About - Rebuilding the Man




BOND is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization founded in 1990 by Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, dedicated to “Rebuilding the Family by Rebuilding the Man.”

Going on 27 years, we offer counseling for people dealing with all issues, helping them to overcome anger through forgiveness. We hold a weekly Sunday Service, monthly Men’s Forum, and annual Conference on Fatherhood and Men. Over the years, we’ve offered Women’s Forums, Town Hall Meetings, a Home for Young Men, After School Character Building, BOND Leadership Academy (a private school, grades 1-12), Mentorship and Entrepreneur Programs. BOND Studios produces Jesse Lee Peterson’s radio show and The Fallen State TV talk show.

We never accept government funding. Our services and events build men, families, and our society. Contributions to BOND are tax-deductible to the amount allowable by law.


Jesse Lee Peterson loves truth. He grew up without his father on a plantation near Tuskegee, Alabama, in the Jim Crow era, and participated in the “civil rights” movement. He moved to Los Angeles, and 28 years ago underwent a spiritual transformation. He founded BOND, a nationally-known nonprofit dedicated to “Rebuilding the Family by Rebuilding the Man.”

Going on 27 years at BOND, Jesse counsels people, speaks around the country at events, schools, correctional facilities, and churches. He leads BOND Sunday Service, Men’s Forums, and Conference on Fatherhood & Men. He’s a radio & TV talk show host, speaker, media commentator (Fox News, CNN, etc.), and author. Visit his website.
