Training Camp is the TIME every eye is set on the vision. I remember the first day of training camp in 1985 and our leader Bill Parcell’s communication in an organization wide meeting (everyone was present from the owner to the free-agents) that the purpose for everyone being in that initial meeting was for our eyes to be set on the Super Bowl.
Well, as members of Team Jesus, we’re to set our eyes on Him. Setting our eyes, minds and actions on Jesus is the building and shaping of our character. Every gifted and talented athlete, no matter how famous or valued, gets in shape for the season.
Here is our challenge: CHARACTER DETERMINES HOW A MAN PERCEIVES THE WILL OF GOD! (Psalms 18:25-26). Pastors in the SEASONS OF OUR JOURNEYS God desires to purify our faith. You are in a position of authority and shaping your character gives us an opportunity to fulfill the LORD’S purpose of purifying our faith in relation God, others, and ourselves through plugging into the Holy Spirit’s LEADERSHIP! Move the Chains!
2-time Super Bowl champion Lee Rouson and Legacy Minded Men founder Joe Pellegrino provide powerful and fun tools to answer this important question wrapped in a football metaphor. Utilizing an interactive platform and breakout sessions attendees get to know each other and more importantly themselves! Straight talk...NO FLUFF!

The Game Plan
- Honor the owner in all you do
- We are blessed to be part of the team and we can never forget who signs our paycheck. Therefore, honor your owner with all you think, say and do (Lk 10:27)
- Get in shape, understanding injury is possible
- This speaks to the idea of coming to camp ready to play. Regardless of your status on the depth chart because you are one injury away from action. (1 Pet 3:15)
- Therefore, abide in Him and you will be ready (John 15:5)
- Build your team
- Our players are in shape, they have gone through difficult two a day workouts & nursed injury.
- So now we have to decide who should be on the roster. It will mean cutting some who are capable but just don’t fit into the game plan (1 Cor 15:33)
- Respect your coaches and teammates
- It is essential to be united as a team. No backstabbing, just respect. If we have a problem with another player or coach, we are to go to him first. (Mat 18:15-16)
- The Playbook
- We have used the same playbook for ever. It works (Heb 4:12)
- We need to commit it to memory
- Stick to the plan, it can’t fail!
- Understand your role - Strength and Weaknesses
- You may not be the star back but rather the grunt guy who is called on to grind out just one yard. Whatever role you play do it to the best of your ability so that the team can achieve its goal. All roles matter (Eph 2:10)
- Know your opponent
- Just like we have a playbook, so does our opponent. Since he played for us once he knows a lot of our plays, and knows we can’t lose, but he will continue to inflict injury and retire as many as possible before the zeros come on the clock. (1 Pet 5:8)
- Always be ready for each play
- Practice, practice, practice (Jam 1:22)
- It’s time to put all we have learned and trained for into action. It’s time to execute
- The Huddle
- This is a place of agreement & trust
- Communication is clear and concise
- Trust the play and the play caller
- Know your role and carry it out with passion and excellence
- Call an Audible if necessary
- If you see your opponent’s defense will adversely affect your play switch plays
- The play caller has trained for this and knows the playbook
- Hike the ball
- Time to get out of the boat and fix your eyes on the goal (Matt 14:29)
What others are saying...
- What does the scoreboard read when the zeros come on the clock?
- Was purpose achieved?
- What if any adjustments need to be made for our next game?
"Absolutely Fantastic!!!" - Len Deo, New Jersey Family Policy Council
"It is both a great honor and privilege to recommend the ministry of Lee Rouson and Joe Pellegrino of Legacy Minded Men. They are truly men of integrity, prophetic sensitivity and maturity. They have grasp of and ability to teach scripture and freely share their own personal experiences. All of the above describes their very relevant, new innovative and cutting edge approach to ministry which is beyond measure." - Rev. Anzetta Adams, Coordinating Chaplain, Bergen County Jail
"Thumbs up on Move the Chains!... a wonderful experience which is truly thought provoking. Joe and Lee are in their own league. They help answer the simple, yet complex question, "Who are you… really?" They passed the ball back and forth and ultimately gave us the ball. They made us realize that we are part of the team trying to reach the ultimate goal. Move the Chains is an awesome experience. Thanks Joe and Lee!" - Mike Santo, St. Ann's Church
"In the process of challenging our men, Joe and Lee came well prepared. Their interaction flowed naturally, drawing the men into their "conversation." The stories they shared were ones that every one of the men could relate to, and the biblical truths they highlighted touched on every aspect of a man's life. We heartily recommend the Move the Chains Workshop as a means to encourage, inspire and challenge men to be followers of Jesus Christ!" – Pastor David Bratton, Bethlehem Church
"Our Move the Chains Workshop had over 60 men in attendance. Lee's chant of "Go, Go, Get it, Get it" fired us up and laid down the ground work for our men's ministry to begin understanding how God desires us to become better husbands, fathers and men of honor!" – Pastor Eric Butler, True Vine Christian ChurchFor Booking Information or Questions?
