TRANSFORMING THE LIVES OF MEN
The Rewired Men’s Conference is an annual event that takes place in the Arbuckle Mountains at a conference center known as Falls Creek. The focus is transforming the lives of men through a relationship with Jesus Christ. Rewired reaches men from all backgrounds and interests or what Keith Burkhart, Men’s Ministry Specialist at the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma, likes to call the different “tribes” of men. These tribes are what set Rewired apart from other men’s conferences around the country. It is one of the only conferences where you will see a biker, cowboy, hipster, gamer and businessman standing together in worship as the greater tribe of Christian men.
The unifying force that brings these men together is threefold: a love for Christ and desire to be men of God who influence their world; to find the right next step or direction for their relationship with God; and to find and build godly friendships with other men.
WHAT TO DO AT REWIRED
At Rewired there are activities for many of the tribes of men. Some of these activities include: Fitness Challenge, BBQ Showdown, 5K Run/Walk, sports challenges, intellectual games, demonstrations, trout fishing, and hiking.
This list will be updated continually up until the conference.

In 2017 we will offer 25 Truth Tracks. Pick one. Follow it through the entire conference. Don't worry, if you're having trouble picking, we will offer all of the Truth Tracks as downloadable Bible Studies after the Conference.
To the right are the Truth Track leaders for 2017. This is not all of the leaders for 2017. Listed are their names and where they are ministering. As we get closer to the conference, we will add bios, Truth Track titles and descriptions. For now, you can explore who they are and what they do through the links to their social media, websites and possibly videos.
Submit & Follow
There are different types of Christians. Many are "on-fire" for Jesus. But many are simply "luke warm." This Truth Track will guide men from being a luke warm Christian, to actually believing that the Bible is the flawless Word of God, no exceptions. Total submission to our Lord and following His Will, will lead us ultimately to success; Even with the challenges that we all face as men. During his Truth Track, Jeff will speak of his upbringing, and military experiences like having teammates killed and not knowing if they were Christians or not. He will speak about how the Lord turned him around and directed him where he was suppose to be.

If men are to lead, they need to be deeply anchored to the right things from the right heart. True leaders lead from the inside out, and men will never live Gospel-centered lives if they do not have Christ-centered hearts. In this Track, we will talk about being anchored in Christ, by God's Truth, and for eternal purposes. There will be such personal challenge and many practical applications as we dig into God's Word and get real and honest about what it truly means to be a man who is anchored.

Show Yourselves Men
There is a battle waged against every single man of God every single day of their lives. A man of God must be watching and remain alert for the battle that is coming, with his footing rooted deep in the faith.
To fight this battle, every man of God must be strengthened by the strength provided through Christ. This fight is only victorious when it is fought with the love of God who is the source and spring of love.
"Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. Let all that you do be done in Love." I Cor 16:13-14

Scripture: Can You Handle It? Becoming a Competent Expositor of God's Word
What is going to last? When it's all said and done, what still remains? When the smoke clears from the final apocalypse, what will still be standing? The answer to this question is crucial because whatever this might be is what we should build our lives on and around. Only two things will last forever, people and the word of God. There are other breakouts at Rewired that will equip you to make an impact on people, to mentor them, to coach them, and to lead them. This breakout will equip you to give people what they truly need, the word of God.

Trusting God Through The Changing Seasons Of Your Life
In the early years of our marriage and ministry, my late wife Debbie began to say to this to other people when they were going through a difficult time, “Just remember, this is only for a season.”
We all experience changing seasons in our life. With each new season there are new and unexpected challenges to trusting God. In each new season our faith in God needs to grow and change with new insights into who God is and how He wants us to trust Him. In this Truth Tract we will explore God’s Word and see what God says to us during these different seasons. From bible stories and stories of my changing seasons, I will be sharing how I have experienced God and how you can experience Him in your life by trusting Him through the changing seasons of your life.
In this Truth Track we will specifically cover these seasons of our life.
- Trusting God during lean times
- Trusting God in times of loss
- Trusting God in times of prosperity
