“I’m a local pastor, and Iron Sharpen Iron’s vision for man-to-man ministry motivated me to pursue it inside the local church! Here is a true partnership of the local church and the para-church that has awesome potential to transform culture. After my first conference I said, “At last, here is something I can bring home to my flock.” We did, and a men’s ministry is slowly taking shape. Manhood is on the rise. Thanks, ISI!” ~ Pastor Brad Johnston
