As iron sharpens iron
so one man sharpens another.

Proverbs 27.17

At WACC it is our intention to help men become followers of Jesus whose heart has been changed and molded by God through the work of the Spirit as He sharpens us by the Word of God and other men who come alongside of us in our journeys. When God has a man’s heart he will become not only a better man, but husband, dad, son, citizen, neighbor, employee and grandfather. He will be a man who continues to grow, serves his church, community and family, and gives of his time and money to God. As a man you are encouraged to be a part of the various avenues of growth and service opportunities that WACC offers. We also have “men only” opportunities for you to be a part of. As men you know that a tool that has been sharpened is more effective.

As iron sharpens

“As Iron Sharpens” are short monthly videos designed to sharpen the men of WACC. Sharp tools are more effective for the task at hand. So, also, are sharpened men. May these make your dull edges just a little sharper.

Man up
IronMen Retreat 2023

Several times in my life I have been told to MAN UP. Sometimes on the basketball court, other times when facing situations that seemed difficult. Is it enough just to MAN UP? What does it mean? Does God call us to take steps and move up to other levels that might challenge us, and at the same time would change not only us, but our families, and even our churches into effective and sharpened tools. The irony with Jesus is that when we MAN UP it is never entirely on our own. Help is always provided whatever the call.
The latest addition to our annual IronMen Getaways is MAN UP. This year’s gathering will be at Riverbend Retreat Center in Glen Rose, TX. It will be April 28-30 (Friday-Sunday) 2023. Michael Defazio will bring the messages while Isaac Schade will lead us in Worship. Both Michael and Isaac have been a part of the Ozark Christian College staff for several years. Invite a friend, Dad, son, brother to join you. The cost this year is $140 ($160 after March 12th) if you sign up during the early bird month.


IronMen Breakfasts

Join us monthly for our IronMen breakfast , a morning with guys - having breakfast and digging in to the Word of God. It's a great way to deepen your walk with God and your relationship with others around the breakfast table. We meet September through April at 8:15 AM, one Saturday a month.

IronMen Getaway

Our annual IronMen Getaway is held the last weekend of April. This time has been a transformational moment in the lives of many men as we “get away” with the guys and “get away” from the everyday, hectic pace. This is a place where men are sharpened so they will become more effective in various aspects of their lives.
