The Forge

The Forge is the Men’s Ministry expression of The River Ministries. The Forge exists to be a catalyst for the hearts of men, endeavoring to wake them up to the bigger story they are vitally a part of and encouraging them to launch into the calling and desires of their lives.   We desire to inspire men to get their hearts back and be the leaders that we’re all called to be. It's an invitation to share one’s story, be Fathered well and to move forward into deep, godly masculinity.
