The idea for Anvil Ministries started in early 2013. Over the years, Anvil Ministries has evolved into what it is today. By working directly with many men, serveral churches, pastors and men’s ministry leaders Anvil has become a sharp and effective tool to reach men. Anvil Ministries keeps a keen eye on the future. We are always seeking for areas improvement, innovation and excellence to empower men to find their strength.
The main goal of Anvil Ministries is to help men find their strength. As Christians we call that discipleship. Our approach to discipleship is a new and unique way aimed straight at the heart of men. This process involves: discovery, challenge, recovery, healing, restoration, support, encouragement, empowerment and more. The real strength of a man, ultimately is Christ. Getting men to not just understand that, but also live that out is our goal.
Anvil is achieving this through 4 foundational pillars:
Anvil Ministries exists to help fill in the gaps in many churches today. There’s nothing wrong with a Men’s Bible Study, Accountability Group, or Pancake Breakfast of course. If your church has a men’s ministry you are probably familiar with these groups. What we at Anvil have found is that similar groups alone are usually not meeting the needs of men. There are a vast number of men that don’t show up to such meetings – especially younger men. There is more that we can offer men – a lot more.
Most Christians believe that men are the spiritual leaders of their home and church. So let’s help them do just that. Many men today have a difficult time fully engaging as a man in their home, church and community. Their strength and power are often never used, or utilized in a positive way. This is one of the many areas where Anvil can help. With the recent generations of fatherless homes men are rarely shown how to be a man; much less, a powerful, and effective Godly man.
“Masculinity is bestowed. A boy learns who he is and what he’s got from a man, or the company of men. He cannot learn it any other place.” – J. Eldridge
Anvil Ministries is that place. It is a community of men, walking beside each other in the journey of life and masculinity. Anvil is a place to discover the man you are – the man God intended you to be. Now is the time to take practical steps daily, to be that man. Discover the man you are; full of Integrity, Power, Strength, Kindness and real Love. Release and restore the man inside who is dangerous, and good. Grow to be a man that is well respected, because he has earned it. Become the kind of man you’d want to have your back. Through God, Anvil Ministries is helping men recover those qualities.
