About Us...

Hi, I'm Dave Bowerman, author of Higher Pursuits—Overcoming the Lies that Keep Us from Freedom, Power, and Purpose.

Higher Pursuits is a ministry that helps men find freedom, power, and purpose through the gospel. We believe when we allow the gospel to work completely in our lives, we become surpised at what it is able to do.

Our approach taps the power of the gospel in a very effective way: by helping men see seven self-deceptions that prevent them from being the men they were born
to be, and trade those for seven "higher pursuits" that, you guessed it, lead them into freedom, power, and purpose. We do this with the aid of the proven resources Higher Pursuits and The Higher Pursuits ​Video Series.  

If you desire to get started with Higher Pursuits coaching, simply contact us above. The initial consultation is free with no further obligation, so that we can understand your needs and explain how we might help you. If, for some reason, Higher Pursuits does not seem to us to be the right fit for you right now, we will tell you so and explain why. All of the work that we do with men—whether in person, online, or by phone—is completely confidential.
