CALLING ALL MEN!
It is the expressed mission and intent of The Mighty Men of Triumph to seek out encourage, motivate and guide committed men in achieving excellence in morality, salvation, education, and character. To become the best, they can be. We also seek to motivate them to become bold Triumphant leaders of the New Age. Triumph is calling for young men to be ready to challenge the unknown areas of tomorrow without failure of nerve. As we become all that we can be triumphantly, we have to remember to look back and reach back for the generations that follow us. We have to be ready to train them in the Triumphant ways of the church and teach them to be Triumphant both spiritually and physically. We hope to make The Mighty Men of Triumph, the faith-based organization for the New Age.
The Characteristics of a Mighty Man
I do not choose to be a common man. It is my right to be uncommon…if I can. I seek opportunity, not security; I want to take the calculated risk; to dream and to build, to fail and to succeed. I prefer the challenges of life to the guaranteed existence, the thrill of fulfillment to the calm state of utopia. I will not trade freedom for benefit of my dignity for a handout. I will never cower before any master nor bend to any threat. It is my heritage to stand erect, proud, and unafraid, to think and act for myself, to enjoy the benefit of my creations, and to face the world boldly and say; with God’s help, this I have done. And all this is what it means to be a Triumphant Man. God bless the Triumphant Spirit.
History (Brother Alonzo Philmore, Originator of the Mighty Men of Triumph)
I observed after Sunday services, that the men at the local Triumph Church in Live Oak, Florida wanted and needed some type of activity for our enrichment and to empower us. I desperately wanted something for the young men to do. I wanted a program that would train the young men of Triumph to be men. I started an organization called T.E.A.M., which stands for Triumph Excellent Achieving Men. We began to meet on Monday nights. Our subjects included preliminary procedures, proper etiquette, public speaking, and Triumphant morals.
One night while I was speaking, one of the young men said that we needed to call ourselves The Mighty Men of Triumph, and the name was changed that night.
During one of our conferences (Annual or District), the late Prince Jona D. Olds came to Live Oak. Some of the young men from our local church spoke during the conference. Prince Olds was impressed and when he found out what the name of the group was, he began to carry The Mighty Men of Triumph forward, along with the principles that we stand for and the mission statement that we abide by.
The Mighty Men of Triumph has grown from a local organization to become an entity that is recognized by the national body of Triumph the Church and Kingdom of God in Christ. Under the leadership of the National Chairman, Apostle Wayne E. Redding, and the support of the brethren of this great overcoming body, the Mighty Men of Triumph has the potential to grow to a great magnitude.
Genesis 3:9 says, “And the Lord God called unto Adam and said unto him, Where art thou?” Today, that question can still be asked. The purpose of the Mighty Men of Triumph is for men, regardless of position or band affiliation, to come together to discuss and put into effect the Word and works of God. We realize that we must be good fathers, brothers, husband preachers, friends, workers, Kingdom Builders, and ultimately Mighty Men, in this day, while living by and exemplifying Triumphant morals.
We encourage you to come together and let us reason and begin to build. The Mighty Men of Triumph Needs “a FEW GOOD MEN” to get the teaching and the message across to our men and then spread it abroad.
Long Live Triumph and Triumphant Men
