We all have a story. But most of the time we're unwilling to look closely at our story because, on the surface, it either appears dull and unimpressive, or it's too far in the past to warrant any further examination.
But when we curiously and courageously open our story, we discover our lives reveal not only who we are, but who God is.
Led by Restoration Project Staff member Jesse French, Next Page is designed for men wanting to dig into their story, perhaps for the first time. Dr. Dan Allender’s book and workbook titled “To Be Told” will be read and interwoven with intentional experience, enabling participants to engage their story on a deeper level, pursue and enter the stories of others with kindness, and join God in the writing the next page of their journey.
This 8-week group will meet 7 times in person, with one week as an off-site individually guided experience for each participant to engage on their own. No cost for the off-site personal experience, though all participants are highly encouraged to participate as part of the group process.

Meet The Next Page Group Facilitator
Jesse French, RP Chief of Next Steps
I serve as the Chief of Next Steps for our partner men's ministry called Restoration Project. We seek to restore men through helping them intentionally engage as fathers and brothers. My two years of work at Restoration Project have been the biggest and best surprise of my life. I'm humbled and grateful to be part of work that not only values the pursuit of men's hearts, but does so in a unique way through the intentional weaving of experience, story, and blessing.
I have also completed the Restoration Institute alongside the rest of the Restoration team, and love to engage the stories of harm and glory in the lives of people.
I continue to be amazed at God's goodness and healing that shows up time and time again when men dare to open their story. I am thrilled to facilitate this group and see how we'll encounter God in new ways as comb through our lives with hopeful curiosity. I've lived in Fort Collins my entire life and adore my wife and three kids. I believe Cutthroat Trout are the pinnacle of Creation, followed closely by Angus cattle.
