IronMen Conference Vision Statement: Equipping MEN to UNDERSTAND and DEFEND their FAITH with LOVE and GRACE.

His next book, The Case for Heaven, rebuts in mid-September, 2021, and is currently available for pre-order.

The IronMen of God Men’s Conference is a one-day conference that partners with the local church and national Christian thought leaders to provide training and resources to men in the Central Florida area who desire to deepen their faith and live with clear purpose.
Founded in 1996 by Brian Thatcher and a group of five CEOs and business owners, Convene was created to meet a vital need. God gave Brian and his partners a passion for successful business leaders that were isolated and lacked the tools, support and relationships they needed to build profitable businesses. At the same time, they helped them integrate their faith with their work to make a great Kingdom impact.
Since then, they’ve been seeking God’s wisdom and consistently innovating to best accomplish their mission, vision and values.

LEARN | I Peter 3:15
The IronMen of God Men’s Conference seeks to equip men by diving deep into their faith and helping them be prepared for life’s inevitable challenges; as leaders at home, the workplace and within their biblical communities. Men who attend this conference will be provided the tools and skills needed to become Kingdom focused.
LOVE | John 13:35
Jesus said we should be known by our love.
“By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”
We were designed for biblical community which is essential to our growth and needed for fighting spiritual battles. The IronMen of God Men’s Conference will bring life-giving inspiration and camaraderie to men who often work alone, feel isolated and are confronted by various forms of distress. We encourage groups of men to register together while building a stronger bond and deeper friendships and unity with the body of Christ. By developing a “band of brothers” our mission to love God and love others will be enhanced.
LEAD | I Timothy 3:1-13
God has strategically placed men at the forefront to lead. We encourage and equip men to lead at home, at work, and in the church. No matter where you are in your spiritual leadership journey this conference is for you to rise up and into your leadership role.
