A Radical New Vision
Iron Men’s Ministry started in 2005 with a radical new vision to reach men.
Iron Men’s Ministry’s vision is to proclaim Christ to all men, so we might present every man complete in Christ. Iron Men’s Ministry believes we have received a call from Christ to reach men. We recognize that less than 10% of churches in the US have any kind of men’s ministry. The condition of the average man in the US is very challenging: with isolation, generational brokenness, sin, pornography, divorce and materialism – among other things. These conditions have created stress and confusion for men. Furthermore, gender identity has been under attack at levels we have never seen before. Iron Men’s Ministry believes that: strong, relevant, man friendly evangelistic events, can reach men seeking purpose and legacy. Iron Men’s Ministry also believes we exist to help build and strengthen men, marriages, and their families. We believe Christs’ calling is for strengthening local churches through men’s ministries, creating relevant places for men to build significant friendships and be discipled in the word of God. Iron Men’s Ministry is answering the call of God to “Lift up the name of Jesus and I will draw all men to myself”. We see that men are desperate to come to know their God created purpose, and be equipped to lead their families into healthy spiritual legacy.
Iron Men’s Ministry sees Christ Church as the hope of the world! We endeavor to come alongside local churches and build outreach bridges where men can come to know Christ and come into local churches. Iron Men’s Ministry is not a church and is committed to not try and become the church we see our role in Ephesians 4 to ‘equip the Stints to do the work of the Gospel” in regards to reaching and discipling men.
Challenging every man to know Christ and to lead others to Christ
We create evangelistic events for the Lord to move in the hearts of men in mighty ways. We encourage men to build authentic friendships, resulting in strengthening marriages, families, and churches. We believe change starts with spiritual men, Iron Men of integrity.
Present Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord to everyman
He is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ.
In bringing many sons and daughters to glory, it was fitting that God, for whom and through whom everything exists, should make the pioneer of their salvation perfect through what he suffered.
Integrity, Transparency, Authenticity, Service, Love, Purity
OUR ULTIMATE GOAL
Reach teach and equip men to know and live into their God given destiny
Iron is one of the strongest metals used in our world today. It is used to build foundations, houses, and skyscrapers. In our culture, the word “iron” is used simultaneously with strength.
I believe this generation has seen a lack of iron.
A lack of strength…in men.
Men have been called to be Ironmen. Ironmen find their strength in the Lord.
Our mission is to create space for the Lord to move in mighty ways within our marriages, our families, our companies, our churches, our communities, our nation and our world. We believe that it can start with the men- the strong men…Iron Men.
My name is David White, I am a public school teacher and pastor. I am a husband, father, brother, and son. I am a man who is pursuing the Lord and some iron in this fickle world. I have a passion for the men of this generation because I believe that’s where it starts.
Why Iron Men?
Our God’s love is renewed every morning. Iron Men Ministry is in that exhilarating season of renewal, watching God bring us together once again, fresh and anew to do HIS good will. Join us as we stand and pray, hands upon shoulders, ministering to the Father’s sons. This new season of Iron Men ministries is devoted to being used by God to usher in his lost and prodigal sons. Our Father will lead us, His sons into the relationship He has always desired. We are sons of the King, dwelling in the heavenly realms, joint heirs with Christ, priests standing in the gap with arms open wide and hands lifted high.
Reunite Iron Men, and invite the Holy Spirt to kindle His fire deep down in your souls, let us once again walk arm in arm in the good will of our Father, for His glory. We are His hands and feet, and they will, know Him by our love. Remember the great things the Lord has done. Oh remember how the drums beat on the high mountain ushering so, so many sons to the glorious foot of the cross, to meet our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ.
