BGM is a celebration of facial fair, the gospel, and robust masculinity. We do not believe that God commands all men everywhere to grow their beards, nor do we believe that a beard makes one a man. Masculinity is about growing in love, grace, self-sacrifice and service. The beard is simply a beautiful bonus!
However, we would love to see another great era of the beard! Not a mere fad, but a generation of men who grow up and age well wearing the masculine mark.
Who Are We?
My name is Aaron Alford, and I am the Proprietor of this site. I am a missionary with Youth With A Mission, a writer, and, of course, a beard enthusiast!
Also contributing is Timothy Braun, a writer and pastor living in Martensville, Saskatchewan, Canada.
We are both Christians from different church backgrounds, and Bearded Gospel Men is welcoming of people from every walk of life and religious persuasion. What makes us who we are, of course, is our Christian faith, and while this will always be at the forefront of the BGM experience, we hope everyone can enjoy being here. Along with beard-related humour, we hope we can also offer something thoughtful, creative, and inspiring.

Peace and All Good.
