Forge Men's Ministry
FORGE is a ministry for men of all ages and backgrounds who are being shaped by God into the men they want to be, so they can live the life they were born to live.
Proverbs 26:17 As iron sharpens iron, so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend.
Like iron sharpening iron, Forge Men's Ministry is all about developing strong men in the Lord.
Pastor Rick wants to build an army of men (Minutemen); ready at all times to go to battle for each other, for their family, and for the Lord.
Definition of forge - make or shape (a metal object) by heating it in a fire or furnace and hammering it in order to create (something) strong and enduring.The forging process improves some of the properties of metal, such as impact toughness, fatigue strength, and tensile ductility.
Impact Toughness is the ability of a material to absorb energy without fracturing. It is also defined as a material's resistance to fracture when stressed.
Tensile Ductility is a measure of a metal's ability to withstand tensile stress—any force that pulls the two ends of a material away from each other. ... The term "ductile" literally means that a metal substance is capable of being stretched out into a thin wire, and it does not become weaker or become brittle in the process.
Fatigue Strength is the highest stress that a material can withstand for a given number of cycles without breaking — called also endurance strength.
We have all seen steel used to sharpen a blade, to give it an edge, and make it fit to do its work.
Hebrews 10:24 Let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works.
Isaiah 35:3-4 Strengthen the weak hands and make firm the feeble knees. Say to those who are fearful hearted, be strong and do not fear.
