Brett Clemmer, President
Brett Clemmer is a husband, father, disciple-maker, outdoor enthusiast, and avid Boston sports fan.
Brett joined Man in the Mirror in 2000 and serves as President. His passion is to make the church relevant to younger men and men on the fringe. In his writing and speaking, Brett breaks through the resistance that many men feel toward spiritual topics with his use of personal stories and humor.
Brett’s role at Man in the Mirror includes managing various programs; speaking at men's events, conferences and training programs; and writing. He is the co-author with Patrick Morley and David Delk of No Man Left Behind: How to Build and Sustain a Thriving Disciple-Making Ministry for Every Man in Your Church, as well as various articles and discipleship materials offered by the ministry.
Prior to Man in the Mirror, Brett worked in both the nonprofit and business sectors. Among other pursuits, he has run a juvenile detention shelter, a 700-bed homeless program, and the startup of a software company.
Brett and his wife, Kimberly, live in Casselberry, Florida. They have been married since 1991 and have two amazing kids, Cassidy and Jackson. Brett loves to hang out with his wife, go on rock climbing trips, and spend time with his friends. His latest hobby is riding a mountain bike (sometimes into gator-infested rivers).
“Men are struggling,” shares Brett. "I’ve had the opportunity to speak to men literally around the world. You know what? Most men struggle with the same things. They want to do it all on their own. Like Habakkuk says, ‘We worship our own strength.’ Unfortunately, it often takes a crisis to help men realize they need the love, grace and power of Christ to become the men they somehow sense they were made to be.”
