It's all about value!

In farming, you need three things: efficiency, perseverance and a positive attitude. Those are the same qualities you need to succeed in home building.

Bryan Zeamer and the Men of Iron

Men of IronIn today’s society, it is more important than ever to raise strong men with strong faith. Founded in 2006, Men of Iron is a community with that exact intention. Founder Bryan Zeamer established this program in his church to change lives, save marriages and fix broken relationships. I love what he is doing through the Men of Iron program.

The mission of Men of Iron is based on a verse from Proverbs 27:17, “As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.” This verse is quite profound and such a great verse for the origin of a community of men of God. Bryan experienced many different moments from God that shaped his path towards creating this ministry. From sports and business coaches, to consultant and peer accountability groups and mentors, each person set in his path gave him the vision and brightened the path towards creating Men of Iron.

In today’s society, men have many challenges to face about what kind of man they should be and want to be. Men of Iron helps men grow toward a biblical standard of manhood. By partnering with churches, Men of Iron provides accountability, balance and spiritual growth to a man’s life through mentor ministry. Motivated by the local church, Bryan pushes Men of Iron forward with the purpose of leading as given to men by God. A combination of consultation and accountability, training, mentors, directors, protégés, resources and curriculum all go into the Men of Iron program within the church to achieve the mission.

As we lean into the challenges around us, men need to ban together and help one another become sharper and stronger men of faith to strengthen ourselves and our families.
