The Influencers' National and International Ministries

The Influencers is an exciting new ministry to men that officially began in January of 2005. In 2001, our founder, Rocky Fleming, gathered a group of men, offering them this invitation: “I’m going on a journey to intimacy with Jesus Christ. Why don’t you come along?” The journey that these men went on together was one that saw them develop a nine-month process allowing each man to genuinely connect with God at the heart, through journaling and considering the timeless biblical truths about God, His character, and nature. The process helped these men not only make significant, life-changing breakthroughs in their understanding of whom God really is, but it also helped them become “self-feeders” in their relationship with Christ.

These men’s lives were changed and impacted so much that they encouraged Rocky to start a ministry that would offer this opportunity to thousands of other men hungry for more of God.

Since that time, this group has grown into involving hundreds of men who desire a deeper walk with Christ in:

   • Northwest Arkansas
   • Tulsa, Oklahoma
   • Orange County, San Diego, and Sacramento, California
   • Munich, Germany
   • Cairo, Egypt

The Journey book graphic
The Journey to the Inner Chamber, the book by Rocky Fleming relating his personal vision experience for ministering to men, has been translated into Arabic, is currently being translated into Spanish, and is being considered for translation into French, Swahili, and several other languages. Each of these ministry locations have their own personality and model, but the one thing we all have in common is our use of and commitment to going through the process that we know as “The Journey.”

The ministry began by ministering to men in the marketplace and has now spread to men’s ministries in various churches who are interested in helping their men grow in their intimacy and closeness to Christ.

The Mission of The Influencers:
To invite all of God’s men into a more intimate relationship with Jesus Christ.

The Vision of The Influencers:
To invite all men to go on the Influencers' Journey.

We’re going on a journey to intimacy with Jesus Christ. Why don’t you come along?

Here are "clips" (remarks) about what Influencers has meant to some of our members. We later will place some actual audio clips here so you can hear their testimonies in their own voices.

"It's been great this past year to meet Christian brothers of all backgrounds and ages with great stories how God's preserved and blessed them through tough circumstances over the years. Everyone goes through something tough sometime, and the support and encouragement have taught me a lot. God's bringing me and my business to better places as He keeps weaving great friendships around me. I'm bringing some of my closest buddies to visit Influencers and witness true "fellowship." —Alan K.

"I don't know what it is about Influencers, but there's something really special about it and the Friday Band of Brothers meeting. I know I want to keep coming, because I know it's good for me." —Bob I.

"These guys have prayed with me during some tough times in the past, and I'm bringing as many guys as I can to let them experience how awesome Influencers is." —Mark H.
