The Kentucky-Tennessee Conference and Blueprint for Men have teamed-up to provide you with the Iron Works Men’s Summit, a man-building weekend that will be held at Indian Creek Camp on the weekend of March 31-April 2, 2023.
“The Iron Works” serves as a metaphor and a framework for the weekend. From the crush of the mine to the finishing grind, it’s a process that every man goes through in life. And while no stage is comfortable the end product is worth it all, a sharp tool in the hand of God!
No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it. – Hebrews 12:11
If you would like become a sharper tool in the hand of God, check out the details below and consider attending this unforgetable weekend.

Dr. Ming Wang
Dr. Wang grew up in the 1960s. During this time, millions of innocent youth were deported to remote areas to face life sentences of poverty and hard labor. He had to play the Chinese violin (“erhu”) and learn to dance in order to try to escape a life in labor camps. He eventually made his way to America with only $50. Following, he graduated with the highest honors from Harvard Medical School and MIT.
Dr. Wang’s autobiography, From Darkness to Sight, is an inspirational story of how one man turned fear, poverty, persecution, and prejudice into healing and love for others. It demonstrates how focus, determination, humility, and profound faith can inspire a life that, in turn, impacts the lives of countless others. The book has inspired an upcoming movie called “Sight”. Dr. Wang’s story has also inspired a movie role in the film “God’s Not Dead”.
