Pete Alwinson has spent his adult life developing and speaking to men as a church planter, lead-pastor, seminary adjunct professor and on the radio for over thirty years. He’s the Executive Director of FORGE, a city-wide ministry of Man in the Mirror in Orlando, Florida. Pastimes include hiking 14’ers in Colorado, working out and hunting. Pete has been married to Caron for 37 years and together they have three grown children, two wonderful daughters-in-law and four perfect grandchildren who call him “Chief”.
Pastor Bob Brubaker is a 19 time Ironman Triathlon finisher, including the Ironman World Championship in Hawaii twice. Competing as a sponsored triathlete by SPAM, Bob was known as the Spamman (yes, the meat in a can) – but Bob’s passion for encouraging athletes to use their God-given opportunity for the glory of Christ led Bob to assist in launching the nationwide Iron Prayer ministry which today is flourishing under the banner of FCA Endurance. Although Bob is a pastor, author, conference speaker, and seminar leader, Bob’s real dynamic moment in life was his One Breath from Death – Look What God Can Do experience in 2005. As Bob says, “God blessing me to come back from having taken my last breath makes finishing the 140.6 miles of an Ironman triathlon pretty insignificant.” Bob is married to Jan going on 43 years and although they have no children, they have been blessed to minister in and outside the church most of their married life. Bob’s PowerBreak ministry, his story, books, and even information about his annual cycling ride across Florida can be found on his website.
