Crawford Loritts is Senior Pastor of Fellowship Bible Church in Roswell, GA. He is a well known speaker as well as author and host of Living a Legacy, a daily radio program heard nationwide. He has previously served as a National Director for Campus Crusade for Christ and as a speaker at PK conferences.

Dr. Gary Rosberg is an award winning author, popular radio host, and international conference speaker. Together with his wife, Barb, he founded the international ministry of America's Family Coaches. His ministry addresses the needs of today's marriages with wonderful insight and biblical truth. Gary has co-authored over a dozen well known marriage and family resources, including 2 DVD series. He has 25 years of experience conducting marriage conferences nationally and internationally as well.


Each year we are blessed with men who come to speak from the main session platform and the 16 different seminars.


The heart of these conferences is EQUIPPING. We bring men to speak that can speak from a masculine perspective and in many cases can speak to men in ways that they either don't hear on Sundays or in some cases can't hear on Sundays because of the mixed audiences.


We also actively promote that we want men to bring their young sons or grandsons with them ages 13 and up. We have got to walk with these young men and allow them to experience Biblical Manhood in the context of these conferences, so that they see and understand how and what godly men struggle with and that God is providing resources that complement God's Word and using the Bible to answer these tough questions.


The vision is that groups of men from their local church would gather together and attend. This allows many men to experience the vast resources and help assemble ideas and connections that they can take back into their local church AFTER the conference to continue building and equipping other men INSIDE their churches.


So the heart of these Iron Sharpens Iron Conferences is equipping, the vision is men coming from their local church to take back the resources into their local church, and the value after the conference is over is I am not going anywhere. Relevant Practical Ministry for Men (Tom Cheshire) is remaining in your local area to continue to be a PERSONAL resource to you and the men in your local church. To be the encourager and connector to continue equipping your men with resources and material I can provide. Those services range from helping you develop or revamp a disciple making ministry to men in your local church, to speaking at your ministry meetings, or leading one-day seminars or weekly manhood studies.
