We Believe Men Become Men In The Presence Of Men
How did God design you to live as a man?
Today, men are often confused about their roles as fathers, husbands, brothers, and sons. So much experimentation and change in society's view of gender roles has led most men to follow a trial and error approach to everything masculine. Both men and woman were created in the image of God and are completely equal as each display the glory of Godís image with equal brilliance according to the first chapter of Genesis. This is consistent with Godís intention that both sexes should rule, but the manner in how they rule is what is seemingly lost in recent generations.
Are you living a life defined by a clear vision of manhood, or are you merely blending into the crowd?
God's men do not blend in with the world. Where it is true we need to reamin mindful to the culture we seek to reach, we need to stand apart as men of God: "If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you." John 15:19.
Why attend an Iron Sharpens Iron Equipping Event?
We believe the best possible way to learn how to live as the man God designed you to be, is in the company of other men seeking the same for their lives. Through this event, men discover the needed tools to seek God's will for their life as husbands, fathers, sons and brothers.
Attending the Iron Sharpens Iron Equipping Conference with men of your church, investing in each other and providing what every man needs: Relationships with Godly men. Men Come together and are lifted up in each of the 16 equipping seminars, addressing the struggles and temptations that continually keep us from living in the freedom of Jesus Christ.
The Iron Sharpens Iron equipping seminars for men include:
EMERGING MEN (age 13-19)
These are the men who are aggressivley moving from living as a boy to living as a man. Give them room to grow.
PIONEERING MEN (age 20-29)
These are the men who are carving out their place in life. What to do? Where to do it? Who to do it with?
FULL THROTTLE MEN (age 30-55)
These are the men who are the producers and providers. They are warriors and are fully engaged in everything they do.
These are the men who have “been there” and “done that” - and have lived to tell about it. They are a living legacy.
What benefit is there to attending with other men from your church?
Your men will benefit from having "strength in numbers". Predators look for the easy targets, those who wander from the crowd because it makes for an easy meal. The enemy applies the same principle to men who do not allow themselves to be continually 'sharpened' by other men (Proverbs 27:17). In addition, God encourages us to 'work' together to have a good return on our labor. He encourages that if one should fall, the other is there to lift up his friend. "And if one can overpower him who is alone, two can resist him. A cord of three strands is not quickly torn apart."
