Dowling Family Ministries, Inc. is born!

     When the Lord told us to "get grounded", being an independent 501c3 ministry was part of the grounding; as a result, Dowling Family Ministries, Inc. was born! We are still in the process of finalizing the 501c3 paperwork, but we are up and running!

Our vision is pretty simple:

     Our family, Bubba, Heather, Anna, Nathan, Luke, Esther, Miriam, and Johanna is called to love God’s people by being a bridge between the churched and unchurched, rich and poor, black and white, etc. We are specifically called to:
1. Call fathers into the love of The Father
2. Champion mothers and caregivers
3. Call forth this generation into the fullness of Christ
4. Stand for justice for those who are unjustly treated
5. Love as Christ loved.

Our response:

     In response to the call of the Lord we commit to love when, where and how the Lord leads; whether in the US or abroad, in state or out, in the church or on the streets.

The nuts & bolts of it all:
     Here is a quick overview of what has happened since our ministry was officially launched in April...

*"Strong Dad's" program in Kansas
     Bubba, and the family when able, traveled over 20,000 miles in 3 months all over the state of Kansas teaching and encouraging dads to be STRONG DADS through an initiative with the Department of Children and Families. Check it out at

*Keynote Speaker
     Bubba was the Keynote Speaker at the Father and Family Summit in Wichita in June. Amazing time!

*Strongman Ministry
     Bubba has traveled to four locations to serve other ministries as well as independently doing strongman evangelism.

*Real Men
     Bubba has started meeting with 6 men weekly for "hanging out".

*Disciple Training Gear
     Our small business is going well. We are receiving orders several times weekly and are currently looking for a web designer to update out site!

*Bubba's BOOK!
     Bubba is finishing up his book! It should be out and available for purchase in November!!!

*Speaking Engagements
     After the exposure and making connections with the Strong Dad's program in Kansas, Bubba has been booked nation wide to just speak! Bubba's website is under construction. Check back soon at

*Mama's Cup of Tea
     Heather has started meeting with mama's of young children weekly to share life and for encouragement.

     As you can see, we are quite busy. We feel like we are trying to "just keep up" with what the Lord's doing!!!

     We are excited about being part of His plan and would love to partner with you in ministry as well. Let us know if we can serve you in any way!
