TEXT TO SHARE: I love these devos from Vince sent right to my inbox each day. They inspire me each morning.
ALL IN AMBASSADOR: Tobey Main
Thanks for taking a few minutes to allow me to introduce myself and the Main Family. My name is Tobey Main and our family lives in Odessa, Fl., which is about 20 minutes north of Tampa. My wife and I are middle-school sweethearts and began dating in December 1989. We just celebrated our 24th wedding anniversary! We have 4 children, Evan and Madison (16 y/o twins) Malia (12) & Emerson (10).
My faith journey began when I was 7 y/o accepting Jesus as my Lord and Savior. I have spent the better part of my 46 years living a life full of filling up on things that don't matter, however within the past 3 I have felt a closer relationship with the Lord than ever before. Because of my selfish nature, my marriage began spiraling out of control, but through God's Grace and those trials, we have grown closer than ever before. Our desire to draw closer to the Lord has strengthened our marriage far beyond what we experienced early on in our relationship.
I served 25 years in the corporate world, prior to stepping out in obedience to the place I believe God had intended for me to be all along. A little over a year ago, by His abundant grace and blessing, I obediently stepped into the world of self-employed business owners. God has opened so many doors of opportunity allowing me to get beyond the threshold of front doors in the community where we live, serving families and businesses with cleaning services. Relationships have been blossoming ever since, and The Light of Christ is shining every day in the service we provide to our faithful customers.
I get my motivation every day, by asking one simple question, "Jesus, will you please show me where you are working today, and allow me to enter into that work with you"? This very question is what gives me the energy I need each day. Remembering He is working all around us, and lavishes us with a Love beyond explanation. This is the power of His Spirit in me that drives a Love for our employees, customers, and the community we serve.
Live All-In for Him who Lived All-In for Us!
Thanks for sharing Tobey. May God continue to bless you and your family
I love every word of this, Tobey and I could hear your voice as I was reading it. You are a true Christian brother that I am so blessed to have come to know. You have demonstrated to me that being a Christian doesn’t have to be complicated, it’s simple obedience and surrendering to God’s will. Thank you for being a great role-model for us “younger” Christians.
Thanks for sharing Tobey. May the blessings and favor of God rest upon your lives as you seek Him and His Kingdom first! Your family is beautiful. Congratulations on 24 years of marriage! What an Awesone God we have and serve!
Jake, what a beautiful story of God’s faithfulness and hope for each of us to turn to or return to Him. It gives me greater hope for my son and his story (relationship) with our Lord.
Tom, your passion inspires me to form a vision – help other men grow to be the men God wants us to be, for all the years left for me on this earth. God has blessed us with great material in His word, and Vince’s instructive insight, application and support.
Paul, thank you for the reminder to sprinkle our conversations with words that point to the love of Christ!
Love you Brother, and inspired by your testimony. Be a light and keep living All In!
Thanks Nick for the nudge. A retreat is on my bucket list for 2022!
Keep going strong Nick – being a catalyst to bring men together!
Austin, your faith inspires me! Way to go bro!
We have a God that blesses in mysterious ways! A great testimony Austin, thanks for sharing boldly!
That’s absolutely awesome, and I love your transparency bro!
Progress over perfection.
And Love God Today’s work.
Awesome! Lie #2 was hard for me. I wrapped identity and provision together. Glad to see you are much wiser than I was at your age.
Well said, Austin. Proud of your decision to pursue Truth in your daily life. These are wonderful takeaways and excellent advice. Thank you for sharing your journey!
Good words Austin,Thanks!
That a way Austin! Praise the Lord for your wise words and path of Christ that you are following.
Thank you for sharing Austin! You’re are so right we are not perfect in our faith journey but have a amazing God who forgives us each day so we can learn and start over!
Way to go Austin! To me, a real man is one that seeks God and His ways first over his own and seeks to grow each day. That’s what I see you doing, way to go bro’ !!!
C’mon Austin! We only live once so make it count for God’s glory! Thanks for this reminder!
Great message RV! You are an awesome man with the Lord brother!
Thanks for sharing RV! We’re all glad you are here and able to attend online when you can. You are right, we need to find other Christian men to help hold us accountable and help us to be better men. Keep coming back brother!
Thanks RV for being a part of our Monday morning group! Your faith journey described vis the Ambassadors page is inspiring for both encouraging men to mentor and be mentored. Praise God for your message!
Great to learn more about. Look forward to hearing even more!!!
Love hearing your calm and thoughtful heart every week! Your practical and patient demeanor is such a rare trait that God is using (and will continue to use) for His Kingdom!
Thanks Collin! It’s good to hang out and learn from you and everyone else!
Thank you for sharing Shaun! Would love to sharpen that iron with you or any of my brothers! 605 951-3812 or [email protected]
Hey Chris, great to learn more about you! Praying you are able to be all in for Him… with no shortage of confidence, and give all praise to Him.
Hi guys! I just found out that the Ambassador section existed and I heard I may next man up! What a great platform Vince has built for us all. I don’t do facebook or social media in general so I may not be commenting as much as others but it’s always great to say hi Monday mornings and hopefully get connected with other Brothers in Christ. I need help in my prayer life as maybe it’s satan preventing me from actually praying for everyone I know and don’t know that need prayer. I always feel like others are praying for them and mine won’t make a difference. I need God to get my mind right on that. It bugs me when I look in the mirror and have heard that I am an answer to others prayers in my coming to Christ. I get tons of people from Church saying they’ve been praying for me for years. I need to put that effort forth for others as alot of the Bible miracles are surrounded by problems and prayer.
Amazing story Cory. God is good. It is so awesome to see what God does to get his men back.
Cory thank you for sharing your testimony. God is so powerful when we finally surrender. Blessings Brother
So glad to call you friend Cory – my brother in Christ!
Glad to hear another man willing to enter the battle to inspire and equip men. The only means of turning this world around is turning men around.
Amen Brother! That best is yet to come!
That’s an awesome testimony brother, and a great picture 🙂
Thanks Collin, really appreciate the feedback. Good to know someone actually read it.
Leo, thank you for sharing. Go is really moving in your life and in the life of the other men who are in these mentoring sessions. Warrior On !
Thanks for sharing your story Will! I have learned so much from all of my Ambassador brothers!
Hey Will, thanks for sharing your story! Praying that God bless you and your family beyond expectations.
Thanks for sharing your story so candidly. I think we can all relate to being broken and seeking forgiveness and redemption. I’m glad to see you and your family were able to overcome. Thank you for all you’ve done to help Vince do what he does!
Thanks Cory for your very honest and personal sharing, it really hits home for me this morning. Two years ago I contracted Polymyalgia Rheumatica, a very painful illness. I do not like taking drugs, so instead turned to alcohol to lessen the pain. Now, I am almost over the PMR illness, but the alcohol has a strong grip on me. I have quit drinking so many times, but yesterday fell back once again. I am a closet alcoholic trying to keep it a secret, but my wife is noticing more and more. I am trying to get an accountability partner, but have yet to find the right person. Your testimony gives me new hope, thank you!
I appreciate that Sam. I wish I had an easy answer, but nothing is easy with any addiction. I wasn’t in the closet about drinking as much as I was in the closet about how much. It usually takes an absolute rock bottom to seek help. I hope you never see one. All I can say is get it out there. Not talking about it simply drives the problem down further which just makes the shame worse and then we have one more reason to drink. Like we need one. 😉
A lot of the AA meetings have gone to zoom so you can check those out basically anonymously to see if it’s an option. Stepping up and letting people know like you just did is a good start! Keep it up and let me know what I could do to help.
Thank you to both Pat and Michael! Both very inspirational. I’d hate to be the guy following you two up!
There’s a lot of life wisdom shared from you guys that has helped me out in various ways. I’m challenged and also motivated deep down to be a better man – simply by reading and relating to your journeys. Thank you men for sharing and know it’s connecting with others thru relatable situations. Something to think about as you post…there’s a good chance your influencing men whom you might never meet in your lifetime! Wow, what an impact you can make huh?
Thanks for sharing your story Pat. It’s an all to familiar theme that I’ve heard too may times. Thanks be to our Father for never giving up on us and providing a way out. Every set back is a set up for something better.
I look forward to talking with other men being led by God. Iron sharpens iron as it says in Proverbs. We should do an Ambassador virtual meeting.
There is evidently a lot to identify about this. I consider you made some good points in features also.
Hey Vince. Great new web page and a chance for all guys who are All In to connect and share. Our group just went through Called to Act and it was such an incredible series. Each lesson built on each other and allowed you to really dive in. It brought our group closer together and really allowed each of us to get more involved in each others lives. While we were not able to go All In as COVID prevents us from getting together, it did allow the building blocks for when we can. We were also blessed with a ZOOM visit by Vince in our last week. Question has anyone used the Ephesians or currently using the new James series in their groups? Would love to have any questions or discussions that you have used in these series. Personally, I am starting the 20 Lessons to Build a Man’s Fitness tomorrow. Be blessed. Gregory Kuhn, Victoria, BC, Canada ([email protected]) – yep retired Royal Canadian Navy!
I have been working on this new link just for you. It’s still in process. No one has used the Ephesians study yet since I am still working out the kinks. But this is what I have so far!
Happy New Year! I’m grateful for this chance to be an ambassador. Quick question… is there a way to get a listing of the other ambassadors (so we can connect as we continue going All In)?
Eric, could we figure out a way to make this possible for Chad and other men?
I agree Chad, that would be great!
Love the new webpage Vince! Can’t wait to continue to share your ministry with other men and continue my faith journey with you and the rest of my brothers! All In all the time!
this is indeed a great job of putting all the relevant shareables in one spot! I’m looking forward to giving men what resources they need to grow their relationships with God and others. I too, am exited to continue along my journey with the Lord and others! Happy 2021!
Thanks, Danny Leo! 👊🏼👊🏼👊🏼👊🏼
Thanks Vince for the new webpage as this should help the guys know key info to share with others! Tell Faith she did a fantastic job and look forward to updating and sharing each week!
Guys leave notes here! 👊🏼👊🏼👊🏼
