"Battle For Godly Masculinity: Dads on the Frontlines"

We are living in days of great deception and confusion. Godly men are under attack. Godly fatherhood and families are under attack and our children are prey for the enemy. We need to fight to reclaim Godly masculinity and we need active dads to stand on the frontlines of this cultural and spiritual battle.

  • “Be on the alert. Stand firm in the faith. Be men of courage. Be strong. Do everything in love."  1 Corinthians 16:13 Berean
  • “The righteous man walks with his integrity; his children are blessed after him." Proverbs 20: 7 NKJV

Shahram, a Christian pastor and former Muslim, was born in Iran, came to America to escape an oppressive Islamic regime and had a powerful conversion to Christianity in 1999.
