Welcome to Tend the Fire Ministries

Tend the Fire Ministries is designed to facilitate the development of strong men who are committed to accepting and pursuing their role as the spiritual leaders of their families first, then to their churches and communities.

We accomplish this by promoting and facilitating a simple, but effective, small-group structure that resonates with Kingdom-minded men. These small groups are known as IRNMN groups.


5 For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; 6 and to knowledge, self‐control; and to self‐control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; 7 and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love.

2 Peter 1:5-11

8 For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 But whoever does not have them is nearsighted and blind, forgetting that they have been cleansed from their past sins.

2 Peter 1:5-11

10 Therefore, my brothers and sisters, make every effort to
confirm your calling and election. For if you do these things, you will never stumble, 11 and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

2 Peter 1:5-11

The Montana Intensive

We are inviting men on a journey into the wild, into a story that we were made for.  Are you willing to reconstruct your view of God, to uncover your place in His story, and to vigorously choose the narrow path in the wilds of Montana?  His Kingdom is waiting for such men.  And this world is desperate for them.

“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.” Deut 6:4
