Get Open

I’m creating this opportunity so we can get open and go farther together. I believe a lot of us sit alone trying to figure out our relationship with God, our families, and friends as we do life.

At times we keep our concerns to ourselves and muddle through life because we think we can do it alone. We don’t only need community, but we need to be around others who we can relate to, learn from, and connect around the same things.  Sometimes we need someone who has been around a bit longer and has a bit more life experience.

After 36 years of working with young adults, married couples, and athletes, Fireproof Ministries is helping me to create this faith-based opportunity for you. You will have someone to get open with; to walk & talk with, so that you don’t have to walk alone in faith, family and life; Somewhat like a “personal trainer”, not for the physical but for the spiritual and relational part of life.

I will be offering a limited amount of openings for former athletes and a few others like you to connect with me on the phone weekly to talk, share, ask or get clarity in any or all of these relationships. There will also be opportunities for your spouse to get in on this with us if you desire. Together we will customize an approach to help you best to thrive in faith, family and life.

I am looking for men who want to make a one year (at a time) commitment to talk regularly on the phone.

Weekly Phone Call

We will meet most weeks for 1 Hour on the phone. When we talk we can figure out the best method for that conversation (Voice or Video), and the best time for you to talk (typically 7am-6pm Pacific Time M-F).

Over time  we will decide together what would be the most helpful for you: Q & A, Read & Discuss the Bible, Read & Discuss a Book together (I have gone through many books with guys over the years, so if you don’t have an idea, you can suggest the topic and i will likely have a book idea).

There might be times where you just need someone to listen, or give you counsel about a situation or a relationship; ideally the goal is to help you learn and grow in life, in relationships, or with God.

If you are married, we can discuss the possibility for your wife to be involved occasionally in our weekly conversations to listen or to participate (as you desire).

Email / Text (As Needed)

I’ll be in your corner and available to you in between calls, through text messaging, email, or messenger and get back to you within 24 hours.

COSTS

As we know everything has a cost in time or money.  

For the last 35 years, I have been blessed to offer this for free with a few guys a year, because I was employed by a church that allowed me to give time for this outside my daily duties.

Since these relationships (that have lasted from a year to 7 years) have been so valuable in the lives of us who have met together, i am venturing out with a non-profit called Fireproof Ministries that will allow me to spend all of my work week doing the thing I have enjoyed and been the most helpful to others, by building these relationships with people like you.

*The CEO of Fireproof, Craig Gross, was one of the students I had this relationship with since he was in the 10th grade (when I was a Youth Pastor).  He is giving me this opportunity to offer a limited amount of openings at a cost of $5,000 per year (limited amount of partial scholarships are available).

ABOUT TOM

 

My name is Tom Ramsay and I have been married to Debbie for 36 years and have 2 sons and live in Corvallis, Oregon. My passions are Faith, Family, and Sports. I have mentored young adults 1-on-1 & lead Small Groups in Faith, Life, Relationships, Ministry & Sports for over 36 years.  Each time the meetings were customized to their needs at the time and as they grew older. Some for a year or more, several for over 6 years (and counting).  I did this while working for a couple of churches.

Through “Fireproof Ministries”, I will have the opportunity to do what I’ve loved most; 1-on-1 Relationships with Men (& their wives) helping them grow and thrive in Faith, Life, and Sports.  I will be able to meet with about 20 men weekly (over the phone) and sometimes in person. Prior to coming on with Fireproof Ministries, I graduated from Western Seminary, was certified in life coaching, worked in youth and family ministry for 35 years and also serve as the chaplain for OSU Beavers Football (9 yrs) and OSU Baseball (2 yrs).

I currently volunteer as the chaplain for the Corvallis High School football teams and work with many professional athletes like Brandin Cooks of the Los Angeles Rams.
