Breakout Speakers

The 2022 Men of Valor Conference is pleased to welcome the below group of men as our Forged Conference breakout speakers.


"Hank Sharpe is a Retired Sergeant First Class with just over 20 years of military experience. And a Father Everything from Artillery section Chief to Operations Sergeant Major as well as recruiter and Instructor. The job he loved most was Platoon Sergeant. He now works in textile manufacturing but as we all know that is not what defines him. Hank is what you would call a layman’s preacher or a blue-collar Bible thumper. A disciple of Jesus Christ and a husband to Cindy as well as a father to Savannah 21 years old and JW (Dubs) 8 years old.


Hank accepted Christ in 2006 after returning from Iraq and being invited to Church by a neighbor. He went on to start pursuing a degree in religion and serving as a deacon in his local Church. While on this spiritual high he was also hiding his depression and porn addiction while being a wretched liar and sinner He was later found out and that led to a deep dive into depression and suicide attempt. BUT GOD intervened and has been putting the pieces together ever since.


Hank is a zealot for the hearts of men (to a fault sometimes) As anyone that has been in a polo group with him can tell you. He lives his walk with Christ in the open faults and all and is well known for telling it like it is (good or bad) He has matured through submission to the Holy Spirit and the help of a few good men that God has blessed him with and now in God’s timing is ready to step out of the shadow of insecurity and depression into what he believes God has called him to.


I no longer live but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God who loved me gave Himself for me – Galatians 2:20

Brandon Rollins is married to his wife Micah. They have been married 22 years and have 4 children, Will, Morgan, Jordan, and Zach. Brandon served for 22 years as a deputy sheriff and retired from the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office in 2020. After coming to faith as a teen, he thought everything would be smooth sailing. Little did I know the pressure that life would bring upon the Christian man. A marriage that struggled at times (my hard head), critical incidents at work, addiction, raising children, just to name a few. But God!  His faithfulness through it all to keep his promises and work in their lives even when they didn’t see it. It’s amazing how being pressed and forged sometimes brings out the best in us. If you are facing difficult times, struggling as a Christian man to lead and love your wife well and raise your children you don’t want to miss this breakout session! He will see you there!!
