Firesmiths is a resource aimed at giving men the tools to build themselves and others into men of God. It focuses on the tent pole relationships of males, namely being Husbands and Sons, and creates a platform for easy discussion, camaraderie, and narrative about how a godly man can be improving these things. It also gives useful tools to turn these narratives into godly ones by teaching the art of how to study the Bible and properly apply it. Lastly, it provides opportunities for regular service around the church property as a narrative experience of manhood and proper stewardship within a local body. It is open to any age of men with the focus and respect necessary to have intimate discussions and self-study. It is open to respectful non-ABF members that wish to learn a Christian perspective on the subject of manhood.
