Uncultured Dad is a space for all Christians, but dads and men specifically. It’s a resources page filled with blogs, bible studies, and books by A.J. Reilly, a United States Army Reserve Chaplain. Some of the resources are free and we encourage you to use them to grow in your faith and love of Jesus Christ. Other resources are for sale, to help support the mission of Uncultured Dad, which is to provide an uncultured space for faith, family, and fatherhood.

Adam has carved out a career as a master planner and designer architect. He married his high-school sweetheart who he met on a youth group canoe trip.
He and his wife Lori are still secretly teenagers trapped in 45-ish-year-old bodies finding themselves shocked that they are responsible for other humans.
Adam is the kind of guy who can talk about 80’s BMX bikes, war movies, artificial intelligence, and deep biblical concepts in a 15-minute chat. He teaches a young families class at Beacon Baptist Church and runs the church’s IT department.
