The people who serve in these businesses and churches contribute in a sustained, significant way that enables Reel Men of God to fulfill its mission.
Contributing and Major Sponsors are businesses and churches whose decision-makers share our vision of helping men become better fathers and husbands, as well as better fishermen. Ministry Partners like Smalljaw.com and Back40 Outreach are other ministries that lend support through promotional help, website links, contact sharing, and providing opportunities for service.
If you would like your company, ministry organization, or church to sponsor an event or become a Reel Men of God sponsor, we would be delighted to speak with you. Please email your contact information and how you would like to team with Reel Men of God to Larry McClure.
Because it’s not just entities but people who support the ministry of Reel Men of God, we want to recognize the people who are championing Reel Men of God and have committed to work with us to bring men to Christ through our shared love of fishing. Where available, we’ve added photos of the men and women who support our mission.
Stealth1 — Charging on the Run. Charge your batteries while underway for longer staying power and longer battery life—2 to 3 years longer when used as designed, which saves you money over the long run. Stealth1 works with your battery, not against it. It is a battery charger, not a smart switching device, so it doesn’t increase the alternator output to make up for its losses. It gives all the power available sooner than any when running, pulling, or 110 ac to as many as 10 to 12 batteries(12,24,36 and 48 VOLTS) while still protecting them. Both units weigh only 10.5 pounds. You may install the units in a compact stack or separate them to fill in available space. Award-winning product warranties and tech support. Call Nancy, Dave, or Danny at Stealth I, (888) 588-4506, and they will answer your questions and make sure you get what you need.
For provision, protection and the knowledge to bring you these products, Stealth 1 gives credit where it belongs: to the LORD JESUS CHRIST. I Peter 1: 3-7.

East Penn Manufacturing, a private, family-owned company, operates the largest single-site, lead-acid battery manufacturing facility in the world. Just after WWII, father and his Air Force veteran son DeLight Breidegam, Sr. and Jr., began rebuilding batteries in the small town of Bowers, PA. Senior’s friend, Karl Gasche, joined them, and the first two letters of the names “DeLight” and “Karl” formed the brand name of their line of batteries.

He’s seen relationships built on fishing grow faithful lives.
