Iron Mercy is a music ministry because we do not just play music.
We will minister to people who want to hear about The Lord.
God is involved in every aspect of what we do.
We are a 3 member group who are not just musicians but most importantly, brothers in Christ.
Tim Maupin- Vocals & rhythm guitar.
Lawrence Steele- Bass.
We "keep it real" in what we do. We have personal testimonies & we share our testimonies at each show so people will know we have "been there" & also to show that we are here today because of the saving grace of Jesus.
We have been "on the other side of the fence" with drugs & alcohol & things of the world.
We have lived it , felt the concequences, & paid the price.
Jesus delivered us from it & we are here today to talk about it, tell you about it & to let you know that we understand & you can talk to us about your situation if you're in one.
Tim Maupin is a published author of a Christian book called Touches Of Grace that was published by Tate Publishing.
Touches Of Grace can be found at Barnes&Noble, or Amazon.com.
Before forming Iron Mercy, Tim was also signed on to the Tate music label as a single artist & his Cd "Gifts" can also be found at Barnes&Noble , & Amazon.com & also on the Tate Music Group website.
Iron Mercy's music is original , & the meaning of each song can be backed up biblically.
We take our job for God very seriously.
A few years ago, Tim Maupin felt that God was leading him to do something "more" with the music.
For 8 months Tim & his wife Michelle prayed for God to give them the answer.
After 8 months of prayer it was decided that they were to form not just a Christian band but also a music ministry.
They made a personal promise to God that this is what they would do & if God would open the doors then they would walk through those doors. They promised God that they would do whatever it takes & would give up whatever it takes to do this for Him.
Iron Mercy was formed & "Do whatever it takes" has been our belief since day 1.
To show you our dedication, Tim was at a job making $1,500 a week & gave it up because it got in the way of this ministry.
We have been through the ditches & we have been on the mountains but no matter what comes our way, Iron Mercy WILL go on!!
We take our promise to God VERY seriously.
Before anyone was even officially auditioned for the band, they were all asked the same question " How much are you willing to give up for this music ministry? Because even if we lose everything, Iron Mercy will go on".
Each show is special to us because God opened that door for us & after each show we realize why God put us there.
We have made many friends along the way, we have talked, prayed, laughed & cried with people, & because of our testimonies people have felt a connection with us & talked with us about what they are going through & that gives us a chance to let them know that Jesus is there with them.
We are just people like anyone else who have been through the trials & tribulations in life. We are not ashamed to tell in our testimonies that we have done marijuana, cocaine, pills, & alcahol.
We tell people this so they will understand that we have "been there" but look at us now!!
Because of Jesus we are saved, clean of our addictions & alive!
We keep it real...
That is what Iron Mercy is all about.
