bethlehem to Calvary is filled with true community.
Many men have buddies with whom they can drink beer and watch sports. But, very few men have true brothers. Men who truly know them and with whom they can be honest and vulnerable.
With Exodus, you will form a fraternity with 5-7 other men. And one of those men will be your anchor with whom you will check in each day. The fraternity exists to support, encourage, challenge, and show mercy! What you will find is that Exodus is unlike most small groups or Bible studies. It’s not about what you know, it’s about being real and authentic with others who are craving the same.
It’s about a true brotherhood.
And we use those during each of these Exodus Seasons:
Starts December 3rd
During the Season of Advent, we’ll grow in the theological virtue of hope as they journey to Bethlehem with Joseph and Mary.

Yes, Easter is more than just one day — it’s 50 days long. And after Exodus 90, we’ll need it! But we won’t fall back into the overconsumption and binge-ing lifestyle we had before. No, we’ll instead focus on true Christian feasting — and how to do it well.
