AUSTIN, TX DECEMBER 2-4 2022 | inaugural


Get Aligned With What Matters Most - Family.

The future of humanity depends on men showing up for their families

As leaders in our spaces, we have a responsibility to ourselves, our families, to our community and also to the world. When hundreds of men pour into their spouse and kids, that impacts the communities, and a collection of flourishing communities sustaining harmonic life on earth for all mankind.  So get to Austin for this Inaugural Front Row Dads LIVE Year-End Summit and join over 100+ fathers for a 3 DAY experience to evolve as a father.

Build Relationships

Embrace bold action, amplify your strengths, defy odds and courageously step into every challenge in the company of epic fathers.

Gain Resources

Walk among men who show up in a relentless pursuit for learning opportunities and growth for a collective win and sharing of resources.

Deliver Results

We won’t add to your already full plate, walk away with the little hinges that swing the BIG doors, impacting generations to come.

It's Simple.
We Are Better,

The Front Row Dads Live Summit is bringing fathers together from around the world to increase awareness, build brotherhood and ignite action to be better fathers and husbands.

Hal's Mission

Hal's Mission

My mission is to elevate the consciousness of humanity by waking people up to their full potential and leading by example. For me, that starts at home as a father and husband, and I strive to ensure that those roles remain my highest priority.

New & Familiar Faces

If you’re new to this environment, prepare to make incredible, life-long accountability partners. If you’ve been following Front Row Dads already, are coming with your “band” or are bringing a friend, get ready to amplify your existing connections!

“When I look back on my life, I believe I’ll be most proud of the ‘work’ I’ve done within my family. Front Row Dads has unquestionably helped me be a better father and husband, which in the end will help every generation of Elrods for years to come.”
“The level of connection formed at Front Row Dad events is quite frankly, INSANE. I’ve yet to attend and event and NOT come out with 10 times what I was hoping for.”
“Awesome men learning together to be their best selves for their family, bringing together top-tier tools, techniques, conversations and friendships.”
