Bud Lamb reaches men across the western United States, with a ministry center in Santa Cruz County, California.
Many men are disappointed with life, stalled in their faith, and stuck with bad habits that affect their marriage and family life. Some drift along in a dissatisfied state, while others isolate themselves and are prone to act out in unhealthy ways. Without a compelling vision for their lives, these men opt for quick fixes, always asking the question “What’s next?”
With a noble vision for life and a compass set on Jesus Christ, these men can renew their spiritual passion and restore their marriages. The greatest need is for mentors to come alongside them and show them healthy ways to get back on track.
After seeing the needs among men in his community, Bud began reaching out to pastors, businessmen, aspiring leaders, and husbands as a Christian mentor. “My purpose is to expand Jesus’ influence through my relationships with these men, encouraging spiritual leadership in this generation and the next.”
Bud works with men one-on-one, in groups, through retreats, and through high adventure outdoor events. During their time together, Bud helps men discover or renew their spiritual passion, envisioning a plan for their lives to help them overcome current circumstances and move forward in positive ways. His goal is to help them become better men, husbands, spiritual leaders, and influencers of their culture.
Bud has served as InFaith field staff since May 2019.
He has served as a lay pastor in small churches and an ordained pastor in larger churches for the past fifteen years. “My number one passion is my relationship with God—it towers above everything else in my life,” Bud writes.
Bud is married to the love of his life, Lea Ann. They have two children, a son-in-law, and a granddaughter. Bud loves spending time outdoors—his hobbies include trail running, kayaking, hiking, and backpacking.
