Meet the Founder
Dr. Darryl K. Webster, Senior Pastor of the Emmanuel Missionary Baptist Church in Indianapolis, IN
Dr. Webster is a passionate, relevant, biblically sound preacher and teacher. For twenty-three years he has served as the senior pastor of Emmanuel Missionary Baptist Church located in Indianapolis, IN.
Fourteen years ago Dr. Webster implemented the Men’s Spiritual BOOTCAMP, a ministry that seeks to disciple men and reconcile them to God, family and the community. Since its inception, BOOTCAMP has successfully ministered to hundreds of men at 5:45 a.m. and has now expanded to include a Marriage BOOTCAMP, and a Youth BOOTCAMP named CHAMPIONS.
BOOTCAMP has also expanded to minister to men across the nation. Satellite CAMPS have been set up in New Jersey, Ohio, Georgia, Ghana West Africa, Florida, Texas, Louisiana, Connecticut, Las Vegas, Alabama, Maryland, and Illinois with many more states to come.
In 2018 BOOTCAMP was presented at the National Baptist Convention of America International Mid-Winter Board.
After the first BOOTCAMP Dr. Webster authored a book entitled "Small Change, Great Impact". The book contains the experiences of the inaugural CAMP as well as practical principles to help men make lifestyle changes that will bring them into a closer and deeper relationship with God.
He has been married to his beautiful wife and ministry partner, Sibyl, for thirty-five years. They are the proud parents of children: Quincy, Kristin, Darrin and Kelli. They also have nine grandchildren: Jada, Jaida, Cristian, Cameron, Raeghan, Chandler, Denver, Aubrey, and Dylin.

Boot Camp Connect has taught me to be a better father, a better son, and a better husband. My goal today is to live a life acceptable to God. The steady influence of Boot Camp helps me in reaching that goal. I have been able to apply the principles learned in Boot Camp to my personal, professional, and spiritual life. My addiction to drugs and the subsequent recovery left me with a sense of passion, purpose, and a need to help others. I have awareness about myself which I can only attribute to God’s calling on my life. I am currently attending college to receive my Bachelor’s Degree in order to assist others with addiction issues. My skills as a Peer Mentor at Hoosier Veterans Assistance Foundation (HVAF) have been greatly enhanced when working with fellow veterans by the principles taught at Boot Camp. Boot Camp Is Not An Event, It’s A Lifestyle!
Boot Camp came into my life at a time when I needed major direction. I honestly did not know what being a man was supposed to look like. Boot Camp has taught me how to be a leader and how to win in my private, personal, public, and professional life. It has taught me that God has to be first in every facet of life. Lastly, it has given me a place where I can be transparent and express what I am going through as a man.

Since attending my 1st Bootcamp in October of 2006 I have grown tremendously, I'm a 14 year veteran of Bootcamp and it has not only grown me, it has been an essential part of my life, helping me to grow other brothers in and out of Bootcamp. The camaraderie of the camp has grown from 40 men in 2006 to countrywide in 2019. Not just myself but countless men share and testify how the camp saved our lives and has maintained our spiritual walk by the principles gained and developing a closer walk with the Lord. Bootcamp is not just a good model for men it should be the main model for men.
Small Change: Great Impact! was written to encourage a small change in the lives of men that, with the Holy Spirit’s help, will have a great impact. If we men would just make a small investment in our spiritual lives, God will give us a great dividend in return. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for your copy today!
