‘Men of Iron’ Releases New Men’s Retreat Resources

Men of Iron announces the release of a turn-key men’s retreat resource, EQUILIBRIUM. Designed to help Christian men restore balance in their lives – the core focus of the experience points to balance in five (5) areas of every believer’s life – Faith, Family, Friends, Fitness and Finance.

Co-authors Garret Barbush, President/CEO of Men of Iron, and original visionary for the series, Dave Zillig, finalized a turnkey package containing professionally recorded video sessions, journals for both Leader and Journeyman, as well as an additional five (5) months of resources to continue the journey beyond the retreat experience. “We’ve taken all the guesswork and pre-planning of devotions and meaningful study off the shoulders of a willing men’s leader and created all the resources needed for an exceptional retreat where each man comes out with a plan for their lives.” states Barbush.

Men’s ministry and Christian business leaders, alike, are applauding the EQUILIBRIUM resources as their go-to kit to kickstart 1-to-1 mentorships after experiencing such a dynamic retreat. Zillig reflects on his personal experiences leading to the original vision for EQUILIBRIUM, as he states, “In my mid-twenties as a newlywed, and due to my lack of a plan and balance, I was struggling. My professional life was mediocre, I wasn’t patient or supportive as a father… it was a tough season.” Restoring balance to Zillig’s life was the catalyst for this resource as he committed to leading this demographic of men through mentorship. Hundreds of men’s lives have been impacted due to the work of Zillig and the collaborative partnership with Men of Iron.

EQUILIBRIUM packages can be purchased at menofiron.org/shop beginning September 14th, 2020. Each kit will be packaged in a Men of Iron bag with (1) Leaders Guide, (6) Journeyman Guides and (1) USB drive containing all video sessions and Pro-Tips for the Leader.

Men of Iron is a Christian 501(c)(3) nonprofit based in Manheim, PA with the tireless pursuit of changing a culture, one man at a time.
