Iron Men’s Ministry’s Big Man’s Breakfast will be held at the International Ag Center’s Dairy Pavilion in Tulare, on Saturday, April 5, from 8-11:30am. The event, “The Biggest Men’s Breakfast in the State for the Best God in the World,” is a celebration of non-denominational Christian brotherhood with more than 25 local churches joining with Iron Men-affiliated churches from throughout the state.
The fast-paced men and boys’ event will feature Fresno State’s football legends Derek and David Carr. Derek led the Bulldogs into the national spotlight with an 11-1 record and a Top-25 BCS ranking in each of the eight FCS polls. In 12 games, Carr amassed an FBS-best 4,866 yards and 48 touchdowns, while completing over 70 percent of his passes. He led his team to the Mountain West Championship, and was named offensive player of the game in which he passed for more than 400 yards for the eighth time in 2013.
David Carr was the first overall pick of the 2002 NFL Draft. In his senior season, Fresno State beat Colorado, Oregon State and Wisconsin, all members of the BCS division – something unprecedented for a mid-major team. The Bulldogs climbed to as high as number eight in the national polls, and David was on the cover of Sports Illustrated. During his professional career, he played for the Houston Texans, Carolina Panthers, New York Giants, San Francisco 49ers and the New York Giants, where he received a Super Bowl ring after the 2011 season.
The story of Iron Men Ministries, from its beginnings in Visalia, is its growth and community impact statewide. Under founder John Lloyd of The Road Church, the discipleship-focused men’s ministry has exploded in the Central Valley as well as a host of churches in Northern and Southern California, and is starting in New York and other states.
The event features “tons of MAN food,” autograph opportunities, booths, displays and raffles. For tickets, visit www.ironmensministry.com. For additional information, contact Brandon Hall at [email protected], and for booth and sponsorship information, contact Nick Anthony at [email protected].
