WHO ARE WE
As iron sharpens iron, So one man sharpens [and influences] another [through discussion]
Called and chosen men of God, whose greatest desire is to sharpen men for their services to our Lord. We dwell in a non-judgment zone, where flaws, character deficits are openly discussed among ourselves.
Confidentiality is an absolute must as we grow together towards one goal: to be the best men we can be. We lay aside all titles that have been earned or endowed and come as one body under the umbrella of God’s grace, not perfect but daily being “perfected” in Him.
SharpMen is comprised of men from different ministries, not about one church, but focused on the work of the church.
2nd Peter 1:10, “we must make our calling and election sure.” We come from different places, have different experiences but we all are in need of some aspect of healing.
Galatians 6:1, “If a man is overtaken in a fault, ye which is spiritual restore” (restore is the word!).
Proverbs 18:1, “A man who isolates himself seeks his own desires. He rages against all sound judgment.”
Transparency, honesty, accountability, and compassion are the keys we embrace to ensure character development, spiritual maturity, and comradery.
Guided by God and the prayers of those involved, we strive to be effective and instrumental in the personal growth and spiritual development of God’s SharpMen.
Unity is not the death of identity, but Sharpmen’s identity is in Christ and Him alone. Our unity provides greater resources for God’s kingdom.
Weekly, monthly and/or ad hoc sessions will be geared towards growing the total man and therefore will include, but not limited to, perspectives from different vantage points such as relationships (singleness & marriage), integrity, sexual issues, engaging the opposite sex, growing up spiritually, seeds for the next generation, witnessing God’s way.
Our mandate is to be progressive, proactive, purposeful in our pursuit of godliness. We understand that our treasures are in earthen vessels, however, with a dependence on God and our commitment to accountability, we sharpen each other.
