Men from New Life Church in Bluffton, SC made a road trip to Jacksonville, FL February 27, to attend the 2021 Iron Sharpens Iron one day equipping conference.
H.B. Charles gave the first keynote, asking the men to answer three questions: Who is God? What has God done? and Who are you to God?
Bishop Vaughn McLaughlin, founder and pastor of The Potter’s House, used the story of Gideon to hightlight how the smallest and weakest can do mighty things when called out and strengthened by God.
David Dusek of Rough Cut Men, used the structure of an Army fire team, 4 men united and watching out for each other, to demonstrate how a few men can do great things, but men isolated are easy targets.
The final keynote was given by Rex Tignor, who explained warrior as an acronym. Willing to engage, Aware and on guard, Ready with a plan, Reliable, Involve others, Overcome, and be Relentless. Other sessions addressed fathering, anger, coping with change, grandfathering, purity, and becoming men who know God.
These men hold a weekly men’s bible study each Thursday evening from 6:30-8:00 at New Life Bluffton. Any man seeking to grow or start his walk with Jesus Christ is welcome to attend. The men are also seeking opportunities to volunteer in the community.
New Life is located at 389 Fording Island Road in Bluffton, SC
